Description of Dogwood Trails
Get on the fast track to a relaxing life filled with friends and fun at Dogwood Trails, where our goal is to provide an environment that is physically, mentally, spiritually and emotionally stimulating for all residents. Our assisted living and memory care community in Palestine, Texas, is tucked away amid a forest of pine and pecan trees, providing residents with a peaceful setting to enjoy the three covered patios and porches on our beautifully manicured grounds. Studio and one-bedroom floor plans offer the comforts of home with walk-in closets and wall-to-wall carpet. Our building sports high-end finishes with crown molding and the touches of a professional interior designer. Dogwood Trails is a yearly sponsor of events including Paint Palestine Pink and the Hot Pepper Festival, so our residents can be stewards in the surrounding city while also building lasting relationships during Bible studies, Monday night movies and bingo games within our community. Our convenient location provides access to plenty of shopping, dining, entertainment and medical venues in Palestine, as well as being nearly two hours from Dallas, Houston and Shreveport, Louisiana.
There are plenty of things for residents to do indoors at Dogwood Trails, too. Our inviting fireplace is an ideal spot to curl up and read a good book, while the comfortable lounge offers a place for residents to catch up on their news and entertainment or enjoy the company of others. The activity center stays quite busy with residents challenging their neighbors to friendly board or card games. Our pet-friendly community also houses a beauty shop where residents can get a new hairdo before they take advantage of our scheduled courtesy transportation to explore the city and all of its shopping, dining and entertainment venues.
Residents have access to a choice of home health agencies that provide regular personal care assessments. Our professional and courteous staff members are available 24 hours a day and work with residents and their loved ones to develop a care plan tailored to individual needs. Depending on the level of care needed, residents can get assistance with bathing, dressing and grooming, special nutritional counseling and medication reminders. Medication administration, escort and transfer assistance and incontinence care also can be obtained when needed.
