Engaging all five senses through thoughtful, meaningful life enrichment and wellness activities is how we “love life” at Parkside Assisted Living and Memory Cottage.  Our life enrichment team specializes in memory care activities that support our resident’s mental, physical and emotional well-being. Ribbon chair exercise, balloon toss, bowling, painting, interactive cooking, lucky lotto, herb gardening, bird watching and relaxing in nature, armchair travel, costume theme parties, music, dancing, spiritual services and so much more are all part of how we “love life.”

Meaningful Connections

When a resident and their family choose Parkside Assisted Living and Memory Cottage, we want to connect with the whole family.  We begin the journey together to learn more about our resident’s interests, hobbies, culinary preferences, favorite music and entertainment. This resident-centered discovery approach allows our wellness and life enrichment teams to carefully design specialized ways to connect and inspire our residents daily.  We reference and respect nostalgia, and collaborate to create new memories for families. We offer ongoing family events and specialty talks based on collaboration with local experts as part of our Family Connections program.


Compassionate Care

Led by a team of highly trained nurses, our Wellness and Nursing Associates have deep compassion and a profound sense of responsibility towards the care and well-being of all our residents. At Parkside Assisted Living and Memory Cottage we believe there is life beyond a diagnosis. We are establishing ourselves as the Memory Care Resource for Charlotte County and have created innovative culinary methods to keep residents engaged in dining including colorful dining plates and utilizing the award winning Eat Well adaptive system. Our Culinary Team mindfully navigates dietary preferences and restrictions and creates homemade classics with thoughtful, delicious seasoning.

We invite you to join us to see our P.A.L.M.C. Principles in action.
