Everyone needs something to do, something to be passionate about and something to look forward to.
These three truths are what we all strive to satisfy in our daily lives, because they give us hope and purpose. Meeting these needs can be a particular challenge for seniors in assisted living communities. They may be mourning the loss of a sense of purpose or feel that they have nothing to look forward to. These three simple things are what we strive to provide each day for our residents at Sage Glendale Senior Living.
• We offer a robust social calendar based on our residents’ desires and abilities: Something to do.
• Our residents are making new friends with each other, meeting for meals and outings: Something to look forward to.
• We get to know each of our residents, what is meaningful to them, honoring their passions.
