Music, dancing and magic are all on our programming schedule, with at least two performances every week. We feature everything from kletzmer to opera, and on holidays, everyone gets a chance to shine—residents, families, and staff—as we create our very own talent show.
Minds and hearts are stimulated with weekly Judaic learning opportunities and services.
Some residents will have a field day at the Beverly Center or the Grove, while others revel in bargains at the 99¢ store. For a simple getaway, join us for a scenic ride to the beach.
An in-house weekly calendar notes upcoming events.
Armchair travelers, rejoice! No passport needed when you join us each week to learn all about a different country
You have a long and colorful history, and you’re the star. Share and preserve your life story, for yourself, your loved ones, and generations to come.
Don’t tell us you’re not a storyteller! We start with something as simple as a family anecdote, with everyone filling in the blanks. It’s a fun game to play, and just as fun to hear back.
Book lovers are in luck—Garden of Palms has its very own built-in book club. We suggest one book a month, then discuss it the following month after everyone’s had a chance to read it.
Beyond reading and telling stories, there is a singular pleasure in being read to. We use pictures and props to spin an imaginary web, designed specially for adults.
It’s such a treat to receive mail the old-fashioned way, via the post office. Our writing circle address family and friends, as well as editors and politicians—who give more weight to opinions that arrive on paper. Your vote helped hire them; let them know what you’d like them to do on the job.
Newspapers are always available, but we’ll also give you a variety of special updates, including local, national, and international news.
Our residents are an attentive audience for local speakers on health, safety, and other interesting and timely topics.
Board games aren’t just for kids, and neither are tournaments and prizes! Just show up; we’ll show you how to play. And of course anyone can join the Bingo Bonanza.
Bring out your inner artist. Join us for jewelry making, painting, watercolor, origami, ceramics, block printing and much more.
