Skilled Memory Care

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.

Rehabilitation Center

Our state-of-the-art rehabilitation center focuses on short-term rehabilitation, utilizing industry leading therapy equipment, and specially trained therapists.

Sayre has partnered with Aegis Therapies for many years to provide needed rehabilitative services to its residents and to give award-winning services to the community.

We offer occupational, speech, and physical therapy with the goals of speeding the transition from inpatient medical care to a home setting!

Short-term, outpatient, and inpatient rehab available!


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.


At Sayre Healthcare Center, three well-balanced meals are served daily. Meals are served in the Café and in the main dining room. Residents may also choose to dine in their room. Guests are always welcome; meal tickets are available at the front desk for a small fee.

Snacks are available at any time.

We have a full time Registered Dietician on staff and a culinary team that cares about the residents' dining preferences and enjoyment.

Most therapeutic diets are able to be accommodated.

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 families can gather to be with their loved one in his/her final days for peace, privacy and dignity. Of course, Chaplain Dale is available to meet with you or help you connect with a faith leader in the community upon request.

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

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