Roots in the community for over 55 years

Sauer Memorial Home opened in 1966 as a long-term care facility. In 2012 our name changed to Sauer Health Care to promote our current services and to be able to add new services in the future. Sauer Health Care is a free standing, non-profit organization committed to providing high quality skilled nursing care, respite care, therapy services, hospice services and more!

What our resident’s families have to say:

“It is impossible to express in words our gratitude to all of you for your loving care, compassion and kindness you’ve shown our mother.”
– Mary & Therese

“The excellent care and compassion shown our mother during her 6 + months stay at Sauer meant so much to her and her family. The support shown to us the last days for her life by all staff was beyond our expectations”

“I’d like to let everyone at Sauer know how much my sisters and I appreciated the amazing comfort care that was afforded to our dad during his short, end-of-life stay at Sauer last year in January. This “care” was not limited towards us from just the Sauer employees and staff members, but also from  the residents that offered so much kindness and personal care & attention to our father (and to us) during his short stay prior to his death. We could not have asked for a better place to share our fathers last days. We will forever remember and be grateful to all of the people that We and He encountered at Sauer. We hope that you all have a loving and memorable holiday season, and want you all to know that we will forever be appreciative of the love and kindness you afforded to our father and our family during our greatest time of need.”

With love and gratitude always,

Gary’s Daughters
