Independent Living

Assisted Living

At Commonwealth Senior Living at Cedar Manor, residents appreciate having the care they trust and the lifestyle they deserve.

When daily activities, such as bathing, dressing or eating present a challenge, the support of a senior living community provides peace of mind that these essential needs will be attended to. At Commonwealth Senior Living at Cedar Manor, our associates go well beyond the essential needs to ensure that residents have the comfort and independence of their own suites, the peace of mind that housekeeping, cooking, and a 24 hour team are caring for them, and the social engagement that makes life fun!

We understand that making a move to senior living is a big step.  Moving from the family home can be both emotionally and logistically difficult. That is why our team works with families every step of the way from working with the primary health practitioner to ensure the right care is provided to recommending trusted realtors and moving companies to make sure the move is seamless.

Personalized Care

At Commonwealth Senior Living at Cedar Manor, we know that no two residents will have the same needs, abilities or preferences. To provide the most appropriate care possible, we develop personalized care plans for each resident.

To develop these plans, our specially trained caregivers meet directly with residents, their family members, and personal physicians. The care plans deliver the care that is needed, but also identify and support each resident’s interests and passions to ensure they will be able to continue enjoying the hobbies that bring them joy.

An Active Lifestyle

While the need for support may have brought our residents to our doors, we respect that their desire to live full, engaging, active lifestyles hasn’t changed at all. To keep our residents involved and inspired, we offer dynamic lifestyle programming, including:

Memory Care

Sweet Memories™ Memory Care In Chesapeake, VA

For those with Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of dementia, life is experienced in moments. Commonwealth Senior Living at Cedar Manor’s Sweet Memories™ program was designed to meet residents where they are in each moment and design a lifestyle which will engage and inspire joy each day.

At the very heart of Sweet Memories™ is our dedicated team of caregivers. Certified in Virtual Dementia Tour® training, these special people have a very personal and thorough understanding of the challenges presented by Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of dementia.

An Award-Winning Memory Care Program

Sweet Memories™ has been carefully and purposefully designed to deliver the highest quality of care to our residents and provide peace of mind to their families. This is done by learning the life story of each resident to help create opportunities for them to continue exploring their passions and engage in the world around them. 

From our vibrant and welcoming memory care neighborhoods to our management team, every aspect of the program has been selected to ensure that your loved one and your family have an uplifting memory care experience with us.

A resident-centered program, Sweet Memories™ features three primary components to aid in the transition process and help ensure our residents get the very most out of their memory care.

Primary Components

Move-in: Whether moving to Commonwealth Senior Living at Georgian Manor from home or hospital, we guide our residents through every step of this journey, meeting every need, from physical to emotional.

Evaluation through life history: Residents shape their own care, so we start by getting to know each as an individual. We conduct a comprehensive interview with family members, asking questions, listening and learning. We consider all aspects of life, including medical, mental, emotional, spiritual and intellectual needs, as well as habits and preferences.

Resident-centered care plan: Once we have our resident’s life story, we create a customized care plan to meet their specific needs and promote their specific strengths.

Sweet Memories™ Signature Programs

You’ll only find them here! Our innovative programming makes a tremendous difference in the lives of our residents and their families.

One Sweet Memory: Winner of the Best Practice Award from the Virginia Assisted Living Association (VALA), for going above and beyond the standards of care. Community staff regularly captures highlights of each resident’s day in photographs that are shared regularly with family members.

Expressions: When verbal skills begin to fail, art can become a means of self-expression for residents. Conversational prompting stimulates memories which residents can interpret using a variety of mediums, including painting.

Special Touch: Designed specifically for those with late-stage memory loss, this program provides “special touches” that make a difference in care. In the morning, before breakfast, residents enjoy citrus scented towels to awaken taste buds; before dinner, lavender scented towels help to relax, reinforce the natural circadian rhythm and encourage residents to enjoy their meals.

Sweet Melodies: For those with latter stage dementia who have lost verbal skills, Sweet Melodies stirs memories by using nostalgic music selected by family members.

SMILE Technology: Through SMILE™, we can remain connected to your loved one every day. This computer program enables us to keep you updated on your loved one’s participation in and enjoyment of our programming, sharing photos and stories with you on a daily basis.

Memory Care Life Stations: Thoughtful spaces that help your loved one to reconnect and engage with past hobbies, professions and passions.
