Welcome Home to Dogwood Trails Assisted Living and Memory Care

Dogwood Trails is a premier Assisted Living and Memory Care community located in Palestine, Texas that serves families residing in Anderson, Smith, Freestone, Henderson, Cherokee, Limestone and Houston counties. No matter where they have lived before, we’d be honored to have your loved one call Dogwood Trails home.

Located in the Piney Woods, Palestine has a population of just over 57,000 residents. Our community is approximately equidistant from Dallas, Houston, and Shreveport. The area is well known for its natural features, particularly during the dogwood and magnolia tree blooming season. There are also over 20 historically significant buildings in and around the city, recognized by the National Register of Historic Places. There are many parks, museums and walking paths for everyone to enjoy.

Dogwood Trails provides the best Assisted Living and Memory Care services in the region. Whether your loved one need some extra help managing their activities of daily living (ADL’s) or coping with the effects of dementia or Alzheimer’s, our highly experienced and compassionate staff treats every resident with the respect and dignity that they deserve. Our individualized services are designed to meet our residents’ physical, emotional and spiritual needs every day.

We truly understand that the decision making process of choosing the right Assisted Living or Memory Care community can be complex and stressful. Our team is here to help along every step of the way.

Dogwood Trails has an amazing leadership team that includes an executive director, Caycie, who is also an RN with over 20 years of geriatric experience. Diane, our health services director, is an RN with over 35 years in the nursing field. Sharyn, our lifestyle director has previous experience managing the YMCA and is a certified activities coordinator. Linda, our dietary director has over 20 years of culinary experience and is also a certified food safety manager by the state of Texas.

Prior to admission, each resident is assessed by a nurse who will create an appropriate plan of care designed to meet all of their needs. In conjunction with the resident’s family and physician, our care plan is developed to ensure safety and well-being. If medication management is needed, our health service director and resident care coordinator works with the resident’s physician to ensure proper prescription management. Our staff works closely with the medical team to help monitor and adjust medication as needed.

Dogwood Trails sits back on the edge of town among 5 acres of beautiful, towering pecan and oak trees. Our country setting creates an environment where our residents feel relaxed, comfortable and at home. We are well known for our smiles and warm atmosphere.

Our beautiful property was constructed in 2005, with the Memory Care section being added a few years later. Recent remodeling efforts offers our residents an up to date and beautiful atmosphere.

Dogwood Trails offers lovely and spacious assisted living apartments that feature a kitchenette and built in linen storage. Large bathrooms and roll in showers make daily bathing activities much easier. We also offer private and companion suite memory care apartments. Companion suites offer each resident their own private room with a door to the hallway and a Jack-n-Jill shared bathroom.

The common areas at Dogwood Trails are spacious, warm and inviting. Our residents enjoy visiting with each other and participating in a wide variety of activities and social gatherings.

Our highly experienced chef creates three delicious meals a day and offers a variety of options for our community to enjoy in our restaurant style dining room. Our menu features traditional Thanksgiving, Christmas, Easter, and St. Patrick’s Day meals, as well as local favorites like fried fish on Fridays, delicious casseroles and homemade desserts.
