For dementia care in St. Petersburg, we focus on activities to enhance general health, personal relationships, and communication skills. We concentrate on familiar abilities in order to avoid frustration when a resident is not able to accomplish an activity. We laugh, smile, and make eye contact.

Light exercise programs help residents maintain muscles and flexibility, while opportunities abound for social interaction and companionship through daily activities and events.

These gardens, which feature walking paths, nature sounds, and park benches, allow our residents to enjoy an outdoor setting in a peaceful climate controlled environment.
