Knowing When It's Time

The Beau Provence Experience

Beau Provence is Mandeville’s first and only memory care exclusive senior living community, providing state-of-the- art amenities and services to residents with Alzheimer's and dementia. Beau Provence features 40 beautifully appointed private and semi-private suites, two dining areas, a therapy room, and two therapeutic gardens. A full-time memory care director and two activities directors ensure that our residents benefit from specially designed programs tailored to fit each individual resident's abilities and needs.

"We bring our own specialized approach to memory care assisted living by creating a truly unique environment for our residents to lead enriched and engaged lives through exceptional quality of care, amenities, and individualized programs utilizing our award-winning memory care training.

Each resident benefits from our dedication to implementing the Warchol Best-Abilities Care Model. This commitment showcases the value we place in the unique qualities and needs of every person in our care, and we’re passionate about helping individuals with Alzheimer's and dementia live up to their highest potential each and every day. We strive daily to ensure that all of our residents enjoy life to the fullest as a result of individualized wellness plans, a brimming social activities calendar, and compassionate, experienced team members who ensure that help is always close by if needed.

Making the best decision regarding care for a loved one is a journey, and we understand that it can be difficult and stressful at times on you and your family. Our team is ready to talk, learn, and listen whenever you are. It would be our privilege to serve you and your loved one and welcome you into our family.”

The Beau Provence Philosophy

Several times each day, we answer the question, "Is this in the best interest of each of our residents?" If the answer is yes, then we can't go wrong. This simple operating philosophy is the secret to our continued success.
