Palo Alto Commons Description

Welcome to Palo Alto Commons

Palo Alto Commons has earned a reputation as the leader in senior assisted living in the Bay Area and on the Peninsula. Independently owned and located in Palo Alto since 1990, our community provides premier assisted living, Alzheimer’s and dementia care and exclusive, specialized higher levels of care in a beautiful home-like environment.

Our gracious residential community offers flexible personal care options, engaging activity programs, and fresh and delicious meals by a dedicated and caring staff. We believe in finding joy at every stage of life, and in lending a helping hand with respect and a smile. You’ll find just the right amount of help with the perfect blend of freedom and security.

Assisted Living

Features fine apartment living with an abundance of hotel-like amenities in a beautiful environment. Choose Independent Living, or Assisted Living, which offers six levels of personal care designed to meet each resident’s specific needs.

Assisted Living

The Palo Alto Commons Assisted Living concept is simple. Each resident enjoys the comfort of a private apartment surrounded by favorite furnishings and treasures, with the warmth and hospitality of the gracious living services available within our residential community. The trained and friendly Palo Alto Commons staff is always available to lend a helping hand when needed. Residents may live independently, while enjoying our outstanding amenities and social & dining opportunities. Or, they may take advantage of the outstanding care services offered in our premier Assisted Living program.

Palo Alto Commons emphasizes flexibility and outstanding quality of care for each resident. We develop a Personalized Care Plan in which each resident’s needs are carefully assessed to determine the care options that best suit his/her needs. As a result, there is no “one size fits all” approach to resident care. The combined elements of personalized assistance and the privacy of one’s own apartment home promote independence and vitality.

In Assisted Living, we offer assistance with all Activities of Daily Living (ADLs) as well as licensed nurse services. With 24-hour licensed nurses and trained care staff, residents and their families enjoy peace of mind knowing that a skilled and caring staff is always at hand.

Meadow Wing

Features a specialized and dignified program for residents with Alzheimer’s Disease and dementia. Meadow Wing provides a full daily schedule of engaging and meaningful activities in a secure, friendly, and home-like environment.

Meadow Wing
A Compassionate Program for Residents with Alzheimer’s Disease and Dementia

The Meadow Wing at Palo Alto Commons is a specialized and dignified program for residents with Alzheimer’s Disease and dementia. The Meadow Wing provides a full daily schedule of engaging and meaningful activities in a secure, friendly, and home-like environment.

Every aspect of the Meadow Wing at Palo Alto Commons is designed to create a safe and comfortable atmosphere. The charming accommodations are spacious and cheerful, and many apartments feature views of lovely gardens and outdoor pathways.

All assistance with Activities of Daily Living (ADLs) and many specialized licensed nurse services are included in the monthly Meadow Wing fee. We develop a Personalized Care Plan, tailored toward each resident’s individual needs.

Here, we feature Friendship Living: shared living accommodations where residents share the simple joys of life’s daily routine. Private apartment residences are available as well. Display of personal memorabilia and photos is encouraged, as is decorating each private space with favorite furnishings and treasures. Accented with distinctive colors and visual cues to reassure residents, the activities area and dining rooms are lovely spaces for meaningful gatherings and programs. The unobtrusive security system also ensures a restraint-free, safe environment.
Staff Training

At the heart of daily life at the Meadow Wing is our specially trained staff. Each and every member goes through a rigorous instruction program to understand Alzheimer’s Disease and dementia. A licensed nurse supervises the Meadow Wing program as well as provides diabetes and oxygen management and other services. More importantly, each staff member is trained to interact with residents in a manner that helps alleviate agitation, anger and anxiety. Through formal classroom instruction and direct interaction with residents, our staff learns how to provide care and stimulation with compassion and a smile. The focus of our instructional training is the application of a personalized, supportive and non-judgmental response to resident behaviors, using skill and warmth in place of medication and restraint. The Meadow Wing is staffed 24 hours each day with a staff-to-resident ratio that far exceeds federal and state regulatory standards.
Family Services

In recognition that the resident is not the only person affected by Alzheimer’s Disease and dementia, an integral part of our program involves helping family members with their own challenges. Family support is extended by our staff through our family support groups. In addition, the staff of the Meadow Wing serves as a resource to families in order to strengthen care received by the residents. Each family is invited to participate in the development of the care plan and to continue as an important part of the life of their loved one.
