Description of St Gabriel of Corpus Christi
We believe that if a community’s focus is strictly on care, they don’t care enough. At St Gabriel of Corpus Christi, great care is just a by-product of bigger and better things.
We’ve taken the blueprint for traditional memory care and put it right where it belongs—the trash can. It wasn’t hard. Traditional memory care communities stink. There’s no getting around that.
What do we do? At St Gabriel of Corpus Christi, we start with a deep-rooted belief that if there is breath in a person’s lungs, their life has tremendous value. We have built a team that aligns with that belief. We believe all people should be viewed through the lens of what they can do rather than what they cannot. And this team, they are really good at it.
We’re located in Corpus Christi, just off SPID. Our team members are NIDE (National Institute for Dementia Education) trained and certified which is a mouthful to say, but simply means that our team members are prepared and qualified to interact with your loved one as a unique human being, not a case study. Our community features four unique small house living environments, each with its own living, dining, and courtyard spaces. Every detail of the community was purpose-built to maximize freedom and creativity.
Look, we know that memory loss can be difficult for families. Fortunately, finding the memory care thought leaders in Corpus Christi isn’t.
St Gabriel of Corpus Christi team members (employees) come to work each day to build long-lasting friendships with our Elders. Many of our key leaders bring valuable experience to our industry from other fields. Simply put, our leaders believe that if we treat our team well, they will, in turn, love our residents well.
We carefully build teams in St Gabriel of Corpus Christi community who align on a few core beliefs. One of those beliefs is that every breath breathed on earth serves a purpose. It’s a powerful thought. This rooted belief allows us to offer significant strength and direction to families with an Elder living with memory loss. Our introduction to most families occurs when they have more questions than answers. Our communities are designed to simplify life and empower residents to make their own living choices. Our approach is to educate and teach families new and productive patterns of communication with their mom, dad, spouse or sibling who is living with memory loss.
Every member of the St Gabriel of Corpus Christi team is NIDE (National Institute for Dementia Education) certified. That includes everyone from the chefs and housekeepers to the concierge and nurses. Education allows us to interact with our memory care residents as unique people rather than objects in need of care. Every Elder has a story. Our goal is to play a significant role in this chapter by building a friendship and instilling purpose.
