From focused to low-key activities, based on time of day, our dynamic daily programming at Whitney Place provides structure and engagement while allowing for flexibility and personalization.
Parallel programming during group activities, for example, allows us to meet the specific needs, interests and abilities of our Tapestry residents in SALMON's assisted living communities. In this way, we account for individual differences, so that all are welcomed and fulfilled.

We encourage our staff to build trust and establish predictability by developing close relationships with their residents.

Specialized Setting

With a deep understanding of the challenges of living with Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of dementia, we've designed our Tapestry neighborhood to be accessible, comfortable and familiar. From the layout of apartments and common areas to the materials, colors and furnishings to the security measures, everything is thoughtfully chosen with our residents' needs in mind.
Our memory care residences feature personal belongings and enhancements that foster safety and autonomy. Leisure areas feature nostalgic elements for reliving memories, which can be a great source of comfort.
