Providing Memory Care in Central Florida Since 1994

Sutton Homes - About Us

Central Florida’s original Alzheimer’s and dementia care assisted living facilities.

Sutton Homes is Dedicated to Alzheimer’s and Dementia Care

In 1994, Sutton Homes began providing exceptional and compassionate assisted living in locally-owned facilities. Sanctuary by Strive acquired the company in 2020 to incorporate Sutton Homes’ 25 years of experience as a complement to their existing local communities.

We understand that when a loved one starts to show signs of memory loss or dementia, finding an assisted living facility is not the first thing you want to consider. But once it becomes apparent that the family needs help, a critical question becomes “Is there an assisted living facility specializing in care for people with dementia and Alzheimer’s disease?”

Sutton Homes Understands Exactly What You Are Going Through.

Perhaps a loved one has started exhibiting symptoms of memory loss, dementia, or Alzheimer’s disease. Feeling scared and confused is normal. Gail and Jim Baxter, the previous owners of Sutton Homes in Central Florida, endured a similar process while dealing with Gail’s mother. In her own words, Gail recalls the “panic, horror and complete despair” that she felt when her own mother showed the first signs of Alzheimer’s disease.

They decided to take it upon themselves to open the first Sutton Home in Maitland in 1994.

The Baxter’s created a new option for assisted living and changed the thinking for Alzheimer’s care. The Sutton Homes concept avoids long hallways, big buildings, large dining rooms, and multiple staff. It is the way people are used to living, in the home.
