Specialized Alzheimer's and Dementia care that brings daily comfort, engagement and joy.
The impact of memory loss can be devastating. At Sayre Christian Village, we understand and consider everyone involved when it comes to specialized memory care. Our highly trained team works with those with memory loss from Alzheimer’s or dementia to ensure the highest quality of life. Our daily mission is to engage each resident in a way that preserves their choices, promotes their current abilities and supports their independence in a secure environment.
Families are also provided assistance to help them understand and cope with the challenges presented by memory loss. We always welcome family members to visit their loved ones frequently, and to take advantage of every amenity offered at Sayre Christian Village. Share a meal in the dining room, take a stroll through the courtyard, or play a game in the common area.
When our team of caregivers get to spend time with families, we get to understand more about about new friend. Likes, dislikes, hobbies, past times, childhood memories, occupations, family members and milestones all provide our team with an opportunity for a deeper level of connection and understanding. This knowledge transforms into personalized activities and conversations that promote exceptional care for your loved one.
Our Residents Feel Safe, Secure and Valued with the Best Friends™ Approach to Memory Care.
A hallmark of our assisted living memory care program is the Best Friends™ approach to dementia care. This comprehensive approach was developed in the 1990s by Virginia Bell and David Troxel while they were conducting research at the University of Kentucky's Alzheimer’s Disease Research Center. The trademarked approach is based on the idea that the single most important thing a person with dementia needs, is a "best friend." A best friend understands their situation, empathizes with them, is steadfast with love and support, and is dedicated to helping the person feel safe, secure and valued at all times.
Residents who access our health services take comfort knowing they receive remarkable care from an experienced and compassionate team. We strive to create an environment that promotes quality of life and freedom of choice. Health Services are there if and when they are needed. Sayre Christian Village has been enabling residents to age in place for 40+ years!
