Signature Programs

Rewarding Activities Designed
For The Seniors Of Today
Keeping the body and mind engaged is just as important to staying healthy as your annual physical. Simply because you no longer live at home shouldn’t mean you have to stop enjoying the exciting activities you’re passionate about – or learning new ones.

Our signature programs at Encore are innovative, always-evolving, and based on the interests of today’s seniors. They are never about filling time, but tapping into residents’ passions and creativity through robust activities, such as cooking classes, guys-only fishing trips, weekly beauty manicures, and even live concerts. Our programs are both engaging and diverse, encouraging a higher quality of life and a stronger willingness to get involved and socialize within the Encore community.


Story & Crafts

We’ve combined storytelling with crafts and cooking in our Story and Crafts program. Story and Crafts encourages creative craft projects or engaging cooking activities based on the stories read, while encouraging socialization and memory care.

Person-Centered Care Model

Encore's caregivers are specially trained to develop relationships through personalized care that help get to the heart of the matter. Our time-proven philosophy puts the resident first by getting to know them in a way that's authentic, productive, and meaningful.

Music & Memory

Music soothes the soul, is therapeutic for the mind, and supports memory function. The nationally recognized program, Music and Memory, offers a personalized music system using custom playlists to enhance quality of life, and improve health and well-being.

Joy Rides

At Encore, Joy Rides offer residents a breath of fresh air through fun-filled group outings twice a month. At Encore, a change in scenery or new experience is just a short joy ride away. When residents participate in Joy Rides, they connect with the environment around them and their spirits are uplifted.

Remember When

Remember When promotes the sharing of personal stories in a group setting to spur resident memories. By encouraging themed-discussions around historical events in residents’ lives, they spend time with friends and experience improved memory function.

Kitchen Traditions

Kitchen Traditions encourages the sharing and learning of family-favorite recipes in a fun-spirited cooking class to support cultural connections, social bonds, and memory care. Whether a beginner or seasoned chef, residents meet regularly to cook cherished recipes, tell stories, and share memories in the kitchen.

Tech Connect

Bringing stimulating life experiences and adventurous activities to our residents is why we created Tech Connect. Through the wonders of technology and power of creativity, connecting with others has never been so easy or so much fun.
