Nothing takes a higher priority at Balfour than treating every resident with the deference, dignity, and attention he or she deserves. We emphasize strengths, abilities and keeping things positive.
It begins by recruiting and retaining an 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, encouraging interaction with residents in the most effective and caring way possible.
Equally important is maintaining 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 offer programming that helps stimulate long-term memories and increase enjoyment of the moment, including pet therapy, massage, and aromatherapy. Reminiscing and sensory activities draw on our residents’ strengths, allowing them to reflect and talk about themselves. Our care partners meet our residents where they are – in their world and in their time.
Apartment homes starting at $6,500 per month.

Daily Scheduled Events & Activities
A full calendar every day of the month, because life should be lived to the fullest
Like all Balfour communities, we offer a full Life Enrichment program that’s essential for physical and mental well being. These programs are specially designed for people who need memory care, with an emphasis on sensory stimulation.
At Cherrywood Village, we also offer Balfour Senior Living’s Dementia Day Program. This 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.
In order to protect the health of our residents and to align with state health recommendations, we have needed to curtail many of our group activities. We are still offering wellness activities but on a more personalized yet socially distant basis. Once the threat of COVID-19 has passed we will add back our link to Life Enrichment daily activities.
