Welcome to Commonwealth Senior Living at Willow Grove!

"Finding a safe place for mom that allowed her to retain her dignity I was afraid we faced an impossible task.  I wanted her close to me, and looked at four nice places. Commonwealth Senior Living at Willow Grove was the one I loved at first sight, and so did mom.  It has lots of light and is next to the sweetest lake with swans, ducks and geese.  Many of the residents are interesting nice folks like my mom, who have mobility challenges, but make their way with or without assistance as they desire.  My mom loves the fitness class, the weekly on-site beautician and monthly on-site podiatrist.  She even grudgingly admits the on-site physical therapy room and staff are helping her be more steady and independent. The staff were kind, caring, helpful and knowledgeable in a very scary and confusing time for my mom and me."

Memory Care

Sweet Memories™ at Commonwealth Senior Living at Willow Grove

At Commonwealth Senior Living at Willow Grove, we believe that people with Alzheimer's disease and other forms of dementia have very unique needs that deserve very unique care. Our Sweet Memories™ program was designed to meet those needs and deliver that care, both today and in the future.

It all starts with our team of dedicated caregivers. 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.

Award-Winning Care • Sweet Memories™

Commonwealth's Sweet Memories™ memory care program has been created to deliver the most exceptional care and lifestyle to our residents living with Alzheimer's disease and other forms of dementia.

From the welcoming front porch entrance and homey feeling of our memory care neighborhoods to the experience of our management team, everything in our program has been carefully chosen to deliver the best memory care experience possible.

Understanding that each person in our care has different needs, Sweet Memories™ takes a resident-centered approach. By developing a personalized care plan, we can provide support that not only meets needs, but also promotes abilities and independence.

Program Components

Sweet Memories™ consists of three primary components to ensure an exceptional memory care experience.

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

Evaluation through life history: We get to know each resident personally. 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 emotional, spiritual, intellectual, and mental 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 while honoring their life story and journey.

Signature Programs • Signature Experience

Unique and effective, our signature Sweet Memories™ 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 later stage dementia who have lost verbal skills, Sweet Melodies stirs memories by using nostalgic music selected by family members.

SMILE™ Technology: Through SMILE™, 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.

Sweet Memories™ Services & Amenities:

  • Healthy, family-style dining options that meet nutritional need and dining skill levels 
  • Regularly activity schedules that stimulate the mind and body, as well as customized socialization programs designed to fit the cognitive, social and mental skills of the resident
