We've combined our 35+ years of experience in caring for people with Alzheimer's Dementia with extensive research touring leading Memory Care providers & Children's Museums throughout the country to create the innovative Palace Star Memory Care program at The New
"Life Stations" is a method implemented in our Memory Care, designed to spark memories for our residents. The interactive stations encourage residents to touch, feel, use and share the items that make up each life station.
Life Stations include what our residents' typical day may have consisted of. From coffee in the morning, checking the mail and caring for young children. Life stations are dynamic and reflect the needs and historical past of our residents.
Cuddly Pet Therapy
Over 70% of people have had a pet during their lives. For those Memory Care residents who are animal lovers, we offer Simulated Pet Therapy where residents nurture and interact with life-like mechanical pets.
This therapy provides a soothing and relaxing environment for the residents and brings out their loving and caring instincts.
The Palace Gardens has created a unique Multi-Sensory Room which provides a much needed, tranquil refuge for those residents experiencing anxiety and stress. Our residents relax in this quiet environment while enjoying the myriad of lava lamps and other sensory touchpoints geared to those with Alzheimer's & Dementia.
Memory Care Plaza
Our beautiful and functional Memory Care Plaza is located adjacent to the Ice Cream Parlor and The Activities Rooms. The highlight of this space is our Nature Wall - an area we created which shows various scenes of nature from throughout the world. The TVs are set within frames, giving the appearance of the looking through an actual window at the scenery. From picturesque beaches, to majestic birds flying, to soaring mountain vistas and sunsets; residents are captivated by our Nature Wall.
