THIS INTENSE FOCUS ON PEOPLE IS WHAT SETS THE

GUERIN MODEL APART FROM OTHERS.

  • To create a home environment rather than a clinical facility.
  • To extend the full continuum of Villa care by providing services for persons with memory loss.
  • To provide high level, long-term nursing care through low staff-to-elder ratios.
  • To provide an intentional community for frail elders where the focus is on living life, rather than on simply receiving care.
