Social and Recreational Activities at Avalon Memory Care

Tailored Activities for Cognitive Well-being

At Avalon Memory Care, we recognize that individuals experiencing Alzheimer’s, dementia, and other cognitive impairments have unique needs when it comes to social and recreational activities. Our specially designed programs aim to enhance their quality of life and ensure that every resident can enjoy a fulfilling and engaging lifestyle.

Avalon’s team uses non-confrontational validation methods to reduce the stress that some residents may experience as a result of their condition.
