Kingston Residence of Hickory practices the Teepa Snow Senior GEM’s® Level activities for our Assisted Living and Memory Care residents.

Our activity offerings far exceed those of other communities in our area where we honor resident choice and promote independence. With three full-time Activity Staff members, we are able to plan and coordinate a wide variety of activities for all our residents. Many residents enjoy our lunch outings and mystery rides, while others participate in bingo, word games, Songbirds, and daily exercise. We recognize the challenges the aging process has for some residents who still want to stay active. Therefore, to ensure all residents are kept active and stimulated, we have a dedicated staff member with advanced dementia training who provides individualized and small group activities tailored toward one’s cognitive abilities.
