Memory loss is life-changing for all involved –you, your family, as well as your loved one. Our team deeply understands Alzheimer’s and dementia, and we seek ways to capitalize on resident’s strengths, despite deterioration of recall. We help residents and families find ways to enjoy the beauty of special times, even if only moments. We honor the past, savor the present and look toward making the times that lie ahead manageable, comfortable and ultimately, peaceful.
We can accommodate all levels of memory loss, including seniors with severe end-stage. Alzheimer’s disease typically progresses slowly in three general stages — mild (early stage), moderate (middle-stage), and severe (late-stage). Since Alzheimer’s affects people in different ways, the timing and severity of dementia symptoms vary as each person progresses through the stages of Alzheimer’s differently.

Specialized Care for a Very Special Person – Your Loved One
We believe the degree of memory loss is an important consideration when planning care.
The goal at The Kensington Reston is to help each residence live independently as long as they are able. We assist in the process by providing care customized to your loved one’s level of memory loss. It’s care in which we offer assistance where needed, but step back to encourage his or her sense of independence.
In addition to round the clock loving care and support, we also provide relevant clinical services.
When needed, we also provided a continuum of care through our affiliation with HealthPRO Heritage. They provide full-time, on-site, state licensed physical therapists, occupational therapists and speech language pathologists, to help our residents optimize independent living.
You can have the peace of mind and confidence of knowing that your loved one is in capable, professional hands at all times.
We understand that getting a Alzheimer’s diagnosis raises many questions for your entire family. At The Kensington Reston, we’re here to help you navigate this new stage of life.
The answers to these commonly asked questions are a starting point. If you have further questions, please reach out to us and share your thoughts, questions, and needs: (571) 570-9607.
What is memory care?
Memory care is a specialized form of assisted living where residents live in an environment that is safe and structured, designed specifically to manage their symptoms, lower stress, and provide the compassion and care they need to live comfortably.
Memory care at The Kensington Reston provides residents with around-the-clock care from specially trained medical professionals and staff.
Our two memory care neighborhoods allow for tailored and individualized care: Connections and Haven.
Connections is for residents with early- to middle-stage dementia.
Haven is for residents with mid- to late-stage dementia, including those with behavioral challenges.
We also provide partnership programs and collaborations with specialized professionals who generate positive care outcomes based on current research findings.
To help residents thrive as much as possible physically, mentally, and spiritually, we provide customized small-group activities, special time with family and friends, and all-day dining as well.
How do I know if memory care is the right option?
The right time to transition a loved one to memory care is different for every family.
It may be prompted by a specific dementia diagnosis. Or you may consider changes in behavior or needs that may require more specialized care.
Is there a noticeable difference in cognitive function, behavioral changes, or diminishing physical health? Has physical safety become a concern? What would provide the best circumstances both for the person with dementia and their caregivers?
It’s also important to research and consider what care options are available and what you feel most comfortable with. Dementia can be challenging to navigate, so you want a care team that your family can trust so that you feel confident about your next steps.
We’re here to help if you would like to discuss your questions and options to know if memory care is the right option for you.
