You know that nothing is more important than your health and we couldn’t agree more. From Assisted Living to a specialized Memory Care Center, Salem Terrace is ready to meet your unique needs, as they are today and as they will be in the future.

Care Level Options

Independent Living Options

Our Apartment Living accommodations cater to active seniors who yearn to retire in comfort and luxury but do not need personal assistance. Apartment Living residents are afforded all of the amenities of our community such as activities, social events and maintenance-free living. Weekly housekeeping, linen services, and meal plans are also available. If further assistance is required, there is no reason to leave your private apartment. We provide everything you need for carefree, relaxing retirement living.

Assisted Living

Salem Terrace offers four levels of assisted living care for residents in need of extra help with activities of daily living. A wide variety of assisted living care services, ranging from help with medications to mobility assistance, is offered to suit each individual’s unique care needs. Care levels are based on a personalized assessment to determine the appropriate amount of support required. As always, licensed nurses and certified nursing assistants are on duty 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

Memory Care

Managing the 24-hour a day responsibility of caring for a loved one with Alzheimer’s or dementia can overwhelm even the most dedicated caregiver. The Dogwood Memory Care Center at Salem Terrace at Harrogate offers a comforting option. Since opening in 2010, Dogwood Memory Care Center has been awarded and complimented for its design, functionality, and care of Alzheimer’s and dementia residents. Designed with the safety and serenity of the residents in mind, each room features a private half-bath, dressing and sitting areas. In addition, individual memory boxes to display mementos and special photographs are located outside of each resident’s door.
The most important feature is our person-centered care for each Dogwood resident. A secure, outdoor walking garden provides an opportunity for physical exercise and mental stimulation. All activities are planned by a specially trained activities director, focusing on the needs of Alzheimer’s and dementia residents. Every step of the way – from dining to crafts – a member of our Salem Terrace team is close at hand to nurture, guide, and assist.
