Turning a home into a Sanctuary
Real Homes in Tranquil Neighborhoods
A home setting with a normal lifestyle allows residents to welcome family into their own home. Residents enjoy home-cooked meals, play games, and are able to relax in our Florida rooms or open patios with their loved ones. These comfortable homes in lovely residential neighborhoods are secure both inside and out, allowing residents to feel safe and sound just like in their own homes.
ONLY 6 RESIDENTS PER HOME
With one professional caregiver for every 6 residents, Sanctuary by Strive can provide a much higher ratio of caregivers to staff than what you would find in a larger facility with more independency. This enables our residents to receive a higher level of personal attention.
PROFESSIONAL STAFF TRAINED IN MEMORY LOSS
Lower staff turnover means reliable companionship for our memory impaired residents, encouraging a stress-free environment. Our staff receive ongoing training to work with dementia and memory loss individuals. Awake 24/7, our staff provide compassionate care round the clock to assist with needs like dressing, bathing, and medication assistance.
