Why a Respected Senior Living Professional Chose Luthercare for Her Dad

As Founder, President and Executive Consultant for Sage Age Strategies, a nationally recognized marketing and consulting firm specializing in the senior living industry, Faith Ott knows a lot about senior living. A lot. For over 30 years, she has helped providers – big and small, for profit and not-for-profit – with everything from campus master planning to program/ service development to creative strategy to census enhancement – and beyond.

While senior living providers from all over the country trust Faith for her industry expertise and success, Faith trusted Luthercare when it was time to find a new home for her own father, Robert. “I’ve been in this business a long time and it was still hard for me to accept my dad should no longer live at home alone,” says Faith. “What wasn’t hard, however, was choosing Luthercare. There was never a doubt in my mind that Luthercare would be the place.”

Faith knew a Continuing Care Retirement Community (CCRC) would be best for her dad because of the lifestyle, security and peace of mind CCRCs offer. “While there are a lot of great options out there, there’s just something special about Luthercare,” says Faith. “It’s a warm, welcoming community filled with many wonderful people. In all my years in this business, I haven’t found another senior retirement community quite like Luthercare.”

Robert moved into an independent living apartment at Luther Acres in 2012 and is now in a personal care apartment where he is thriving. Faith says the engaging programming has helped her dad get out of his apartment and into the community. “Thanks to the amazing care he’s received by a truly high-quality staff, my father is much more active and connected to other residents. In fact, he is healthier now than he was 4 and a half years ago!”

Faith adds that the best part of Luthercare is the fact that she no longer worries about her dad’s health or happiness. “Dad will celebrate his 90th birthday soon … and each day I celebrate the role Luthercare has played in ensuring he reaches this milestone.”
