Every Stage of Senior Care

For Every Stage of Senior Care, There’s Sagepoint

Care for an aging loved one can take many stages. For family members and primary caregivers, the decisions about what type of care is right at what point in time can feel overwhelming. But the professionals of Sagepoint Senior Living Services have more than 40 years of experience serving families in Southern Maryland through all stages of aging. When the time is right to seek the best care — and successive levels of care — Sagepoint is the trusted source.

Adult Day Services

Sagepoint’s specially-trained day service providers provide help with daily activities from simple assistance to total care. Services range from administering medications and monitoring of physical conditions to nutrition consulting, weight management and other daily health oversights. Even accompaniment to social outings when family members cannot attend can be provided. We can alleviate many of the everyday worries that families and friends face for aging loved ones.

Home Care

A helping hand, a companion, a confidante. The Home Care professionals at Sagepoint can fulfill all of these roles in the comfort and security of your loved one’s own home. The challenges of daily housekeeping, laundry, cooking, errands, shopping and other everyday activities that most people take for granted can be attended to by our visiting in-home service providers. We get started with a comprehensive needs assessment by our Registered Nurse Case Manager. Depending on case by case needs, our home care professionals can provide bathing and grooming assistance, toileting and ambulation help and feeding assistance. Of course, the simple comfort of daily companionship that people of all ages need is equally important. All of these heartfelt services and more are available from Sagepoint.

Short-Term Rehabilitation Services

Sometimes, everyone needs help getting back into the fullness of life after an injury, surgery or other health obstacles. Sagepoint Senior Living Services offers rehabilitative care expertise to help you or a loved one overcome a setback and regain wellness.

Assisted Living, Long-term Care and Memory Care

Life is to be enjoyed, at every stage. Everyone at Sagepoint holds that ideal in high esteem, and it guides our care services for your aging loved ones who need a residential setting that truly meets their changing needs and focuses on their safety, security and happiness. Sagepoint’s progressive in-residence care services — including assisted living, long-term care and memory care — address every family’s concerns and needs on a personal level.

Sagepoint’s Donors Provided Unprecedented Support in 2020

 

As a senior care nonprofit organization, Sagepoint has faced deep challenges during the COVID-19 pandemic, and our financial needs have increased dramatically since the spring of 2020:

  • Increased equipment costs for supplies such as HEPA filtration, sanitation and technology needs
  • Regular purchasing of personal protective equipment supplies for staff and residents
  • Soaring costs of continued weekly testing for staff and residents
  • Additional staff education to keep up with extensive regulatory changes throughout the pandemic.

However, our gracious benefactors have helped the organization meet these challenges by increasing their generous donations over the past several months to help us counter the effects that COVID-19 has disproportionately had on seniors. For this, we are honored and immensely grateful.

Multiple Awards of Excellence Show Sagepoint’s Commitment to Our Clients and Their Families


Since the COVID-19 pandemic began in full in March 2020, countless segments of society have obviously felt its effects. One segment, in particular, is the senior community, as well as their families and the people who serve them. 

In our long-standing tradition of innovative commitment to the community, the staff and leadership of Sagepoint Senior Living Services have risen to this past year’s unique and unprecedented challenges, and we are proud to say that not only have our clients and their guardians recognized our efforts, so have third-party sources who annually evaluate standards for senior care in the United States. 

For the second year in a row, US News and World Report named Sagepoint a Best Nursing Home. This year it is especially noteworthy to again be included in this top tier, given the exceptional care requirements that the ongoing pandemic has brought to Sagepoint and our senior care peers across the country. 

Two respected publications also named Sagepoint as a Best Nursing Home for 2020, one regional and one national. The readership of Southern Maryland News voted to rate leading senior care providers in Southern Maryland, and Sagepoint won Readers’ Choice. Newsweek also surveyed its readers and subscribers, placing us in the Top 5 Best Nursing Homes for 2020 on a national level. 

Everyone at Sagepoint is honored to have these awards bestowed upon us, and we pledge to provide the same exemplary standards of service in 2021 and for years to come.

Sagepoint Home Care

Sagepoint Home Care Services — Where Peace of Mind Lives

Sagepoint Home Care
The comforts of home are universal at any stage in life, so it is certainly understandable that most older adults wish to stay at home as long as possible to age in place. Remaining at home permits a full life lived with dignity, respect and purpose. 

Many experts, families and older people themselves firmly believe that living at home for as long as possible actually keeps people more physically active and mentally engaged later in life. At Sagepoint Senior Living Services, we absolutely agree. 

Sagepoint’s experience in elder care over more than 40 years has given us unique insights and expertise in providing home care living assistance services to seniors and their families throughout Southern Maryland. 

For many of our Home Care clients, whether arranged directly by them or by their families, care services are simple and straightforward. They may involve home visits a few days a week or daily to assist with regular activities like light housekeeping, laundry, light meal preparation, or escort services to appointments and regular errands. Sagepoint’s Home Care visits also provide companionship for older people who aren’t able to visit with family and friends as often as they’d like. And let’s be honest…in the era of COVID-19, a little friendly human interaction is something everyone appreciates, no matter what their age. 

For some Sagepoint Home Care clients, of course, daily needs are more complex. Depending on their level of ability, clients may need help with feeding, bathing and personal care, dressing or toileting. Comprehensive meal planning and preparation may be required, along with medication reminders and administration. Needs assessments by Registered Nurse (RN) Case Managers ensure the proper level of involvement, and personal care services are performed by trained caregivers. 

The benefits of Sagepoint Home Care Services are focused not only on the elder person in their home, but on their caregiving family and friends, as well. Daily life simply sometimes beckons, and proper in-home care gives family members guilt-free assurance that their loved ones’ needs are attended to when they simply can’t be there. Sagepoint Home care is likewise reassuring for the elderly care recipients, knowing that their daily care needs won’t necessarily overburden others.

Inaugural Sagepoint Golf Tournament at Swan Point Yacht & Country Club

Good Times for a Great Cause at the Inaugural Sagepoint Golf Tournament

Inaugural Sagepoint Golf Tournament at Swan Point Yacht & Country Club

 

The inaugural Sagepoint Foundation Golf Tournament was a rousing success.

Dozens of golfers joined us at Swan Point Yacht & Country Club on September 23 to spend a fun day on the links, enjoying the beautiful course and giving back to support senior care initiatives.

In a year full of trying circumstances for people everywhere, the day represented an opportunity to come together and enjoy good company as well as some friendly competition on the course.

We want to extend our sincere thanks to all the participants for joining us and for following the social distancing protocols that were in place everywhere that day. We also want to thank our amazing sponsors, including Dennis Anderson Construction, Specified Electrical Systems, Community Bank of the Chesapeake, CRGA Design, Colonial Liquors and Chick-fil-A.

All net proceeds raised during the golf tournament will benefit the Foundation’s education programs, such as the Geriatric Nursing Assistant (GNA) training program and the pathways from GNA to Nurse program.

The GNA training program funds individuals seeking to become certified GNAs and is offered to community members at no charge. The pathways from GNA to nursing program helps fund tuition for current Sagepoint GNA’s to become nurses.

Every day, we provide a full spectrum of services for our patients, including Adult Day Services, Rehabilitation, Assisted Living, Long-Term Care, Memory Care and Home Care.

Programs like these enable us to continue providing high-quality senior care here in Southern Maryland. By increasing access to education, we provide and advance the careers of individuals passionate about caring for our seniors, regardless of socioeconomic status.
