Dementia - Reflection of Life Community

As life expectancies increase, so also does the probability that Alzheimer’s disease or a related dementia will occur in older adults. These diseases take a toll on those afflicted and place a heavy burden on the families who care for them.

Sayre Christian Village recognizes the need for a safe, peaceful, loving environment where residents with dementia may live with dignity.   In Sayre Christian Village’s Reflection of Life Community, residents can maintain independence and freedom to enjoy their lives to the fullest extent possible.

The Reflection of Life Community introduces a unique concept of care for persons with dementia. Residents are cared for by highly trained staff who become part of the family.  The caregivers treat each resident individually, focusing on their special needs. No “cookie cutter” approaches!

The Reflection of Life Community is patterned after a model developed by Jude Rabig,  nationally known for providing care to older adults.  She has been on-site at Sayre, helping us design, build, and furnish our “small houses”.  She has personally instructed our staff in the intricacies of this type of loving care.

The self-contained small house is well-designed for easy usability by frail residents; it is organized and operated around the guiding principles of autonomy and dignity, and a home-like living environment is maximized.   It is a joy to experience the peace and harmony that results from this approach.

Palliative Care

The Healthcare Center has established three suites specifically designed for residents who are in the final days of their lives.

The Comfort Care Suites are larger, private rooms where a resident may be moved so that families can gather to be with their loved one in his/her final days for peace, privacy and dignity.

Sayre Healthcare Center is the first Long Term Care community given special permission by the State to provide this additional level of care.

There are no special requirements – those in need have this special service available regardless of their payer status.

Please contact us for more information.


Sayre Healthcare Center’s Life Enrichment Program is varied and personalized to the individual needs of the older adults that consider us home.

Our goal is to empower residents to live their best life and take advantage of all the opportunities for spiritual, physical, and mental health during their time at the Healthcare Center.

Snacks are available at any time.
