WELCOME TO TOWN SQUARE SANDY SPRINGS!

Memory care & rEMINISCENCE THERAPY

Town Square Sandy Springs provides adult day care services based on reminiscence therapy. This unique approach involves recalling past events in order to find comfort in the present day. All our activities are based on reminiscing, and the design of our facility is inspired by days gone by. As cherished memories rise to the surface, our members are likely to communicate more and experience better mental and emotional outcomes.

Reminiscence therapy started in the 1960s, when psychiatrists discovered the therapeutic value of memories. Early work in this field was developed by George G. Glenner at the Alzheimer’s Family Center. When people are reminded of the good old days, they’re more likely to find value and purpose in their daily life.

Reminiscence therapy uses the five senses to tap into distant memories. This can be done through numerous activities, such as storytelling, listening to music, and doing arts and crafts. This gives people with dementia an opportunity to express themselves, share their stories, and make social connections with their peers.

Through the wonders of reminiscing, our adult day care at Sandy Springs helps people to live a happy life — one day at a time.
