Our perspective

Sagecare 147 Elder Street brings to bear all the latest innovations and approaches in memory care building design and compassionate care, in a setting focused solely on dementia care. It’s a beautiful building both inside and out, and there’s also delicacy in the care given to residents here, administered by devoted staff, specially prepared and trained to help them. Over 20 years of experience is brought to bear in every nuance of living here.

For both families and those suffering from Alzheimer’s Disease and related forms of dementia, the cognitive decline and associated symptoms can be a cause of great distress and confusion. The person with dementia suffers natural frustrations attendant with this disease, but the setting and the gentle care staff at Sagecare alleviate those. Staff understand negative behaviours associated with dementia (loss of judgement, mood changes, etc.), looking at things through the eyes of empathy. They’re “on” all the time, trained to consider situations from that viewpoint.

In addition, residents have opportunities for ongoing personal growth at Sagecare, surrounded by the elegant, brightly lit, well-appointed setting. The focus here goes beyond dealing with dementia to living life as richly as possible. People are treated with class and distinction. Families will find that they can reconnect and recover relationships with loved ones. Seniors with dementia to feel at home with themselves. Staff’s expertise and the carefully created environment elevate dementia care.
