Connections memory care
Connections is a holistic approach to memory care at Echo Lake. It features safe living and adaptive, life-enriching programming to suit each individual.
SageLife employs a philosophy called Positive Approach to Care™, which was developed by internationally acclaimed dementia care expert Teepa Snow. The approach recognizes an individual’s changing abilities, which leads to adjusted expectations so the most appropriate care can be delivered at every given moment.
Our goal is to respond to the individual needs of each resident at every stage of brain change. We know that success is built on the relationships between staff and residents. The specially trained staff serves residents with consistency and familiarity, creating a solid foundation of trust. They share in the residents’ accomplishments and struggles as well as their likes and dislikes. It’s a collaborative approach that allows us to consider all aspects of each individual’s emotional, social, physical and spiritual needs.
Echo Lake memory care is a purposefully designed neighborhood that leaves nothing to chance and embodies our vision to enhance lives and celebrate individuality. It’s a community both residents and their loved ones will feel comfortable calling home.
