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 will never forget the peanut butter and jelly sandwich on my brother’s lunch and dinner tray for “later.” I will never forget the white hand towels mounted on his bed for him to fold. I will never forget his clean clothes and his clean bed waiting for him to rest his weary head and his failing body.

Maureen Bell Asterbadi

It was at the Jewish Home where my brother’s physical and emotional needs were met. Because his vocal skills were compromised, he communicated through touch. The staff always returned his hug, kisses on the hand, or handshake willingly, and called him by name. I will never forget how this touched me when I first saw these exchanges. 

Maureen Bell Asterbadi

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

Thank you, everyone!

Mary Beth Mikolayczak

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 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

Thanks so much to all of you!

Kenneth Courtney

As a medical professional, I can attest to the excellence of the care and the organization in the seven years my mother was resident.

Joe Finetti

What a beautiful home for the elderly!

BK Anderson

 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 miss seeing my parents. Thank you for keeping them safe.
