You would be hard-pressed to find a senior living community that doesn’t claim to have a philosophy of putting residents first. In that regard, Sagora Senior Living is no different than any other community, but where it differs is in the execution of the concept.
Guaranteeing the satisfaction of residents is one thing; doing what needs to be done to make it happen is quite another. Which is why Sagora Senior Living takes its core principles very seriously: commitment, empowerment, communication, and excellence.
Adherence to these core principles is what has transformed the Sagora brand into a top 50 senior housing provider in the U.S., responsible for the daily operations of more than 30 facilities offering independent living, assisted living, and memory care services.
Based in Fort Worth, Texas, Sagora Senior Living operates 36 communities throughout Alabama, California, Florida, Oklahoma, and Texas. Sagora Senior Living’s parent company, The Covenant Group, was founded in 1990 and specializes in the development, construction, and operational integrity of each Sagora property.
No matter the level of care an individual requires, the Sagora Senior Living staff has the same goal: foster a lifestyle for the resident that is enriching, engaging, and meaningful.
The Sagora lifestyle nourishes the soul, gives residents the power of choice, promotes independence, preserves dignity, and encourages continual involvement from resident family and friends.
Making this lifestyle a reality for each resident is front-and-center among each of Sagora Senior Living’s care options.
For those residents who seek a worry-free retirement that mixes independence with the amenities of a senior living community, Sagora offers cottage rentals in a variety of floorplans. Cottage residents are free to come and go as they please, and each unit is outfitted with a list of appealing details, including 1.5 car garage, gas fireplace, fenced backyard, oversized master closet, and much more.
For some, responsibilities such as home maintenance and routine chores can detract from the enjoyment of retired life. Independent living services at Sagora are designed to give residents the feeling of home without the worry. Housekeeping service is performed weekly on all independent living units, meals are prepared fresh daily by a culinary team, and the cost of all utilities (excluding telephone) is included in the care fees.
Assisted living service is about ensuring that care is immediately available when it’s required. The staff at Sagora strives to provide each assisted living resident with the independence he or she desires while never being too far away to lend a helping hand the moment it’s needed. This is particularly important to the family members of residents, who take comfort in the fact that their loved one is the hands of an attentive and compassionate team of professionals.
The memory care professionals at Sagora assist residents with Alzheimer’s disease or other forms of dementia through repeated interaction with specific stimuli, such as noises, sights, or aromas. This helps ease anxiety and increase comfort levels, both equally important when caring for someone diagnosed with a memory impairment.
Each Sagora community is unique because each resident is unique. And these unique individuals are bonded together by the Sagora lifestyle, one characterized by healthy living through exercise, peer activity, and nutrition.
Here are just a few of the unique ingredients that comprise a Sagora community and the lifestyle it promotes.
From woodcarving to painting, residents can hone longtime skills or learn new ones among close friends and located within Sagora’s expansive common areas or professionally manicured grounds.
Sagora communities are often located near or within close proximity to outdoor spaces that encourage relaxing recreational activities, such as fishing and light jogging or walking.
Perhaps it’s a book club or writer’s guild meeting to spark intellectual debate. On other days, it may be a trip to a local winery or restaurant to discuss thoughts with a wine club. No matter the preference, the Sagora staff ensures residents engage in healthy interaction at any level.
Sagora’s expert culinary staff serves nutritious meals to residents three times a day using fresh, locally-sourced ingredients whenever possible. But that never distracts the kitchen from seeking resident requests for new ideas to keep the menu growing.
