Our own experience is that
people seeking assisted living care have many of the same needs:
- To be treated with respect
- To be actively engaged in
a community of some kind.
- To be involved in his/her
own treatment and living plan.
- To be cared for by
skilled, medically-knowledgeable caregivers, working as a team.
You may notice that our
list of "needs" seems to go in the opposite order to that of most
hospital-model nursing homes; this is not an accident.
Unfortunately most of our elderly population who need care are
treated with the billing system's needs and not their own in mind.
Similarly the families of
people seeking caring environments have their own set of needs they are
seeking to fulfill:
- Peace of mind about their
loved-ones physical and mental state.
- Relief from the
time-consuming job of caring for their family members themselves.
- Relief from the feelings
of guilt which often overcome them when they find they do not have the
physical, emotional, or intellectual resources to personally provide
appropriate care for those they love.
The Sugarbush Houses we

take care of their family member is a loving, kind and generous act.
