Town Square Sarasota – A Revolutionary Idea in Adult Day Care

At Town Square Sarasota, we offer our members adult day services like nowhere else can. Committed to care, safety, and fun, and backed by pioneering dementia research, our difference is apparent from the moment you step inside our center.

Everything we do is built on the principles of reminiscence therapy, which helps seniors with Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia engage with their world by recalling the memories they hold onto most strongly – those from the formative years of their teens and twenties.

Our unique activities take place in specially designed areas called storefronts, each of which is modeled after a community gathering place in 1950s small town America – the same kind of places our members would have spent the memorable years of their youth. Our staff is specially trained in techniques to engage with people who have dementia and prompt conversation and socialization, and our varied programs offer something for everyone and opportunities for making new friends and learning new things.

Our center is even more impressive in person – contact us to schedule a tour and enjoy a free ½ day on us!

Town Square Sarasota has a contract with the Veterans Health Administration that will allow qualified veterans to attend Town Square at no cost. Veterans must see their VA doctor to begin the process. Please call the team at Town Square for details.

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. 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.

Whether your loved one is experiencing the normal effects of aging or showing signs of cognitive impairment, a day at Town Square offers something for everyone.

Step Inside

Our innovative activity rooms, called storefronts, help put members at ease and encourage reminiscing by utilizing vintage design elements and décor.

Each storefront, from the Rec Center to Starlite Theater to Glenner Park, has been meticulously designed to create an immersive, nostalgic environment where memories come to the forefront and members are inspired to share stories with their peers.

Town Square transports seniors back to another time and place with the look and feel of a 1950s small town. Members can explore multiple unique activity rooms, called storefronts, all designed to spark memories of the past. 

The look and feel of Town Square Sarasota helps members feel relaxed and comfortable as they remember meals with friends at the local diner, going to the pictures to see the biggest Hollywood stars of the time, or just sitting in their living room listening to a radio program.

At Town Square Sarasota, we feature these delightful storefronts:
