The Sarah Daft Home is the only nonprofit assisted living facility, dedicated to affordable, quality care in a homelike setting. For over 100 years, the Sarah Daft Home has been committed to providing affordable, high quality care in a homelike setting. Our 24-hour community is staffed with compassionate, skilled professionals devoted to meeting the individual needs of each resident.
Residents first, not profits The Sarah Daft Home is a nonprofit organization, meaning that we are for the people, not the shareholders. Leadership and staff works together with residents, engaging with each person individually. All decisions are made by those who are most connected to the lives that are affected – not some corporate office offsite or in another state.
Interdisciplinary team care is known to improve the overall health of older adults. The Family Medicine Residency Program at the Department of Family and Preventive Medicine, University of Utah School of Medicine, has established a medical clinic and training site for family medicine residents at the Sarah Daft Home. The clinic is interdisciplinary and consists of team members and physician assistants from geriatrics, family medicine, pharmacy, nutrition and gerontology. The clinic is held three times per month and offers Sarah Daft Home residents the opportunity to have their care provided on site rather than needing to travel to other health care providers. Family Medicine is dedicated to providing older adults with comprehensive medical care, along with an understanding of chronic diseases and the patient’s desire for the highest quality of life possible.
