Symphony’s Assisted Living Neighbourhoods are called “Oasis®.” The name “Oasis” was chosen as it represents a calm and peaceful place where you can live your life and leave your worries behind! Oasis is the ideal solution for seniors who value their independence, yet need some assistance with daily living, or perhaps just don’t want to live alone anymore and are looking for a greater sense of security and community.
Companion Living with Symphony Assisted Living
In today’s economy, many families are looking for options to make senior living more affordable. Companion Living is a special Symphony program that brings together two residents to share a suite. This living option can help you realize your financial goals without compromising the quality of care that you or your loved one needs and deserves.
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.
Forest Valley Terrace combines classically elegant style with a homey environment that facilitates comfort and peace. Assisted living care extends to all forms of assistance, including catheter care, feeding tube assistance, and help with bathing. There is also a concierge onsite 24 hours a day. Guest stays here are very welcome, an ideal way to experience the care, service and community life at this superior care home. Its proximity to Highway 174, makes it easy and appealing for family to visit or to just drop in.
