Signature Programs

Encore Is Full Of Life
Keeping the body and mind active is just as vital to staying healthy as your annual physical. Simply because you no longer live at home shouldn’t mean you have to stop doing the activities you’re passionate about – or learning new ones.


Our signature programs at Encore are not about filling time, but tapping into residents’ passions and personalities through robust activities, such as gardening, volunteering with children, and even live concerts. These exciting and diverse programs encourage a higher quality of life and a stronger willingness to get involved and socialize within the Encore community.

Executive Chef

One of the best things about life is indulging in delicious, local food. At Encore, our residents never have to stop indulging. They savor culinary works of art with bold flavor made from fresh and locally-sourced ingredients, inspired by our talented Executive Chef Reynold.

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 philosophy involves getting to know the resident in a way that’s meaningful and builds trust.

Pet & Plant Therapy

At Encore, our residents enjoy improved social interaction, mental engagement, and overall well-being from our innovative pet and plant therapies. Our residents experience gardening and pet-companionship that’s authentic and engaging.

Adopt a Grandparent

Encore's Adopt a Grandparent program meets weekly with children from the Boys and Girls Club for interactive, fun group activities to encourage social engagement, laughter, and meaningful relationships. When the children are at Encore, we are a more vibrant community.


GriefShare is a trusted support community where residents can share stories of loss and learn about tools for healthy grieving. In partnership with and a local church, we provide a safe environment on-site that makes grieving easier for those with dementia-related symptoms.

Building Bridges

Building Bridges is a partnership with Malvern Elementary School and First Baptist Children’s Center to bring children and our residents together in a fun-filled, mutually beneficial social environment. This innovative intergenerational program encourages learning and social interactions to help bridge the gap between the two groups.
