The Vicarage By The Sea, was founded in 1998 with the desire to make a difference for those living with dementing illnesses. Pioneers in their approach, Johanna Wigg, Ph.D. and Dementia Care Specialist, Cheryl Golek set out to prove that social and psychological realms of long-term care for elders living with dementing illnesses could be improved.

A small, residential home setting, surrounded by woods and flower gardens, The Vicarage by the Sea is an oceanside retreat for elders living with progressive neurological diseases, such as Alzheimer's-like disorders, affecting memory, use of language, physical ability and other cognitive functions. The normalization of dementia experience is what defines The Vicarage culture. Each individual deserves dignified, person centered care, allowing for continued growth and preservation of identity. Relationships with peers, staff, family, pets and community keep residents enriched and engaged. Creating a home environment, where residents can age in place, is the philosophy of The Vicarage. Stability in residence, relationships and routine eliminates the stress of transitions for the person living with dementia, thereby enhancing their overall wellbeing. Delicious home cooked meals, comfortable decor and natural surroundings, including ocean views, foster the feeling of home. We welcome pets. Safety and security of residents are ensured with technology (motion detectors) and an exceptional staff to resident ratio of one to four.

Residents, joined by staff, are encouraged to engage with the outdoors and walk along the beautiful lane and oceanside. In our experience, exercise lowers the anxiety that often accompanies this illness, thereby lessening the use of medications.Johanna and Cheryl, together with support staff, provide compassionate care and support to eight residents and their families. Johanna provides professional counseling to families in transition. Timothy Howe, MD, a physician at nearby Parkview Hospital provides in-house medical care for residents of the Vicarage. He has many years of experience in Internal Medicine and provides expert care for our residents. He is on-call at all times and makes monthly house calls to oversee the medical health of each resident.
