The Palms property includes a gorgeous acreage of wildlife sanctuary which sits behind our back patio and social walkway area, and it is rife with birds and wildlife alike for the viewing enjoyment of our residents. Binoculars anyone?
Engaging in this activity provides cognitive stimulation and offers numerous mental health benefits. By identifying birds by sight, sound, and name, seniors can improve their memory recall skills.
