In the secured Valeo™ memory care neighborhood in Homestead at Hamilton, residents and their families enjoy a sense of community where the team is focused on maximizing the abilities of those living with memory impairment in a comfortable and safe environment that feels like home.
Our unique wellness philosophy is a way of life at Homestead at Hamilton and a trademark philosophy that focuses on each resident’s potential to achieve his or her personal goals through engagement and connections. Salus™ by Solvere, incorporates Masterpiece Living®, a cutting-edge program based on years of research on aging well. Salus reminds us that all facets of operations, from housekeeping and dietary to clinical and financial, impact the health, well-being and safety of residents.
This philosophy encompasses the needs of those living with memory impairments through the Valeo Memory Care program. VALEO (pronounced va-LAY-oh), Latin for “to thrive,” is much more than a program – it’s integrated into every aspect of care and service at Homestead at Hamilton. Customized to the individual, Valeo enables memory care residents to thrive and have meaningful interactions through one-on-one programs, to build relationships with others and grow connections.
Dementia and memory care are not one-size-fits-all. At Homestead at Hamilton, we recognize that each person’s life experiences and needs are unique, and they face their own individual challenges and symptoms. Our care plans are customized for each individual and enable us to successfully meet each resident’s needs, make a difference in each of their lives and foster a lifestyle that honors their legacy and passions through our Valeo Signature Programs.

From comfort and safety to privacy, our Wainwright and Taylor memory care floor plans provide all the conveniences of home.
Virtual Dementia Tour (VDT)
Putting yourself in the shoes of someone living with Alzheimer’s, or other forms of dementia, is a great way to help you understand and communicate effectively with your family member or friend.
We understand that it is difficult to care for someone living with dementia without having walked in their shoes. The Virtual Dementia Tour lets caregivers personally experience the tough day-to-day challenges those with dementia face. The empathy and patience you will feel for people with dementia following this sensory simulation experience are immediate.
The following memory care services are included in your monthly fee:

- 24-hour health monitoring
- 24-hour security

Helping Hands To Help Minds Thrive
Individuals who build a career at Homestead at Hamilton are filled with optimism and a genuine desire to help others. You don’t just work at Homestead – you care, motivate and engage.
Our industry-leading training programs teach all team members — even non-clinically licensed employees such as operations, dining or housekeeping — how to compassionately support the day-to-day needs of residents with memory impairments while finding ways to engage with them. Our methods and leadership give team members permission to slow down, make connections and gain a deeper understanding of residents’ lives.
Every person on the team — from housekeepers to bookkeepers to the kitchen and wellness teams — are considered care providers in the community and are trained to go above and beyond. Team members take the time to truly get to know each resident and work every day to create moments of joy. Team members are encouraged to blend personal interests and experiences with the lives of residents, lead group activities and interact on a regular basis. Residents have endless opportunities to stay engaged in positive experiences yet can always find privacy and quiet time when they need it.
For the Valeo philosophy to achieve success, we encourage families to play a key role in engaging residents and rekindling joy and memories. Valeo is an opportunity to preserve the legacy and memories of family members for new generations.
