Sutter Living Center

An Alzheimer's Special Care Unit

Sutter Living Center is a 20-bed self-contained special needs unit within Oakview. It was created to be a temporary home for those with stage four through mid-stage six Alzheimer's desease and related dementias. To be eligible for care residents must:

  • Have an irreversible diagnosis of dementia or Alzheimer's disease as their primary diagnosis
  • Require long-term nursing care
  • Be independently mobile and able to participate in activities
  • Be able to eat on his or her own

Transition out of the special needs unit into the skilled nursing unit will be recommended when a resident's dementia has progressed to an advanced stage in which he or she:

  • Has become bedridden
  • Is unable to eat on his or her own
  • Is unable to participate in activities
  • Develops medical needs that exceed the level of care offered

Sutter Living Center strives to provide the highest level of care and services; activities to nurture the body, mind and spirit; delicious, nourishing meals; warm, inviting accommodations; and an extended family of dedicated friends and caregivers.
