Assisted Living at The Kensington Sierra Madre
Welcome to The Kensington Sierra Madre – an assisted living community, where our team of dedicated professionals understands how important it is for many families to stay close by to senior loved ones who need care. We also understand how preserving the comfort of their loved one’s routines helps make the care experience more pleasant for the whole family.
Why The Kensington Sierra Madre?
Our residence is located in the heart of the San Gabriel Valley, just minutes from the 210 Freeway. We’re just across the street from Memorial Park, as well as both the police department and fire station. Shopping and cafés are within a short walk, as is the Sierra Madre Congregational Church.
We find or create ways to help residents feel comfortable, secure, happy, and dignified. We build care into the rapport we cultivate with residents. To create the best conditions for this “relationship-based” focus, we assign a primary care manager to each resident.
The Kensington Sierra Madre residents enjoy active social lives. We offer events seven days a week, from morning until evening. But it isn’t just about keeping busy. Regular activities create friendships and help to foster engagement and preserve wellness. We have full-time Life Enrichment coordinators, who work to keep your schedule as full as you want it to be.
Enjoy wine with lunch and dinner with your family in our elegant main dining room. Feast on meals prepared by our professionally trained chef, complete with accommodation of special dietary needs or preferences. Or grab refreshments and snacks on the go at our well-stocked café.
Helping Your Loved One to “Age in Place”
This is The Kensington Sierra Madre Promise. We offer assistance that includes a full spectrum of clinical support – beyond what many traditional assisted living communities offer. This enables residents to “age in place.” They will not have to move out if assisted living health care needs change or increase.
Our enhanced program of care makes it possible for residents to continue living here, even if assisted living health care needs change or increase.
The consistent attention of one individual keeps the continuum of familiarity intact. It also preserves meaningful routines for residents. Ultimately, the bond between residents, their care manager, and the entire team deepens, and the care experience becomes pleasant and dignified rather than stressful.
Choosing Your “Neighborhood” at The Kensington Sierra Madre
To enhance our age in place concept, we offer two “neighborhoods.” Connections is for residents who are in the early to middle stages of memory loss. There we help them live independently in home-like living spaces that foster a sense of familiarity. And as they do, we strive to maximize their abilities by making the most of their strengths.
But if your loved one moves into middle to late stage memory loss, they can transition seamlessly into our Havens neighborhood, where they’ll enjoy a higher level of assistance and care. It’s a safe environment where your loved one is free to stroll about the premises, under the watchful “eye” of our wander management technology.
Both are cozy, intimate neighborhoods where our trained staff will work to meet them where they are, while always being aware that the memory loss process is different for everyone.
You or your loved one can choose between one of four luxury suite floor plans that work best for your needs and comfort. They provide private or companion living, and pets are always welcome.
Resident Care, The Kensington Way
The Kensington Sierra Madre weaves professional care in a heartfelt way into the everyday lives of residents. With a high degree of sensitivity, our caregivers help residents patiently with even the smallest of tasks; watch carefully for cues when they should lend more support, and retreat when appropriate so residents can remain as independent as possible.
The Kensington offers a Physician’s Office on-site with regular office hours. We also provide a full-time Registered Nurse who coordinates all aspects of our resident’s nursing and medical care. Also, licensed nurses are on-site 24 hours a day, and offer Medication Administration.
If needed, we offer outpatient rehabilitation services onsite through our partnership with HealthPro Rehab. Our goal is to help our residents maintain or regain their optimal level of independence. Programs offered include physical and occupational therapy, speech therapy and fitness programs tailored to each participant’s needs.
