Our dementia care philosophy is guided by best practices in our field and is constantly reworked based on the newest findings and forward thinking in dementia care. Sage Eldercare relates to every client who is living with dementia as a whole person, worthy of the same human connections, intellectual and emotional engagement, and moments of joy we all deserve.
This holistic approach to dementia care is based upon the seven domains of quality of life established in our field: the emotional, intellectual, creative, environmental, physical, vocational and spiritual needs we all share as human beings. We firmly believe that every client who is living with dementia will benefit from attention to this wide array of needs.
We pay close attention to verbal and non-verbal communication. We see agitation as a sign of an unmet need—and apply our team’s expertise and creativity to understand and address it. We keep our client’s everyday quality of life at the center of all we do.
