Memory Care Daily Rhythm & Routine
Daily rhythms and routines are important to all of us and are a great source of comfort in times of change. In addition, active daily routines can support the circadian rhythm and improve residents’ moods, sleep habits, health, and energy levels. Engaging activities also minimize the risk of sundowner’s syndrome among older adults.
All the activities offered through our daily memory care and dementia care program in Roswell, GA, are designed to foster a playful spirit. Our functions are all about “fun.”
The Morning Hours
Mornings begin with a cheerful wake-up. Our Morning Welcome Crew opens the curtains and blinds, greets your loved one, and offers coffee (decaf is available, too). The crew talks about the day’s schedule using colorful charts and listens to your loved one’s interests and preferences. Residents finish breakfast and then we guide or accompany them as needed to their chosen activities.
Morning memory care activities may include:
- Accompanied walks around our beautifully landscaped grounds
- Live entertainment, music, or pet visits
- Aerobics, yoga, and other movement classes
- Meditation and mindfulness classes/groups

Afternoon memory care activities may include:
- Creative classes, including writing, drawing, painting, ceramics, handicrafts, etc.

After dinner, our social coordinator hosts games, music and sing-a-longs, and other social activities often focused on a particular period or era. These themes form part of valuable reminiscence therapy. If your loved one wants to do something else, they can choose to go to the Theater for a musical, comedy, or classic movie.
More About Programs & Meals
The Typical Day page on our website offers a simple way for you to learn more about our activities and their intended purpose as part of our memory care and dementia care services.
Memory and Dementia Care Activity Programs
Current research shows that meaningful, structured activities help focus and engage the mind while easing common symptoms of boredom and agitation. That’s why the Memory Center’s activity programs encourage residents’ social interactions in small and larger group formats. We also intentionally schedule activities between nutritious and delicious meals.
Our activities and programs are typically centered around:
- Poetry & games
- Hobby-style activities
- Sports & physical activities
- Social activities
Memory and Dementia Care Meal Plans
Our meals are research-based, too. Studies show that processed food increases the risk of dementia. Meanwhile, cutting back on processed foods and refined sugars brings many benefits. Positive dietary changes can slow cognitive decline, enhance neural function, and increase longevity in people with Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of dementia.
Our meals and snacks:
- Mostly follow an anti-inflammatory, Mediterranean Diet
- Focus on nutrient-dense, whole foods, including lots of fresh fruits and veggies and lean proteins
- Have a minimum amount of refined sugars and processed foods

We’re confident your loved one will fare better living with us than they would in an assisted living community for seniors who don’t have memory concerns. That’s because our specially planned memory care facilities are designed to help people with Alzheimer’s and dementia thrive.
