residential care for alzheimers
Neighborhood Living Area

The Memory Center communities provide exceptional care for those living with Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia.  Our Virginia Beach location was founded as the first assisted living facility devoted specifically to memory care, with our Town Center and program designed to meet the challenging conditions of an aging brain with a caring, interactive community.

Utilizing the latest in science, nutrition and interactive therapies, our daily structured activities provide meaningful purpose to those with memory loss.

All Memory Center communities are built around our original Town Center and Neighborhood layout and feature focused programming and daily activities available across all levels of dementia.  We get to know each resident for who they are today – not who they used to be.

 Supporting Your Family by Providing an Exceptional Level of Care

At The Memory Center, we support not only our residents, but also their families.  We encourage families to stay involved and ask questions so they can rest easier knowing their loved one is safe, happy and receiving care they can feel good about.

A critical ingredient to our success is our high resident to staff ratio (4:1), far above the industry standard, and our low staff turnover.  This means our staff get to spend more time interacting directly with residents and providing individualized care.  Your loved one gets the care they deserve and family members get peace of mind.

From structured daily activities designed to focus and engage the aging mind to providing end of life care and comfort measures, The Memory Center is here to help your family.

All Memory Center staff complete 4 times more training than established by state-run regulatory agencies.

In addition, all Memory Center managers, key staff and corporate team members have achieved their CDP (Certified Dementia Practitioner) certification recognizing the highest standard in Alzheimer’s and dementia education by the National Council of Certified Dementia Practitioners (NCCDP).

Attaining this specialized CDP certification benefits both residents and their families.  This comprehensive training, focusing specifically on Alzheimer’s and dementia care, ensures The Memory Center staff are equipped to help reduce the risk for injury during activities of daily life (ADL) care, wandering, and behavioral changes.
