Summary Profile

About Sagecare 147 Elder Street

Located in a residential neighborhood across the street from a park, 147 Elder St. provides a home like environment exclusively for dementia care.  In our community, dementia is the rule not the exception.  It’s just life. Working with elders experiencing dementia for over 20 years, we know that there is virtually no situation in which their condition can be called stable, simple or predictable.  Our skilled nurses can distinguish between emerging medical problems and evolving behavioral changes ensuring all our elders get the care they need. Every member of our community is well-known, honored, respected and loved.

COVID-19 Information

At this difficult and constantly changing time our nurse-led residence is working daily with Public Health and Humber Regional Hospital IPAC team to insure we are meeting all standards of infection control.

With additional cleaning staff and our one to 3 staff ratio our residents are able to spend their time in the community safely distanced with our staff insuring the surfaces they touch are disinfected. We able to safely offer a wide variety of activities to our residents maintaining infection control protocol. As protocol changes we are keeping our families apprised and updated.

Insider reviews & perspectives

Comfort Life Review


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.
