SYMPHONY AT CHERRY HILL

 

Symphony at Cherry Hill is the new standard of excellence in memory care for those who are experiencing memory loss.

 

We describe what we offer as Memory Support because we’re intentionally shifting away from outdated Dementia care practices and into a hospitality model. We recognize that each person we are privileged to serve is both unique in their life history, as well as their Dementia journey.  We understand the importance of a scheduled rhythm to each day. However, we also encourage our team members to slow down and embrace the impromptu moments that happen as well.  We find it’s the spontaneous moments have high impact for both the care giver and the care receiver.

 

Our Memory Support neighborhood is designed to offer residents a rich, full life, surrounded by people who truly care about their well-being. Join our team at Symphony at Cherry Hill!
