Reviews of Sagecare 147 Elder Street

Gain exclusive insight into life at Sagecare 147 Elder Street. Comfort Life’s exclusive reviews and videos give you insider information from residents and their families.

Our perspective

Sagecare 147 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 147 Elder Street help alleviate those. Staff here understand negative behaviours associated with dementia (loss of judgement, mood changes, etc.), looking at things through the eyes of the person with dementia. They’re “on” all the time, trained to invariably 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 merely dealing with dementia to continuing to live a life that’s as rich as possible. People are treated with class and distinction. Families will find, in this setting, that they have means to reconnect and recover relationships with loved ones. It’s an environment that encourages seniors with dementia to feel at home with themselves. Thanks to staff’s expertise and the carefully controlled environment, this truly is elevated dementia care.
