The Article Highlighted Our Innovative Memory Care Programs

Titled “4 Memory Care Operators to Watch in 2024,” the SHN article was impressively positive about Sage Oak of Lake Charles. Author Austin Montgomery applauded our “forward-thinking operations.” He added, “Sage Oak’s efforts fit into a larger trend by memory care operators to offer more personalized services for residents.”

This recognition focused on our new memory care model, Curated Care. It groups residents with similar outcomes and abilities based on health data and information provided by their loved ones. The residents live together in a boutique healthcare setting that goes above and beyond traditional care models.

Easing the Stigma Associated With Memory Care Programming

According to Sage Oak CEO Loe Hornbuckle, Curated Care allows our caregivers to offer highly personalized support that residents and family members value. In an earlier interview with Memory Care Business, he stated that this approach “will help ease the stigma associated with needing memory care services.”

Hornbuckle fully supports innovative care approaches that can reach people sooner. Although trying new ideas is more challenging than “lumping everyone together,” he feels the excellent outcomes are worth the effort.

“This is going to be a transformative change in how we approach things,” he added.
