Welcome to Charter Senior Living of Columbia!

Memory Care in Columbia, Maryland, That Enhances the Human Spirit

If someone you love has Alzheimer’s disease, dementia, or another memory-related illness, you want the very best in care. You want a care plan and quality-of-life programming that offer safety and security and will empower your loved one to live as fully and happily as possible for as long as possible – while providing you with peace of mind. Charter Senior Living of Columbia is that Memory Care community.

Memory Care is all we do – Our Memory Care community, located in Columbia, MD, and serving residents in Howard County, is designed to benefit people living with memory loss. Our staff is specially trained in interacting, engaging and caring for residents with different forms of dementia.

Our highly acclaimed Flourish℠ Memory Care program is second to none. But what we think really sets us apart – and how we enhance the human spirit – are as follows:

Family Feel – Our warm family feel is more intimate than ever. Everyone knows everyone. Our staff and residents continue to love, laugh and learn together. They share truly special bonds … just like family.

Personalized Care – We make it our mission to know residents and their families personally. It’s that special something larger communities simply cannot match. We offer dementia care in Columbia, Maryland. Our highly skilled dementia caregivers are committed to ensuring residents can enjoy a lifestyle that honors who they are and where they are today.

Active, Purposeful Lifestyle – We’re not your typical Memory Care community. We’re all about experiences. We do more. Engage more. Live more.

We’re out and about in the Columbia, Maryland, community getting ice cream, walking in the park and dining at local restaurants. And when you visit us, you’ll enjoy lots of engagement and plenty of smiles.

As a Charter Senior Living community, we have a stellar reputation for providing the highest quality senior living. This is life at Charter Senior Living of Columbia… you’ll love our experience and feel our difference on your first visit! Schedule a tour today.

Alzheimer’s disease and dementia are conditions a person can live with for many years. We’ve created a lifestyle and programming plan that work together to help residents live their best lives wherever they may be on their journeys.

Families take comfort in knowing we provide exceptional care, quality wellness programming and meaningful social activities like impromptu small-group classes, sensory component exercises and Oshibori experiences.

Each day, we go above and beyond to enrich the lives of our residents in a caring, comfortable atmosphere. We invite you to come and Feel the Charter Difference.


Charter Senior Living of Columbia offers Short-Term stays and Respite Care.

These care services aim to help those who need a little assistance with caregiving during the month. You can also “try out” senior living in Columbia, Maryland, before making a commitment.

Our guests enjoy restaurant-style dining, a spacious activity center, numerous social and recreational events and a barber and beauty salon.

Guests get to enjoy all the same amenities as residents – and you get peace of mind that your loved one is taken care of by the best. As a loved one may know, the medical process is really only part of your journey. If you have a loved one with dementia who has recently had surgery, gone through rehab treatment or is coming back from an injury or illness, we’re here to help. We also offer rehabilitation services for those with Memory Care needs.

{Placing my father in a Memory Care community was one of the hardest experiences of my life. My father's dementia had alienated so many friends – and family – and then we found solace at Charter. My father felt safe and loved. I am so humbled and grateful for the care they showed my father until the very end. – Molly McNulty, Family Member of Resident VIEW MORE TESTIMONIALS{

{We did extensive research into Assisted Living communities that also had care for dementia residents and found that Charter Senior Living of Columbia stood head and shoulders above the others. Two of the many reasons why Charter stood out were the brand-new Memory Care building and the exceptional staff. My mother-in-law is not easy to please, but she loves her home here. – Charles Davis, Family Member of Resident VIEW MORE TESTIMONIALS{
