Sage Oak of Lake Charles is not your typical senior living facility. The concept is new, inviting, and welcoming. Seniors thrive in a home-like setting with a boutique community feel. It’s more like a quaint neighborhood than what you’d expect to find in a senior living community. Buildings are designed with an emphasis on comfort and an active social atmosphere.
How is Sage Oak of Lake Charles Designed?
With only 16 beds in each of the five houses at Sage Oak, the resident-to-staff ratio is low. This 1:5 to 1:8 caregiver-to-residents ratio provides the best opportunity for quality care, allowing staff to focus more intentionally on each resident’s needs.
Sage Oak’s design is unique in the senior living industry. Each house has an open floorplan and open kitchen concept. The central part of each home is an open kitchen/community area where residents can see their meals prepared, enjoy dining together and socialize. There is also a centrally-located caregiver station that includes windows, ensuring help is always readily available.
