Looking Local: Sagepoint Senior Living Services Grows Stronger With Age

Posted by: Economic Development Team on Friday, December 29, 2017

For our latest edition of “Looking Local,” we spoke to Kelsey Pearson, director of marketing at Sagepoint Senior Living Services.  La Plata-based Sagepoint was founded in 1976 and now employs 271 people in Charles County, offering long-term care, adult day services, rehabilitation, home care, assisted living, and memory care for seniors in our local community. In addition to the main La Plata location, the company also operates Sagepoint Gardens Assisted Living in La Plata and Home Care serving all of Southern Maryland.

Charles County Economic Development Department (EDD): What is Sagepoint’s history in Charles County?

Kelsey Pearson (KP): For more than 40 years — first as Charles County Nursing and Rehabilitation Center and now as Sagepoint — our community-focused nonprofit has provided the region with the highest quality senior care. Initially founded as a nursing home, today we continue to grow our services and offer an unmatched scope of trusted care solutions.

EDD: What are the main advantages of doing business in Charles County?

KP: The community. As a nonprofit organization, the quality of senior care we provide simply would not be possible without the support of partner organizations, our Sagepoint families, and the Charles County community.

EDD: Describe your experience working directly with the Charles County EDD.

KP: The Charles County EDD has been a wonderful partner for us! They do an excellent job of helping us echo news regarding our latest projects and successes on social media and in their e-newsletter. The staff is always friendly and willing to help.

EDD: What has been your company’s greatest success thus far?

KP: We have had several successes in 2017 alone. We broke ground on the new Sagepoint Village Assisted Living Community, nearly completed the expansion of the Rehabilitation Center, and officially kicked off our Development Program. Sagepoint was also recognized as a Five-Star Medicare rated community (twice!) and named Nonprofit of the Year by the Charles County Chamber of Commerce.

EDD: Does your company have any future plans that you would like to share?

KP: We are currently expanding our rehabilitation center, which is slated to be completed by early spring. This center will boast a modern design and consist of 30 private rooms complete with private baths and showers. The center will offer a new state-of-the-art therapy gym with a mock bedroom and kitchen aimed at helping patients master the same daily living skills needed to return home. We’ve also started construction on our newest project - a 60-bed, state-of-the-art assisted living community, Sagepoint Village, in La Plata. The building will neighbor Sagepoint Gardens and is anticipated to open in early 2019.
