The Memory Center Facility

Chesterfield Welcomes Alzheimer’s Care Facility

The Memory Center, an innovative residential community for individuals with Alzheimer’s and similar dementias, is making Chesterfield the home of its second location. The groundbreaking is scheduled for July 16, 2014.

The 34,000-square-foot facility, which will be adjacent to the St. Francis Medical Center, is anticipated to open by the beginning of 2015. The project is a total investment of $13 million in the County. It is expected to create 80 new jobs.

“We are extremely pleased that The Memory Center is opening its second Virginia location in Chesterfield County… Projects such as this contribute to keeping Chesterfield County a ‘First Choice’ community,” said Jim Holland, chairman of the Chesterfield County Board of Supervisors.

The Memory Center prides itself on its unique “Town Center” concept. Amenities will include a movie theater, library, general store, bank, tavern, ice cream stand and salon. The facility will also feature the latest technologies for complete medical over-site, a four-to-one resident to staff ratio, coordinated therapy services, secured entrances and camera monitoring systems.

“The community will set a new standard in the greater Richmond area for the care and well-being of people suffering with Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of cognitive loss,” said Memory Center Chairman and CEO Kevin DiBona.

The Virginia Beach-based company is one of the few organizations in the state that focuses on assisted living communities exclusively for memory care.

“[The Memory Center is] among the leaders in providing a safe and secure living environment for individuals facing the challenges of Alzheimer’s and other related dementias and we are gratified that our citizens will have now have another quality care option,” said Holland.
