Memory Care Resources

A memory loss diagnosis is hard on everyone. Below are videos from our previous educational events that can help those diagnosed with memory loss, and their families learn the next steps to take for the future. We hope you find these videos informative and enlightening. Please reach out to our staff members with questions about caring for loved ones with dementia.

cognitive center

The Cognitive Center of Excellence designation recognizes organizations who are committed to integration of the BCAT® Approach as the standard of care to meet the cognitive needs of the aging adult. Organizations with this level of recognition have a shared philosophy with BCAT® that it is imperative to utilize evidence-based assessments, treatment interventions, and patient engagement activities that are administered by trained staff in order to care manage and maximize functional abilities for those with age related cognitive changes and cognitive decline.


I know how hard all the staff work to provide the highest quality of care for the residents. This is a very difficult time for the residents, staff, and families, and I am keeping you in my thoughts and prayers.

Charlene Luzio

Thank you so much for your tender loving care to my mother. I cried all the way home when she was admitted there in the Fall of 2018 as I thought it would be the last time I would see her alive. She was very ill at that time. What a difference a year makes, especially under your superb care to her! The last time I visited, she told me she is very happy there. She has a group of friends and loves the food (she is a picky eater so this statement says volumes) It makes my heart happy to see how engaged she is and how much time she spends outside her room. Having cared for her for 5 years and as an RN, I know what a challenge this can be. I really appreciate all you do to lovingly care for her. You cannot imagine the peace of mind it gives me. Thank you so much!

Daughter of a Resident

Thank you to all staff at the Jewish Home.The Jewish Home has a wonderful heart for giving. The Home runs graceful because of teamwork of all the departments.

Robert Warfe

Stay safe, all!

Lisa Krawitz

We were very impressed with the care our dear friend received at the Jewish Home. She came to the Jewish Home to receive rehabilitation services however she did end up needing end of life care. The staff were compassionate and gave superb care to our friend. The staff are wonderful. We would recommend the Jewish Home!

Janice and Harris Cutler

I think what your organization is doing is a great thing. My aunt called me and told me what a great time she had at St. Ann’s Novena today. I think sending the residents to the Novena is such a great thing to honor a tradition. Thank you.

Tammy Tomchak

Like everyone always says, we are family. Everyone is doing a great job.

Mary Ellen Alfieri

My sister and brothers and I  are very blessed with a caring and loving third-floor staff who treat our Mom as if she was their family member.  They hug her, they dance with her, they reminisce with her,  they are kind and patient with her.  She doesn’t always participate in activities however the activities staff continually try to engage her. Recently Leaha, activities staff member, knowing our Mom enjoyed the outdoors, took her outside to enjoy a few hours of sunshine!  As Mom would say “today was a good day.” That was a good day for our Mom!

Marykate Gallagher & Family

I will always remember the ease with which our family spent the last three nights with our brother, Tim, with pillows, blankets all provided to us with love. I will always remember Kathy’s warm smile as she called us by name.

Maureen Bell Asterbadi

After touring several nursing homes in the New York area where I live, I made the decision to place my mother in the Jewish Home in Scranton where I was raised.

Wendy Barker, Armonk, NY

Thanks for all you do and for keeping us informed! It means so much to me to be able to Facetime my mom every day. Thank you for setting this up! It means a lot to our families.
