Serving Richmond, VA: For the many challenges,
many ways to help.
We offer families in Richmond, VA and their loved ones a broad spectrum of services and support for memory care.
Monticello is designed for those with mild memory-support needs. An Assisted-Living staff serves nutritious meals and helps to manage medications. Otherwise, Monticello residents just sign out and navigate the campus as they please. They lead independent, active lives. We have three Monticello households of twelve residences each.
The Gables provides a secure environment for those with more pronounced cognitive and physical needs, cared for by a 24-hour nursing staff. In distinct households, uniquely decorated to help residents recognize their homes, they live in private residences with large bathrooms with walk-in showers.
Life and care revolve around the central kitchen, including an open sitting area with fireplace, inviting family rooms, an intimate dining room, and short hallways to residences. Each floor features its own resort-like spa. Residents can enjoy the safely enclosed patios, terraces and Mary Morton Parsons Garden.
Monticello and The Gables offer proven programs that help people with memory challenges maintain focus, have a sense of control, and be socially engaged. They include:
- Art Therapy: drawing, painting, printmaking, fiber and clay; and museum trips, books, DVDs, and games for art appreciation.
- Horticultural Therapy: arranging flowers, planting seeds and bulbs and harvesting vegetables for cognitive and sensory stimulation and to fulfill the natural human need to nurture.
- Music Therapy: using familiar songs and instruments to spark memories, improve communication and promote physical and social wellness.
These programs are made possible by donations to Westminster Canterbury Foundation.
