They determine the resident’s needs and also identify each individual’s abilities and choices. With all of that essential information, they develop and implement the personalized care plan.

Memory Care

Sweet MemoriesTM

Alzheimer’s and Dementia Care in Gloucester, VA

If your loved one has Alzheimer’s disease or other form of dementia, we are here to help.

Our award-winning memory care program – Sweet MemoriesTM – offers the care, support and lifestyle your loved one deserves and the peace of mind you will treasure.

At the heart of Sweet MemoriesTM is our dedicated caregiving team. Certified in Virtual Dementia Tour® training, these special people have a very personal and thorough understanding of living with Alzheimer’s disease or another form of dementia, enabling them to offer exceptional care.

Sweet MemoriesTM

Sweet Memories™ provides the most exceptional care and lifestyle available in the area to our residents.

From cozy, comfortable memory care neighborhoods that feel like home to our experienced management team, every aspect of our program has been carefully created to provide the very best memory care experience possible.

We understand and respect that each person in our care has unique needs and abilities. So the Sweet Memories™ program embraces 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 to ensure the best possible experience for our residents and their families.

Move-in: Whether our residents are moving to Gloucester House from their home or from a hospital, we guide them through every step of the transition to our community, seeing to all of their physical and emotional needs.

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 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 latter 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.
