The Sagewood is located at 345 Cobequid Road in Sackville. The home accommodates 50 people in total, 37 who need Level II nursing care and 13 who require the supports of residential care.

A new model of care creates a relaxed home environment at The Sagewood. There are four cottages within the home with 12 to 13 individuals, each with a single room and a private washroom. Each cottage has its own living room, dining room, bathing suites and access to enclosed garden spaces.

Staff are dedicated to each cottage so consistency and familiarity grows. The Continuing Care Assistant has an enhanced role in providing care, recreation activities, preparing and serving meals, doing light housekeeping and laundry. This diminishes the number of people entering your home and creates stability and comfort for all residents and staff.

Upon entering The Sagewood you will be greeted by our streetscape. Much like a regular street in a small community it is here you can stop to get your hair done, share a coffee with family at the Dragonfly Café while watching your grandchildren play or visit with friends in the Town Hall. You can do all this while being protected from the elements and enjoying the natural light from the skylights.

The model of care supports those who live and work in the cottages to work, play and eat together. Here at Rosecrest, we are truly excited to see this wonderful model come to fruition.
