Alissa Sauer

Caring for a family member with dementia can be a challenging journey for anyone. Finding a memory care community that understands the unique needs of individuals with dementia is crucial for their well-being and quality of life. From the expertise of our Memory Care Manager to our signature programs inspired by world-renowned expert Teepa Snow, and our focus on creating an environment where residents and their families can find rest and restoration, Murano Senior Living’s memory care is a beacon of support and compassion. 

Meet our Memory Care Manager: Erin Staadecker

At Murano Senior Living, Erin Staadecker leads the dedicated team that understands the complexities of dementia care. With 12 years of experience working with individuals with dementia, Erin brings a wealth of knowledge and compassion to her role. She believes in truly understanding both the disease and the human being behind it to find the best ways for residents to express themselves. Erin aims to destigmatize dementia and spread awareness, ensuring that individuals living with dementia receive the respect and love they deserve.

“It is equally important to understand the disease as it is to understand the individual so that we have the best opportunity for people living with dementia to be known, express themselves, and be supported as things change over timeOften people avoid or deny a dementia diagnosis because there is stigma, mystery, and fear surrounding it. Fifty-five percent of people who have dementia are never diagnosed; they never receive dementia-informed care and four out of five families fall apart. It’s our privilege to shine a light, educate, spread awareness, and destigmatize the condition to bring restoration to family relationships and peace for those living with it. The right setting, combined with the right approach, allows our residents to shine.” – Erin Staadecker

Under Erin’s leadership, her team boasts a remarkable 93% satisfaction rating, a testament to the exceptional care provided at Murano Senior Living.

Murano’s signature Memory Care program, Opal by Leisure Care®, is enriched by the expertise of Teepa Snow, a renowned Occupational Therapist with 40 years of clinical practice in dementia care. Teepa’s approach emphasizes that dementia does not rob individuals of their dignity; it is our reaction to them that does. Our Opal Manager, Erin, is a Certified Independent Trainer with Teepa Snow’s organization, Positive Approach® to Care, bringing this care philosophy to life in our Opal neighborhood every day.

Her programs for caregivers focus on adding meaning to the day through four key aspects: feeling productive and valued, leisure, self-care, and restorative activities. By understanding the physical changes that occur in the brain with dementia, Teepa helps caregivers and staff provide individualized care that meets the unique needs of each resident.
