SarahCare is not for people who have dementia. I have a family member who went there and has terminal dementia and does not know what she is saying nor doing half the time. She went there a dozen or so times to give her caregiver the relief that was so needed. Upon a set back in financials the care giver could not afford the service which was only two days a week. While she did apply for a service that would allow her to continue going there it had not started yet and the break was needed. After the last day that my family member went there her care giver received a letter stating that she was no longer welcome there. the reasons were that she had continually would swear and would according to the letter on three occasions spit at the crew. The letter went on to state that until more staff could be made available for a 1 on 1 service they felt that due to sanitary and verbal concerns they were no longer able to provide the need for services. Their website LIES stating that "We welcome participants needing support to continue independent living; persons with memory loss; and, those needing assistance with activities of daily living." Memory loss being key words. While dementia is not Alzheimer's in that one is a group of symptoms that can effect memory the other is a disease that can also effect memory. I gave them a 3 star cause even though while there my family member was having some problems I saw some improvement in her daily "active" lifestyle where before she seemed to be "down in the dumps" as it were and not wanting to care about anything.

I visited this facility
Upon entering, I was surprised by how large and how many people were at the facility, but it felt and looked homey. Staff members were leading a bowling game down the middle of the main room and residents who were not playing were watching others and seemed to enjoy it. The food being cooked smelled delicious, and residents commented on how things were home-cooked. The facility looked clean and pleasant.
