Health and Wellness

Part of creating an environment that allows residents to live life to the fullest includes creating programs that support their health and wellness.

Feelings Matter Most Approach

The Trouvés care philosophy is based on the Feelings Matter Most model. This care model puts an emphasis on compassion as the core priority, helping ensure that each resident feels nurtured, engaged in life, safe and comfortable. It’s all about creating a home where people are encouraged to explore their passions and lead lives that excite, engage and empower.

Equine Therapy

Equine therapy is a mode of healing that involves interactions between residents and horses. It includes such activities as grooming, feeding, haltering and leading a horse, supervised by a mental health professional. The goal of equine therapy is to help residents develop accountability, responsibility, and problem-solving skills, while increasing their confidence and self-esteem.


Nutrition is a critical component to the health of our residents. St. Ann is working closely with the University of Washington to study how nutrition may improve memory care. Our menus include fresh, organic food, prepared to maximize taste and presented in an elegant and appealing manner.


Physical movement is critical to maintain both a healthy body and a healthy mind. Residents have many opportunities to walk and enjoy the beautiful courtyard, stroll among our beautiful grounds, garden, and participate in exercise groups.


Needed medications are monitored by trained medical personnel. St. Ann’s policy requires a constant review of medications as well as a review during treatment planning. Staff are trained to alert proper medical personnel when they see any change in a resident’s behavior. If changes are noted, the treatment team will hold a clinical consultation to support the resident.
