Commonwealth Assisted Living opens first Chesterfield County facility
Commonwealth Assisted Living LLC, based in Charlottesville, has opened its newest project, Commonwealth Assisted Living in Chesterfield County. The company spent the last six months and $2.5 million renovating the 33,152-square-foot property it acquired in April at 4931 Ridgedale Parkway.
The most dramatic change, according to the company, is the addition of a new memory-care section for residents experiencing memory loss, Alzheimer’s disease or other dementias.
The program offers a resident-centered approach with home-like environments designed to provide care as residents progress through the stages of dementia.
Chesterfield’s Commonwealth Assisted Living has 36 private and companion-assisted living suites, each with a private bathroom, and 18 memory-care suites. Residents receive assistance with activities of daily living as well as meals, housekeeping, transportation and ongoing social activities. The company plans a second-phase, $1.2 million project that will add more beds to the property.
Commonwealth Assisting Living now has 20 communities throughout Virginia, 15 of which provide Alzheimer’s and memory care.
