Community

It is all about our commitment to the individual – treating each resident with the deference, dignity and attention he or she deserves. We emphasize the strengths and abilities of our residents, keeping things positive. Nothing takes a higher priority at Balfour than recruiting and retaining experienced staff. Intensive training for all staff along with monthly in-service programs creates an environment of learning and interest. Our care partners are trained in validation approaches, which encourage interaction with residents in the most effective, caring way possible.

Equally important is strong communication between our care partners and the families of our residents. Our regular care meetings and educational and family council gatherings create a collaborative caring environment for residents and families.

We take great pride in creating an atmosphere that brings real joy and a sense of purpose. Residents are encouraged to make new friends and feel a part of a community at large—a vibrant community that’s geared to their unique needs.

Apartment homes starting at $7,300 per month.

Amenities & Services

Our goal is to nurture the spirit of our residents. Our staff is skilled in combining stimulation and relaxation with a healthy dose of ordinary daily activities such as folding linens, baking cookies and gardening.

We offer activities that help stimulate long-term memories and increase enjoyment of the moment, including pet therapy, music therapy, massage, and aromatherapy. Reminiscing and sensory activities draw on our residents’ strengths, allowing them to reflect, engage, and talk about themselves.

Our care partners meet our residents where they are—in their world and in their time. Balfour’s spirit of activity-filled days and nights, beautiful surroundings, and a collaborative, family-oriented community is a vision for a new generation of Memory Care/Alzheimer’s care-giving.

Short term respite care also available.  Please contact leasing team for details.

Dementia Day Program

Balfour Senior Living’s Dementia Day Program offers a welcoming and structured environment to those individuals who would benefit from the joys of daily experiences with others who appreciate the same community structure.

We offer individualized Life Enrichment programming for those with memory loss. Our specialized programming stimulates the intellect and engages individuals in success-oriented social interactions.  Our broad range of activities – from outdoor gardening and painting in private, inner courtyards, to live musicians and entertainment – all  in our secure community environment.

Day Program participants and their families can choose how often they would like to attend our program. It is flexible and customizable, according to your needs.  Although, some may choose to participate in a full day’s program, others may come for shorter periods of time. We can also be extremely helpful in emergency situations.

Experience all of the amenities and services we offer that are designed to serve the psychosocial, physical, and medical needs of each and every participant.  Professionals trained in dementia care partner with medical staff to ensure that individualized goals and needs are met.

We know how important enjoying a meal together is to enriching any relationship. Our classically trained chefs prepare every meal using fresh seasonal produce, exquisite proteins, and farm-to-table ingredients.  Day Program participants, along with their family and friends, are always welcome to enjoy a meal together.
