The Sarah Center (Dementia Care)
Recognizing the growing need to provide care for the elderly with Alzheimer’s type dementia, Cartmell Home opened the Sarah Center in 1996. The Sarah Center is a 35 bed Secured Unit. This specialized neighborhood is managed by a team of Cartmell Staff that has been specifically trained to meet the needs of residents with memory impairment. Special features of this neighborhood include spacious corridors, a soda shop, activities areas, sun porch, nourishment stations, and an electronically monitored secured courtyard.
Alzheimer’s Support Group
Cartmell Home has an organized Alzheimer’s Support Group that meets in the Activity Building on the first Tuesday of every month from noon until 1:00 p.m. Family members of our residents as well as those caring for individuals with dementia in the community are encouraged to join us as we share our experiences and ideas on how to cope with this disease. A free lunch is provided.
