About Dogwood Trails Assisted Living and Memory Care.

Dogwood Trails is an Assisted Living & Memory Care community that provides exceptional person-centered care to residents.

An incredibly peaceful and scenic environment awaits your loved one as our community is located on the outskirts of town and is surrounded by large pecan and oak trees. Although it is serene onsite, the historic downtown Palestine area is just a short drive away. Your loved one is sure to enjoy the vibrant community feeling and ease of access to important nearby landmarks.

While the location is superb, providing exceptional caregiving services to senior citizens with memory illness or who need ADL assistance remains our top objective. Our care partners provide an immersive, engaging experience for these individuals through our award-winning SPARK program. It’s based around four essential keys to a life well-lived: Community Contribution, Inclusion & Belonging, Lifelong Learning, and Purpose.

You and your family will see parts of this program for yourself and how it will impact your loved one’s life during a free tour and consultation. We’ll work closely with you to ensure your loved one’s transition is as smooth as possible. Once they are all moved in, the fun begins!

Our Lifestyle Directors schedule numerous social activities each week to keep things fresh and exciting. We host after-dinner dominoes, Wine Down Wednesdays, Bingo nights, and much more. Your loved one will also embark on a community field trip a couple times per year to see the beautiful surrounding area.

We believe your loved one’s stay in a memory care community should be enjoyable and purposeful. Schedule a consultation with a Dogwood Trails representative today to see the community’s magic yourself!

Mind, Body & Soul
  • Occupational, Physical, and Speech Therapy

Healthy living includes the mind, body, and spirit, and our caregivers work every day to help residents live a healthy lifestyle. 

Our community includes daily exercise classes with other residents so they can stay fit and limber. And when they just want to get the blood flowing, we offer abundant outdoor opportunities for a brisk walk through the lovely surrounding area. 

Additionally, Lifelong Learning – as part of our signature SPARK program – provides residents with a source of continued growth. They may hear from guest speakers, attend small and large group crafts, or engage in painting programs and interactive lectures. These programs are essential for stimulating the mind as well as the body. 

Religion is essential to many of our staff and residents – and we’re happy to welcome all denominations. We offer dedicated space for various services, gatherings, and other interests to review, read, sing, discuss, or otherwise fulfill your desire to seek or pursue a warm and familiar experience.

To say that the Staff is outstanding would be an understatement, as they have gone above and beyond the call of duty to provide for every need and request that we have presented them with. In addition, every question has been answered honestly and straightforward.
