Heartfelt Connections Offered in Assisted Living and Memory Care Communities at Sagewood

Getting to know residents is Sagewood’s mission every single day. Not only does it provide a deep connection between staff and residents, but it also helps Sagewood provide the best care to residents by creating individualized plans.

While it is easy to see only decline of abilities when a loved one is dealing with memory loss, Sagewood choses to focus on abilities remain rather than what abilities have been lost. This perspective guides the everyday approach to caring for residents and providing a living experience like no other.

One of the best examples of Sagewood’s dedication to personalized care is through the Heartfelt Connections Program.

The program, unique to LCS communities, focuses on providing residents the opportunity to do as much as they can for themselves. Whether it’s allowing residents to feed themselves, selecting their clothing for the day or trying a new hobby, residents are encouraged to remain as independent as possible for as long as they are able. This is the result of providing just the right level of care and customizing the experience for each individual resident rather than offering a standard universal approach.

Part of the Heartfelt Connections philosophy is allowing memory care residents to reflect on their past through life stations and points of interest stations. Life stations give residents an opportunity to give back to the others by helping with laundry, dining hall preparation and business-related activities. The points of interest stations are hobby related and provide opportunities to complete arts and crafts as well as other creative expressions like karaoke. One recent point of interest activity offered a travel-inspired activity where residents placed pins on a world map to indicate places they have traveled. Even though they may not be able to travel anymore, many residents took a deep interest in learning about new countries and discovered a great deal about the world remotely.

In addition to enjoying engaging activities, Sagewood residents receive high-quality, consistent care from Licensed Practical Nurses (LPNs). General physicians and specialists also come to the community to ensure each residents’ health is at the optimum level.

While the activities and care residents receive help make Sagewood unique, the latest outstanding feature, a Multisensory Relaxation Room, takes residents’ experience to a whole new level. Complete with mood lighting and music to soothe residents, this new attraction will aid in calming and rejuvenating all who enter this unique space. This further highlights Sagewood’s dedication to providing rich experiences for all residents.

Making the decision to move into an assisted living or memory care facility is never an easy one but it is easier when the community puts empathy and compassion first. At Sagewood the focus is always on residents and helping them enjoy rich experiences while maintaining their independence.
