Common Areas and Special Features:

It is said that the mind and the body are intimately connected. Thoughts and feelings can be affected by the very movements that our brains tell us to make in the first place. This complex relationship compels us to provide Senior Star residents with a wide variety of programs that we hope will peak individual interests, inspire a sense of purpose, and engage holistic health and well-being.

Do you ever wonder what it would feel like to awake refreshed in the morning after experiencing a night of sound sleeping? We are all so busy with life that it’s hard to quiet our minds at night—and when you have finding senior living care for a loved one, it can be even harder to sleep.

At Senior Star at Elmore Place, we recognize the importance of sound sleep for you and your family. We’ve developed Signature Services to help residents and families check those tasks off your to-do list. Let us help you have sweet dreams knowing mom and dad are well cared for with our senior living services and activities, so when you visit you can focus on spending quality time together making memories.

We believe providing service with excellence starts by keeping one question top of mind at all times: “What can I do for Marie today that would ease her mind?” We focus on identifying the areas in life where a resident, like Marie, might appreciate having a little less worry with a little more help, and we extend a hand.

Making sure your mom is comfortable in her home really is the reason Senior Star associates arrive to work each day with a smile. More than the many senior living services we provide—the daily tasks that we must accomplish, welcoming guests through our doors, keeping up our beautiful community surroundings—the thing that brings us the most pleasure is serving your mom.

Why? Because we see how a resident’s happiness and good health blossoms through quality senior care and quality time spent with those she loves. Our Signature Services were developed to allow us to take care of things for your mom so that you can simply enjoy your time together.

The way we see it, we are an extension of family to every resident who resides with us. And we are delighted to do what we can to help your mom or dad sleep a little better at night; perhaps, you will sleep a little better too.

Concierge Services—How can our senior living services help you? Imagine eliminating the stress of travel, deliveries, and errands from your daily routine while still enjoying the benefits of the destination. Concierge services make this a reality for all residents. Specialized concierge services include arranging room service, coordinating professional appointments, and scheduling transportation.

Dakim® BrainFitness—It is surprising to some as they pass our Lifelong Learning Center to see a resident playing a trivia video game. However, residents appreciate that Dakim® BrainFitness machines provide fun cognitive stimulation through interactive games designed for seniors and find it a very engaging way to exercise their brains.

At 85 years young, Jerry has made a personal commitment to keeping his brain healthy. He and a group of men have a club they call The Brainiacs. They exercise, share brain power foods and menus with our chef, and they don’t miss their four days a week at Dakim.

Study after study reveals that lifestyle choices support important cognitive functions like memory and focus. A quick Internet search on “brain health” will lead to a plethora of information on the benefits of keeping your mind active and ways to help do just that.

Books, crossword puzzles, riddles, the list goes on. We believe it is important to invest in innovations that provide engaging options for residents to experience brain fitness activities, like our Dakim® BrainFitness machines.

Dakim is an entirely different approach to brain training. Dakim’s patented protocol employs more than one hundred different sophisticated, scientifically-based, and intellectually-challenging cognitive exercise types—and thousands of individual exercises—to provide an ever-changing brain-training experience.

We believe in fostering meaningful and purposeful experiences for residents every day. Our Dakim machines feature videos, stunning graphics, music, and even a sense of humor. And good humor certainly abounds within the walls of our community, bustling with conversations among members of the greatest generation—some of the wittiest people you’ll ever meet.

Zumba Gold®—Get moving with this fun fitness program designed for active older adults. Great music and dancing—who said exercise can’t be fun? Zumba Gold® is specially designed for the older adult and engages everyone who passes by a session. Participants enjoy the combination of Latin-inspired and international dance rhythms and easy, exhilarating movements. Zumba Gold® is all about moving to the music—but we don’t emphasize “proper” dance and exercise techniques. Instead we focus on experiencing motion, breathing, and engagement in a manner that is comfortable to our own unique body.

Through zesty Latin-inspired music and international dance rhythms, residents do their own version of the salsa, merengue, cumbia, and reggaeton led by our certified Zumba Gold® instructor. Modified moves and pacing suit the needs and abilities of each person, whether they are a first-time participant or a regular attendee. Through this program, residents are afforded the freedom to connect with their thoughts and feelings and express themselves without the use of language. It’s a shared experience, right in the comfort of home.

Imagine your mother, whose declining muscle strength and agility has you concerned. Residents in similar conditions have shared that after two months of regular use they had positive changes including increased stability and strength. Both they and their children have shared how this has reduced their fears about falls. ShapeMaster® exercise machines provide residents with an easy, comfortable, and safe fitness routine.

ShapeMaster®—Senior specific workout machines that help increase movement and flexibility. There’s nothing like the feeling of being wrapped up in your mother’s arms. No matter how old you are, those arms work night and day to celebrate your happy moments and comfort your sad times. Providing strength, encouragement, and comfort when needed.

Your mom’s arms are important, as is her heart. She has an easy and comfortable way to take good care of both of them using our ShapeMaster® exercise equipment. Each machine is specially designed using power-assistance providing gentle movement of the main muscle groups. The equipment can be used passively or actively, with as much or as little effort as she sees fit.

Input from our residents is sought frequently as we introduce new services and programs. Senior Star residents were chosen to participate in a study conducted by Oklahoma State University to test six power assisted ShapeMaster® machines. The residents participated in 12 weeks of supervised training using the machines, which are designed to provide a full body workout that can potentially reduce the possibility of injury to the muscles, joints, and ligaments with low impact resistance training.

The study results showed tremendous benefits including a significant improvement in muscle strength of between 24% and 50%, mobility and agility increased by 22%, and balance improved by 33%.

In general, the benefits of exercise are many from maintaining independence, reducing the risk of falls and fracturing bones to reducing the risk of heart disease, high blood pressure, cancer, and diabetes. Even mental health is affected because exercise reduces symptoms of anxiety and depression and fosters improvements in mood and feelings of well-being. Plus, after using our ShapeMaster® equipment, your mom or dad just might hug you a little tighter.

Laughter Yoga®—Did you know there are health benefits to laughing? Relieve your stress and open your mind to the benefits of breathing and laughing with friends.

Stroll down the halls of our community on a Saturday morning and you might witness residents clapping and calling out to one another, “Very good, very good, yay!” as they burst out in laughter.

These are special words that are spoken as part of our Laughter Yoga® program. Through Laughter Yoga® anyone can laugh for no reason without relying on humor or jokes. Initiated in 1995 by Dr. Madan Kataria, a physician from Mumbai, India. Laughter Yoga® combines unconditional laughter with yogic breathing and is simulated in a group as a body exercise.

Our certified Laughter Yoga instructor leads participants through the program, based on the scientific fact that the body cannot distinguish between fake and real laughter…the same physiological and psychological benefits are achieved.

Laughter Yoga triggers body endorphins, releases stress, decreases blood pressure, and boosts the immune system. Residents experience an increase in joy within their lives while decreasing stress levels, blood pressure, and anxiety. Describing the benefits of our Laughter Yoga program can be easily summed up in a few words: “very good, very good, yay!”

There might not yet be a medical treatment to ease the suffering from Alzheimer’s disease or forms of dementia; however, we know how to treat the soul. If for only a few minutes at a time, memory care programs center on universal soul food—the convergence of music, nostalgia, purpose, and mindfulness.

MUSIC & MEMORY™—Music wields remarkable power. It has the power to transcend language and—for moments at a time—music can even transcend Alzheimer’s disease. Experience our unique memory care activities and programs.

We’ve all experienced it. Open grandmother’s jewelry box and a waft of her perfume transports you to childhood. Flip to a radio station to hear a few seconds of “Oh What a Night”—suddenly, you’re fondly recalling your Senior Prom.

Our memory and senses move alongside one another with effortless harmony. Like a waltz, sense takes the lead, and memory follows suit. And therein lies the beauty and magic of the MUSIC & MEMORY? dance. We know today that music has the incredible power to transcend the symptoms of dementia and Alzheimer’s disease. This is because our brains are hard-wired to connect music with long-term memory.

Every day at Elmore Place, residents don headphones and listen to customized iPod playlists, created by their loved ones. Once the headphones hit their ears—you’ll have to see it to believe it—residents come alive, brimming with joy and a renewed sense of self. For those suffering from the daily hardships of dementia or Alzheimer’s, this program offers a poignant reprieve.

Destination Stations®—What is a day without the experience of purpose? We know that living a day filled with meaningful activity is of the utmost importance for those living with Alzheimer’s disease or dementia. We’ve designed our memory care programs and community so that residents are encouraged to become involved in doing. Purpose is around every turn.

Our life experiences shape the person we are today. Whether a stay-at-home mom, a journalist, a gardener, or a machinist—our days are always defined by how we spend them. At Senior Star, we recognize that every action in our day serves a purpose. For a mother at home with her children, grocery shopping is important. For a father who works in the garage, using tools and fixing things brings him fulfillment.

From making our beds in the morning to helping a neighbor, Senior Star has built that sense of purpose into the designs of our building—especially in our innovative approach to memory care.

For those living with Alzheimer’s disease or symptoms of dementia, living with purpose is of utmost importance. So, we created Destination Programming® and Destination Stations®.

What is a Destination Station®? A Destination Station is a place that invites participation in meaningful activity. For a resident who dedicated her young life to motherhood, grocery-shopping at the Elmore Place Country Store allows for reminiscing on past grocery trips, and is a way for important movement that may help to improve range of motion—lifting her arm to reach a can on the shelf and place it in her cart.

For a “fix-it” man, tinkering with tools at a station not only encourages a purposeful practice but provides a wonderful sensory experience for dad to feel the Allen wrench in his left hand, while steadying washers and a screw in his right hand.

To reach a destination means that you are traveling with intention. Destination Stations are life giving—and this life comes in the form of many purposeful moments strung together within an Elmore Place resident’s day.

Snoezelen® Multi-Sensory Environment—A place where control is in the resident's hands, Snoezelen helps to charge the senses and may reduce anxiety or provide stimulation for those needing Alzheimer’s or dementia care.

We live in an age where Alzheimer’s disease research is ever evolving—we know more today about the disease than we did yesterday. So, at Elmore Place, we recognize the importance of constantly embracing new innovations in memory care.

The Snoezelen® Multi-Sensory Environment is a safe, welcoming room where residents can go to enjoy gentle stimulation of the primary senses. Filled with all things soothing—lights, sounds, scents, textures, and comfortable furniture—the relaxing atmosphere offers residents a respite from challenges, confusion, and agitation. This immersive experience provides an outlet for exploration and is an excellent way to recharge and relax.

The Snoezelen Multi-Sensory Environment is a program created by two Dutch therapists, Snoezelen’s namesake comes from combining the words “snuffelen,” meaning to seek and explore, and “doezelen,” meaning to relax. And the program accomplishes just this—a peaceful opportunity for relaxation.

The results show that it is improving quality of life for those living with Alzheimer’s disease or dementia all over the world. The environment is one you truly have to see to believe in order to understand the amazing benefits—Snoezelen provides a magical experience to those suffering from dementia.

Memory Care Backyard—Set in the safety of an enclosed courtyard, a resident may enjoy the fragrance and taste of food fresh from the grill, the soothing sound of bubbling water, or the pleasure of working in raised flower beds along with all of the memories these may evoke. Our memory support services aid the mind and body.

Have you ever flipped through an old photo album and instantly felt a sense of fond nostalgia? For people living with Alzheimer’s disease or symptoms of dementia, reminiscing is an especially powerful experience. Our Memory care backyard provides opportunities for resident memories to be sparked by the joy of experiencing many of the pleasures of the outdoors.

Imagine coming to visit mom and finding her in the backyard—hanging sweet smelling, freshly washed linens on the line. Do you remember what it was like when you were young and the two of you did so on a hot summer’s day? You join her, encouraging her to share stories of when she taught her daughter to hang clothes, sharing a memory you thought was long forgotten but that awakens that special bond between the two of you.

You walk arm in arm past the garden bed as a resident whistles while he happily pulls weeds, the fragrance of the lavender providing a sense of calm. You take a seat together enjoying the sound of bubbling water, the soft whistle a nice punctuation. There is no need for words; the joy of being together, steeped in pleasant memories brings peace and joy to you both.

We created a beautiful backyard in our courtyard, readily accessible to all Elmore Place memory care residents. Equally important is the opportunity to experience the beauty of nature at any time. The Backyard has all of the components of a nostalgic and beautiful haven. Residents are welcome to enjoy backyard barbecues and family get togethers safely in the fresh air and sunshine. The bird house and feeder offer communion with nature; our frequent visiting sparrows and starlings have quickly become favored friends. There are many other attributes to the backyard—from a shade trellis to a meditation bench to an old-fashioned mailbox—each component of the backyard offers feelings of serenity, nostalgia, and a sense of purpose.

We also have a swimming pool. We welcome your pet, and our community has a dog park!


We offer scheduled transportation 7 days/week for shopping, appointments, group activities, and church services. We also have garages and storage space available for an extra fee.
