Pheasant Run Alzheimer’s Special Care Center is now open to provide its unique brand of memory care for families in South Jordan and surrounding areas. 

Part of JEA Senior Living, Pheasant Run Alzheimer’s Special Care Center brings the proven Meaningful Moments® program to Salt Lake County for the first time, allowing people to experience their commitment to understanding and meeting individual resident’s needs.

JEA Senior Living founder Jerry Erwin knows from personal experience the need for top care for those loved ones who fall into the destructive hands of Alzheimer’s disease, dementia and other memory disorders. His mother, Margaret, struggled with Alzheimer’s for seven years. With this inspiration, Erwin created a unique system of memory care communities. 

The Meaningful Moments® program demands that staff learn about the life of whom they care for. They will also learn about the unique physical and cognitive needs of the residents to provide customized care plans to address “social, emotional, mental and spiritual needs.”

The specialized care provided at Pheasant Run begins with thoughtful building design and décor. From there we add caring, well-trained, professional staff and our proven dementia-care program: Meaningful Moments® program is exclusive to JEA and is built on a commitment to understand and meet individual resident’s needs.

As a part of the Meaningful Moments® program, the caring staff of Pheasant Run will learn about your loved one’s life story and will develop a unique care plan to meet physical and cognitive needs thus providing individualized, holistic care.

“We know from experience that past patterns create comfort, therefore, we rely on partnerships with families to help us learn how best to meet resident needs,” said the Pheasant Run webpage. 

With 45 facilities in 15 states, JEA Senior Living Special Care Centers come to a community with a track record of concerned and personalized care.

The facility opened on Sept. 14 and celebrated with an open house for the community on Oct. 26 at 2664 West 11400 South, South Jordan.  

Those seeking assistance with a loved one in need of memory care are invited to call (801) 260-0007 to learn more about Pheasant Run.
