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 our Tampa memory care community. 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 Tessera of Westchase, 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.


There’s no place like home. We understand that at Tessera of Westchase. Our memory care apartments provide a safe, comfortable and secure environment for those who require memory care. With maximum luxury and privacy, our one-bedroom, studio and companion suite memory care floor plans provide all the conveniences of home.


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.

As part of the Valeo memory care programming, Lorie Dancy, VP of Wellness Services, and Dora Cantwell, VP of Sales and Marketing, are both certified to introduce caregivers to the Virtual Dementia Tour.

To learn about when the next Virtual Dementia Tour will be offered at our Tampa memory care community or to hear more about how residents here are thriving, contact us or call 813-654-7194 today.

Helping Hands To Help Minds Thrive

Individuals who build a career at Tessera of Westchase in Tampa, FL, are filled with optimism and a genuine desire to help others. You don’t just work here – 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, such as Alzheimer’s and dementia, 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 memory care 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 memory care residents, lead group programs 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.

Our Westchase memory care community is different than other traditional skilled nursing and memory care homes in the Tampa and Hillsborough County area. Contact us to schedule a visit.
