Signature & Memory Support Programs
To us, helping seniors get more out of life starts with giving them more opportunities to be active, to engage, to learn, and to have fun each day through programs and experiences designed just for them. Explore the programs available to our residents.
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.
ShapeMaster® exercise machines provide residents with an easy, comfortable, and safe fitness routine. Residents have shared that after two months of regular use with the ShapeMaster® machines they experiences positive changes, including increased stability and strength. Both they and their children have shared how this has reduced their fears about falls.
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.
BikeAround features an innovative approach to holistic wellness. From the cognitive benefits created by reminiscing to the physical benefits of moving the bike’s pedals, anyone who jumps on this modified version of a stationary bike will have a one-of-a-kind experience.
Rock Steady Boxing
Rock Steady Boxing gives people with Parkinson’s disease hope by improving their quality of life through a non-contact boxing based fitness curriculum.

Laughter Yoga® is a fun way to increase blood flow and improve breathing while you intentionally laugh in a group without relying on humor or jokes. The benefits of a 30-minute session may decrease stress, reduce blood pressure, and help ease anxiety. Plus, it's fun to watch how unintentional laughter becomes genuine joy and laughter for those who participate. Open to all ages and all skill levels.
Memory Support Programs
There might not yet be a medical treatment to ease the suffering from Alzheimer’s disease or other forms of dementia, however, we know how to treat the soul. If for only a few minutes at a time, memory care services center on universal soul food: the convergence of music, nostalgia, purpose, and mindfulness.
We invite you to experience the magic of Senior Star’s memory support programs.
Music and 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.
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.
There is a lifetime of joy to be found in the simple moments of everyday living. Senior Star brings this idea to life by celebrating the moments that create purpose and fulfillment in the lives of residents. It is a Senior Star way of life known as Purposeful Moments®.
Memory Support 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.
Delay the Disease
OhioHealth Delay the Disease™ is an evidenced-based fitness program designed to optimize physical function and help delay the progression of symptoms associated with Parkinson’s disease. This wellness program is an important part of OhioHealth’s care continuum of neurologists and expert therapists working together to address the impairments associated with Parkinson’s disease.
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.
