Sweet MemoriesTM

Alzheimer’s Disease and Dementia Care in Farnham, VA

At Commonwealth Senior Living at Farnham, we offer award-winning memory care for residents with Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of dementia.

Sweet Memories™ enhances the lives of residents and their families. At the heart of the program is our dedicated caregiving team. Certified in Virtual Dementia Tour® training, our team members have a very personal and thorough understanding of the challenges presented by Alzheimer’s disease or another form of dementia, enabling them to offer compassionate care.

Award-Winning Care • Sweet MemoriesTM

Commonwealth’s Sweet Memories™ memory care program provides the most exceptional care and lifestyle to our residents living with Alzheimer’s disease and another form of dementia and complete peace of mind to their families.

From our cozy, comfortable memory care neighborhoods to our experienced management team, everything in our program has been carefully designed and selected to provide an exceptional memory care experience.

Understanding that each person in our care has specific needs and abilities, Sweet Memories™ takes an individualized approach to care. By developing a personalized care plan, we can provide the most appropriate support, care, guidance and understanding.

Program Components

Sweet MemoriesTM consists of three components so our residents and their families enjoy the best possible memory care experience.

Move-in: From physical to emotional needs, we guide our residents through every step of the transition to our community, whether from home or hospital.

Evaluation through life history: We learn each resident’s life story. We conduct a comprehensive interview with family members. We talk. We ask questions. We listen. We get to know our residents as people. We learn about their medical, mental, emotional, spiritual and intellectual needs, as well as their habits and preferences.

Resident-centered care plan: With this very personal knowledge, our leadership team creates a customized care plan to meet the specific needs of the resident.

Signature Programs • Signature Experience

Unique. Effective. Innovative. Forward-thinking. Our signature Sweet MemoriesTM programs make a tremendous difference in the lives of our residents and their families.

One Sweet Memory: Winner of the Best Practice Award from the Virginia Assisted Living Association (VALA), for going above and beyond the standards of care. Our team members regularly capture highlights of each resident’s day in photographs that are shared regularly with family members.

Expressions: When verbal skills begin to fail, art can become a means of self-expression for residents. Conversational prompting stimulates memories which residents can interpret using a variety of mediums, including painting.

Special Touch: Designed specifically for those with late-stage memory loss, this program provides “special touches” that make a difference in care. In the morning, before breakfast, residents enjoy citrus scented towels to awaken taste buds; before dinner, lavender scented towels help to relax, reinforce the natural circadian rhythm and encourage residents to enjoy their meals. 

Sweet Melodies: For those with late-stage dementia who have lost verbal skills, Sweet Melodies stirs memories by using nostalgic music selected by family members. 

SMILETM Technology: Through SMILETM, we can remain connected to your loved one every day. This computer program enables us to keep you updated on your loved one’s participation in and enjoyment of our programming, sharing photos and stories with you on a daily basis.

Memory Care Life Stations: Thoughtful spaces invite your loved one to reconnect and engage with past hobbies, professions and passions.
