Our elder-centered model of care is an extension of the Eden philosophy, which strives to alleviate the three plagues of loneliness, helplessness, and boredom among our elder population.
The Eden philosophy was founded in 1991 by Dr. William Thomas, a Harvard-educated physician and board-certified geriatrician. The philosophy is based on the core belief that aging should be a continued stage of development and growth, rather than a period of decline. PortagePointe is the only registered Eden home in the four-county area.
Our goal is to make our residents look and feel their best. We have an onsite salon that provides salon services one day per week, where residents can schedule an appointment. Staff is encouraged to walk with our residents and participate in activities with them as well. We hope our residents at PortagePointe feel at home.
These services include:
- Oral Care
