What programs or activities does Symphony at the Waterways offer to keep residents engaged? How does the staff engage residents' long-term memories?

Our In the Moment® program is thoughtfully designed as a team-approach to care delivery. We describe what we offer as Memory Support because we’re intentionally shifting away from outdated Dementia care practices and into a hospitality model. We recognize that each person we are privileged to serve is both unique in their life history, as well as their Dementia journey. We understand the importance of a scheduled rhythm to each day. However, we also encourage our team members to slow down and embrace the impromptu moments that happen as well. We find it’s the spontaneous moments have high impact for both the care giver and the care receiver. Living In The Moment is the greatest gift we can give to anyone we serve during their journey.

Who assesses residents' health and cognitive functioning? How often is that assessment repeated?

Residents are evaluated by our Director of Health and Wellness or Executive Director and regularly evaluated. Please schedule a tour to learn more about our health evaluation process.

Each resident is evaluated on an individual basis to determine what services or techniques can best support his or her needs during mealtimes. Our memory support environment offers a smaller, more intimate setting than an independent or assisted living environment.
