Town Square provides a safe, comforting, and delightful environment where seniors can spend the day while family members are at work, running errands, or taking a much-needed break from daily routines.
Our innovative centers are designed to put members at ease and spark memories of the past by featuring a variety of nostalgic 1950s-themed activity rooms called storefronts.
Throughout the day, members take part in a wide range of engaging activities with a focus on enjoying favorite pastimes, reminiscing with friends, and developing new interests. This can include shooting pool with friends in the Game Room, arranging flowers in Dottie’s Garden Shop, getting together for book club in the Library, or playing lawn games in Glenner Park.
The monthly calendar includes a variety of special events, including themed celebrations, visiting entertainment, guest speakers, music, gentle exercise, cognitive stimulation, creative expression, and so much more. Members end the day feeling a sense of accomplishment, purpose, and community.
Experts in Senior Care
All staff members receive continuous and extensive training on compassionate senior care methods, including expert-developed Alzheimer’s and dementia care, reminiscing techniques, and how to lead engaging, inclusive, and enjoyable activities for all
A Rewarding Experience
A day at Town Square is designed to include the essential categories of activities that help people feel valued and purposeful (productive, leisure, restorative, and self-care and wellness). This well-rounded experience provides members with a sense of accomplishment and pride at the end of the day.
Health & Safety
The health and safety of our members and staff is always our top priority. Town Square offers an elder-friendly and accessible environment with rigorous cleaning standards determined by state and national guidelines. In addition, an RN is on staff to assess members’ needs and assist with medical issues.
Connecting Through Stories
A primary focus of everything we do at Town Square, from the design of the center to our proprietary activities to our staff training, revolves around encouraging members to reminisce and share stories about their past. We believe that everyone has a story to tell and everyone’s story matters. In fact, hearing members share their life experiences is our favorite part of spending time at Town Square!
Reminiscing is an important part of the day at Town Square because it allows members to experience the past through thoughtfully planned activities supported by the unique environment. Our Program Assistants are trained to provide conversation prompts that help members open up and feel comfortable reminiscing about their past. The ability to recall and reflect on the past helps seniors remember who they used to be in order to help them define their identity in the current moment.
Town Square has been the perfect solution for my mother. She looks forward to the time she spends there during the day and enjoys the friends she’s made.
