Situated in the heart of Lower Merion, Symphony Square at Bala is a suburban senior living community located near Lankenau Medical Center, Bryn Mawr Hospital, Jefferson University Hospital and HUP as well as Bala Cynwyd Shopping Center , King of Prussia Mall, Fairmount Park and Philadelphia Museum of Art. Wake up every day in a safe, intentionally designed living space. We tend to the cooking, housekeeping and home maintenance so you can participate in social, cultural and exercise programs including chef demonstrations, yoga for balance and painting classes. Choose from a menu of seasonal, nutritious chef-prepared dishes in our beautiful dining room.

Enjoy discreet, supportive care, a maintenance-free lifestyle including scheduled transportation, and boutique amenities. Spend every day living fully and experiencing greater well-being.


Our Philosophy

We believe a thoughtfully designed environment filled with good neighbors and a caring staff, along with nutritious food, accessible exercise programs and opportunities to connect and engage every day, are the right combination for optimal living.  

For older people living alone, these important elements can become harder to maintain – making home a challenging, unsafe, even lonely place to be.  

That’s why we offer a community for older people where living is easier, surroundings are safer – and together is better. Learn more

The love we feel for our Mom prompted my sister & I to transition her from a place that wasn't adequately meeting her needs to Symphony Square. There's a definite contrast between where Mom was versus the feeling of community that Symphony Square... exudes. Susan (Dir of Sales & Marketing), Claudette (Dir of Nursing) and other staff considered Mom's individualized needs when planning for her care. We also noted the large number of staff who have been @ Symphony Square for many years, which allows residents to feel more secure versus a community where staff and contractors are constantly shifting in and out. In addtion, the building's layout and the way activities are incorporated throughout the day lends itself to engagement and interaction amongst the residents. Mom shared, "I'm glad I'm meeting people that I have something in common with. I'm also impressed with the staff becasue they're pleasant and patient." When our 94 year old Mom is happy, our family is happy. What a blessing to be part of the Symphony Square Community! Wish we'd discovered it years more

Theresa and her staff in Memory Care provided such peace of mind to our family knowing my Mom was in the best place with amazing care. We will be forever grateful to everyone including the sweet residents.

Since arriving at Symphony Square a month ago, Mom is a younger version of herself. She is active, engaged in daily activities and best of her, she has made friends. This boutique facility is led by the warm and wonderful Adrienne Stevens who knows... every resident and is present in the building, talking to the residents at mealtimes and during activities. Claudette, Director of Nursing, makes sure mom's medical needs are met. I no longer need to be on top of everything- Claudette has it covered. Every staff member I have met at Symphony knows my mom (and me!) and works to make her life better.My sister and I were so exhausted from worrying about her care and her well-being. Now we can relax. We couldn't be happier!read more

We looked at a dozen options for a caring home for my grandmother and are so glad we chose symphony square. The staff go above and beyond on a daily basis. They stay in close contact with us and have made the time not only to get to know my grand... mother personally, but to get to know our family. It’s not a huge place, which is great because she gets a lot of personal attention, especially now that she is in memory care. It can be a tough decision and adjustment to move a loved one into assisted living. Symphony square has helped us with that transition and we are very more

I cannot say enough great things about the team at Symphony Square. My father has been a resident in Memory Care for the last 18+ months. The staff members are so kind and patient and they are always coming up with new ways to engage the... residents. Theresa is a dedicated and inspiring leader. She does a great job communicating with my family so we feel informed and empowered about any developments with my dad.Most importantly, everyone really cares about the health and happiness of the residents. There is a lot of personal attention and quality time with each more

We love Symphony Square in Bala Cynwyd for our 93 year old Mom. As you walk in, you are greeted with warmth and light heartedness. The main areas are pleasant and inviting. The daily activities and celebrations are engaging. Best of all, the staff... from director on down is attentive and caring. Hazel, the activity director, is the best! Covid protections are well maintained. We feel Mom is safe and well-cared more
