Market Street residents benefit from a variety of sensory stimulating programs designed to enhance the life experience of our residents. These familiar and life engaging experiences are woven into everyday life through our unique and purposeful programming environment.
The timeless charm of Market Plaza is complete with fresh flowers, calming sounds of nature, trees, and an enticing streetscape including gelato cart, newsstand and post office. Our comprehensive program offers residents choice and independence while activities such as painting, baking, or taking a yoga class encourage meaningful community interaction.
Residents relive life experiences while enjoying amazing tastes and smells of freshly ground coffee, warm bread, cinnamon rolls, or other pastries made daily in our bakery. Our sensory programming is purposefully designed to trigger memories our residents have shared with their family and friends.
The creativity and happiness that visual arts instills in our residents, reduces anxiety and elevates mood. Displays inspire seniors to express themselves and connect socially by sharing moments of joy. The Market Street Gallery, with its rotating themes, is designed to provide exhibits with varying motifs for our residents to re-experience special moments.
Salon and Spa
Market Street residents benefit from our salon and spa services both in Market Plaza as well as in their own residence. In additional to our full service salon, our care team regularly provides gentle hand massages including moist towels of varying temperatures infused with scents proven to provide therapeutic value.
Market Street Herb Garden
Each community harvests their own herb garden where residents experience the fresh aromas of sage, lavender, rosemary, thyme, mint, basil, oregano and more. Herbs are then transformed into fresh flavor through our culinary demonstrations. Residents benefit not only physically through therapeutic gardening but also emotionally as they experience a sense of purpose throughout the day.
Music and Memory
Many of our fondest memories include music. Remember how you felt dancing with your father or mother at your wedding, or the nostalgic sound of a marching band connecting you
to the big game or hometown parades. We all share a human spirit that is brought to life through the power of music.
Grounded in extensive neuroscience research about how our brains respond to music,
The MUSIC & MEMORY Program creates personalized playlists that support the recollection of important life events with detail for each resident. These musical favorites tap deep into memories that are not lost and enliven the soul, empowering our residents to feel like themselves again.
