The Memory Center

1853 Old Donation Parkway
Virginia Beach, VA 23454
Alzheimer’s and Memory Care
Our state of the art design is optimized to enhance the quality of life for all of our residents. The small town street welcomes residents with a town center featuring a movie theater, general store, bank, library, beauty salon, tavern and ice cream stand along with replicas of historical icons familiar to our residents. All residential wings open to the town center area.

Our therapeutic program "Memories & Motion" is grounded in Montessori-based principles of respect, dignity, independence and choice. Specialized programming includes activities in an environment that is success-oriented, failure free, purposeful and meaningful.

We provide a unique dietary program with a team of culinary associates to include: dementia-friendly menus to help prevent weight loss and selections that appealing to senses and easy to manage.

Operationally, all staff are trained in dementia care and the Resident Services Director specializes in geriatric care. Our managers and key staff members are Certified Dementia Practitioners (CDP), a credential that recognizes the highest standard in Alzheimer's and Dementia education. An in-house physician with expertise in dementia and Alzheimer's will assist with care tailored to best meet the needs of residents and families.

We believe the challenging conditions of the aging brain should be met with a caring, interactive community designed around the individual. The Memory Center offers every incentive to celebrate life and find purpose each day.
