Memory Care is all we do…and we’re really good at it
As the founders of Sundara, we understand the profound challenge of finding the right care. Not only do we have decades of experience helping families navigate this complex and emotional decision, but we also have personal experiences with our own families.
Something Had to Change
Unfortunately, the situation in senior care is bleak. The landscape is littered with a bewildering array of communities offering confusing and costly care and service packages. Add in poor staff quality with high turnover rates and you have a system that undermines the very consistency that is crucial for the quality of life of our residents. The relentless pursuit of profits by some facilities puts families under enormous strain.
As we began to imagine a new way of doing care, we knew a few things. We knew that excellent care did not need to be so expensive, or come in a variety of packages, plans, and programs with fancy names and costly features that masked poor staff quality and a corporate approach focused on profits. We knew we wanted to provide meaningful experience and value, so we defined our approach exclusively from the perspective of our residents.
Built for Connection
We started with a simple question; “What would we want for our parents?” The answers were obvious and provided the framework for the Sundara model, that focuses on making connections and not just providing a service.
We never use third-party managers or have a multi-level management structure. Instead, everyone is directly and actively involved in the well-being of our residents, including our owners, thereby ensuring an unmatched level of consistency, accountability, and responsiveness.
Smaller & Simpler
Current research shows that people suffering from dementia generally do better in smaller and more intimate settings, so we designed our communities as smaller, more intimate residences. This allows more proactive, observationally-based interactions, engagement and structure throughout the full course of the day, vastly improving the quality of life for our residents.
Excellent care begins with excellent staff. We take immense care in screening and selecting the most dedicated people. We develop them with a rigorous training program that encompasses specialized skills, continuing education, paid-for certifications, and advancement within the company.
Finally, we recognize that value has become difficult to find in senior care, but we are bringing it back. We do not offer levels of care. We do not believe in add-on fees and upcharges, service packages or special promotions. Our fees are simple – fixed and all-inclusive, to allow families to budget with confidence and certainty. Best of all, our fees are lower.
Bottom line...you need to experience our difference. Visit with our staff, meet with our owners, and hear from our residents’ families about their experience. You’ll notice a difference within the first two minutes.
