Our Difference

Meaningful Moments® Sets the Standard in Memory Care

People living with memory loss face greater challenges than most of us. Being unable to remember life’s most cherished moments is a difficult path, but not a hopeless one. Sinceri Senior Living recognizes that these individuals haven’t lost the capacity to experience joy and are able to continue leading meaningful lives.

That’s the basis for our Meaningful Moments program. This unique approach to caring for those with dementia goes beyond merely making these individuals safe and comfortable. It’s a family-centered concept that starts by learning everything there is to know about our residents – their passions, achievements, careers, family, hobbies and interests. This allows our staff to create moments of real meaning that engage our residents emotionally, physically, mentally, socially and spiritually.

It also helps bond caregivers to the resident, so they are able to see more than their current condition and recognize them for the singular and exceptional person they are. By creating this profound connection, Meaningful Moments establishes a strong foundation of trust and well-being from which residents are able to create new memories and thrive in an environment of exceptional care.

Our Program Philosophy

Our philosophy of care is focused on the knowledge that to provide the care and support our residents need, we must know and understand dementia and the ever changing impact it has on their ability to understand their world. We must also know each resident’s unique life story in order to create moments that are meaningful to them personally. We strive to provide a warm, caring and supportive environment where our residents can experience daily routines and familiar faces. Our programs are designed to add meaning and value to their lives and to help them feel comfortable in their environment. Throughout their stay with us, our residents’ health and well-being will be a shared concern among their family, friends and our knowledgeable staff. As partners in care, we will work together to build a plan that supports their independence and provides them with the sense of belonging that is so important to all of us.

SMILE

SMILE is a software solution that allows our communities to develop a well-rounded program that meets the dimensions of wellness, ensuring we meet their physical, intellectual, spiritual, purposeful, emotional and social needs. SMILE helps in tracking resident participation, allowing us to tailor programs based upon personal preference and life story. Finally, Smile helps staff engage and communicate with family members. It is our good news network and allows us to capture the meaningful moments that occur in our communities and share with families.

Our Story

Jerry Erwin’s dedication to seniors and those with memory loss started when his own mother, Margaret, developed Alzheimer’s disease. She lived with the disease for over 7 years. Following her passing, Jerry soon realized there was a tremendous need for specialized dementia care within specialized communities.

It was this personal experience that lead Jerry to think of a better solution for those at a place that catered to seniors and their very unique needs. In 1993, after months of drawing and redrawing plans and looking at every aspect that he could, Jerry and his extended family built his first dedicated memory care community in Tumwater, WA. This was the first of a long line of successful communities built with the love and understanding of the dementia care model that still exists today. Even to this day, JEA continually looks at ways to better their design to fit the needs of those suffering from Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia.

Today JEA is continuing its passion and love for those who suffer from this devastating disease. It is JEA’s mission to offer as many families as possible the care that they and their loved ones deserve. As JEA continues its growth, the philosophy stays the same, and that is to care for each resident with the love and attention that Jerry expected for his mother.
