Woodland Palms Assisted Living is a grand assisted living community in Tucson, Arizona. It is within perfect Pima County which is part of the Grand Canyon State.
Woodland Palms is located in beautiful Tucson – Arizona’s second largest city and county seat of Pima County. We enjoy 350+ days of sunshine every year as one of America’s sunniest cities. The Tucson area exhibits a truly picturesque atmosphere in southern Arizona – nestled where the Santa Cruz and Rillito Rivers meet. Woodland Palms is situated in the valley of the Sonoran Desert where five mountain ranges form the protection that produces the incredible sunshine and mild climate.
We provide specialized memory care services on our campus. Our wellness services and life enrichment opportunities are designed to maintain or improve the capabilities of each resident – with the emphasis on abilities and support to maintain independence.
Memory care, sometimes referred to as Alzheimer’s care, is typically a residential care setting that is designed specifically to care for those with Alzheimer’s or other dementias. Any type of dementia (and there are over 70 known types) requires special care and understanding from the caregiver.
Memory Care settings may provide physical and emotional relief as well as peace of mind for families with a memory-challenged relative. Memory care team members undergo dementia-specific training when learning how to provide assistance services.
Woodland Palms is a unique and inclusive living environment. All elders live together–interacting and supporting one another. This prevents isolation of memory care residents and encourages meaningful interactions. Elders without cognitive impairments are invited to participate or even lead memory care programming–giving them a sense of purpose.
Programming includes Validation Therapy to maintain self-esteem, and to attend to the basic human needs of each individual. In addition, special attention is paid to nutrition, physical, social, and cognitive stimulation. Our Music Makes Memories program stimulates the limbic brain, and helps each person maintain a sense of self and purpose. Our Tiny Stories project allows us to record the stories we hear each day and capture them in audio recordings. The legacy of each person is maintained. Our goal is to help each individual be the best they can be despite cognitive decline while slowing the progression of impairments.
