Commonwealth Senior Living at the Ballentine is a beautiful senior community located in a well-established neighborhood in central Norfolk, Virginia, offering assisted living with specialized memory care in a home-like setting. Residents enjoy the quiet, maintenance-free lifestyle while having access to all the area’s amenities. There are several nearby conveniences, including shopping malls, parks, and recreation facilities. Commonwealth Senior Living at the Ballentine is just a half-mile from DePaul Medical Center, and two other major hospitals and associated medical offices are within 10 miles of our community.

When daily activities such as bathing, dressing, or eating become difficult, a senior living community’s support will meet your basic living needs. Our team members at Commonwealth Senior Living at the Ballentine go above and beyond to ensure residents have comfort and independence. We create personalized care plans for each resident to provide the best care possible. Residents, family members, and personal physicians meet our specially trained caregivers and customize an individualized care plan unique to the resident. The care plans provide the necessary care and support each resident’s interest and passions, ensuring that they can continue participating in activities that bring them joy.

Life is experienced in moments for those who have Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia. The Sweet Memories™, our signature program at Commonwealth Senior Living at the Ballentine, allows us to meet residents where they are in each moment and design a lifestyle that engages and inspires joy every day.
