SPARK was inspired by the teachings and research of Maria Montessori and Dr. Cameron Camp and provides meaningful and life-enhancing experiences for members of our Assisted Living community.

Our unique program engages our residents with proven strategies that strive to heighten interaction, optimize cognitive skills, as well as promote a sense of purpose and accomplishment. We use tailor-fit assessment tools to evaluate each resident’s capabilities and strengths, so the program can best meet their specific needs. Residents are encouraged to participate in a wide range of activities based on their interests and abilities.

Other activities available for residents include special trips and outings, Tai Chi, pet leash braiding, pet therapy, gardening, games, Holiday celebrations, and more.

Along with our many SPARK activities, residents also love to take part in many other community initiatives, like our recent dog show fundraiser for the Alzheimer’s Association.

Our community has activities and events throughout the year that family and friends are encouraged to attend. Communication is important for families, staff, and residents. We communicate with families about upcoming events and their loved ones, sending updates to families regularly.
