Our Caring Adult Day Care Services
Our services are built with our members’ well-being always in mind. Town Square’s unique setting, built to replicate a ‘50s town in detail, lets us offer adult day care services like no other. Thanks to our vast service options, our members and their families benefit from comprehensive care, and every day at Town Square is relaxing, engaging, beneficial, and a lot of fun.
While our services vary by location, we always offer engaging and community-based adult day care at our senior day centers, delivered using clinically proven memory care research. You can find your location or contact us to learn more about medical or integrated care services that may be available at your local Town Square facility.

Our Model of Care
In the late 20th century, trailblazing Alzheimer’s researcher George G. Glenner began to develop what he termed “reminiscence therapy”, using his clinical observations that patients with Alzheimer’s and dementia retained the best connections to their long-term memories from their late teens and 20s. This approach was begun in the Glenner Alzheimer’s Family Centers and adopted and refined by Town Square into our model of services. Everything we do is delivered in our unique setting, a faithful replica of the community landmarks of a 1950s American town.
At Town Square, we put Glenner’s groundbreaking research into action every day. Our locations, the items within them, and the activities we facilitate are carefully chosen to evoke potent sense memories, allowing our members to recreate their own connections to the past. Our staff is fully trained in dementia care and certified in conversational and social techniques that help individuals with memory difficulties to open up and engage with the world around them in a meaningful way. And we encourage peer-to-peer interaction as our members get to know each other and build supportive friendships by sharing the similar experiences that defined their young adult years.
Our Services – How They Help Our Members Thrive
Our programs are all uniquely designed by the activity coordination staff at each of our locations, with the local senior community and the wants of our members in mind. We aim to engage people of any interest and background, as well as any level of cognitive ability or memory loss, always keep our activity offerings fresh and exciting, and bring in local guests for special events and programs to give our members a one-of-a-kind experience.
While dementia and Alzheimer’s have no cure, the kind of positive remembrance and social engagement we facilitate at Town Square have proven benefits in symptom relief. Seniors with memory issues who receive reminiscence therapy have lower levels of stress and nighttime agitation, sleep better, and communicate with their family and friends better.
All of our locations are staffed by dementia care-certified professionals and are highly safe and supportive spaces for senior citizens with cognitive and other medical issues. Many Town Square facilities also offer a wide range of coordinated care options, including medical specializations (audiology, podiatry, and more), visiting nurse and physician appointments, and integrated home care and transportation. We are always working to offer as many helpful services as possible in each of our locations, and you can find your location to see details about what types of service that facility offers.
Our Storefronts and How They Work
Our senior day center locations are divided into many themed areas called storefronts, each of which is custom-built to resemble a particular iconic ‘50s locale related to the activities we hold in that area. These storefronts are key to our members’ engaging days spent with us, and our activity coordination staff help guide them from storefront to storefront, encouraging participation, socialization, and learning.
Here are just a few of the storefronts common to many of our locations:
Rosie’s Diner serves up meals and snacks to our members in a rollicking vintage diner-themed setting with a working jukebox.
The glitz and glamor of the silver screen in the ‘50s comes alive again at the Starlite Theater, where we host showings of classic films and TV shows as well as live performances, and encourage discussion and media appreciation.
We display a restored vintage ‘50s muscle car at each of our Garage storefronts, where we help our members reminisce about the unforgettable road trips with friends that they loved to take during the mid-century.
Our storefront setup allows us to hold a large variety of entertaining activities at any time – we pride ourselves on having many options to engage each and every member.
