COVID-19 Information

All four Symphony Senior Living properties are completely COVID-19 free, we have been since the beginning of the pandemic in mid-March. We managed to stay this way because of our extremely dedicated staff and management teams along with our early implementation of safety guidelines!
Our properties have been keeping our friends and families up to date on Facebook with all our activities we've been doing to keep our residents engaged. Staff, managers, and residents have all showcased talents and found a way to have fun while being in quarantine. At the moment, we are not allowing any non-essential visitors so we set up Zoom accounts in every property so family members can connect with their loved ones virtually. We host virtual events and post on our social media daily.

We are now safety accepting new residents into our homes. The guidelines are as follows:
- Negative COVID test within 24 hours prior to admission
- Mandatory 14-day isolation period
- One time companionship fee for residents with dementia.

Call us today and schedule a virtual tour! We'd love to have you.

Dementia & Memory Care (definition)
Cost from $3,900

At Forest Valley Terrace, we are renowned for our leadership and expertise in the field of Memory Care. Our proprietary program – called “Moments®” – was developed by Symphony with assistance from several longstanding, experienced members of the dementia care community in both the US and Canada, and is based on many accepted and prevailing practices which are known to reduce symptoms of dementia. We continually incorporate the extensive data and cutting-edge research of leading organizations such as The Alzheimer’s Society, Women’s Brain Health Initiative, and many others in an effort to provide the best possible Memory Care for our residents. Our hands-on experience also gives us unique insights, and we listen and learn every day. For example, one of our team members suggested we try wearing pajamas during the night, as many residents were waking up and they were confused by the bright lights and people walking around in day clothes; so, we reduced the lighting and changed into pajamas… the best part was when our team members came back to us and said “it’s working, our residents see us in pajamas and realize it is the middle of the night and back to bed they go.” Sometimes it is the small, common sense ideas that can make a huge difference.
