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.

Thanks all! The pics help when we can’t see our loved ones!

Gerianne Barber

I will always remember the maintenance man hooking up my brother’s TV that weekend evening…”no problem.” I will always remember Claudia’s patient, empathetic and kind manner. I will always remember the kitchen sending up carafes of hot coffee, cold drinks and snacks.

Maureen Bell Asterbadi

Thank you all for everything you do and keeping my Dad safe. ❤️

Robin Lukasik

Words cannot express my heartfelt appreciation for the unwavering care provided for my mother during her residency at The Jewish Home. 

Donna Mendicino

It is impossible to say thank you for all the love and caring compassion you showed to our mother, Dorothy Bouselli.

Roseann and Vince Arnone

Thanks so much to all of you!

Kenneth Courtney

 We have been delighted with the wonderful care Mom has received at the JH. It’s especially impressive that staff from every department, whether it be social services, medical staff, therapy staff or dietary, know Mom by name and give her a big greeting whenever they see her. We have witnessed this personal touch exhibited time and again by the wonderful staff who provide for the residents’ needs with respect, care and compassion. Mom is happy and content, and for this we are grateful.

Mike Hanley and Claire Walsh

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

I know no one who is more deserving of moments of relaxation and peace than the incredible team at the Jewish Home. Thanks for all that you do!

Ann Courtney Frisbie

I went to the Jewish Home because it has a great reputation. I had the best experience with therapy! I loved my physical therapy. Staff and accommodations were just great. I would recommend them to others.

Rosemary Gallagher

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.
