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

I am Emily. I’m attending the Friday morning breakfast club. One of my favorite activities. Usually, about two dozen or more people come. We have choices of different foods – cooked in the life enrichment kitchen.  The aroma of the food cooking draws everyone in! I look forward all week to this group. I put my clothes out the night before. I wait for someone to help me in the morning and I get up extra early – much earlier than other days! I wait for someone to say “Time to go!” Pancakes, French toast, fresh fruit, eggs, all different choices. But the best thing is sitting around with your friends at the breakfast club after you eat, in the room that smells so good, enjoying the company and your tea or coffee! Come join us at the Jewish Home!

Emily

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

Mary Ellen Alfieri

I will never forget the easy access you gave to our friend to visit my brother every day and take him to the sun and beyond with her words of wisdom and memories shared. I will never forget Nicole’s calls keeping me updated at all times and Sherrie’s tears as she prepared to say her last goodbye to her new friend. I will never forget the dignity and respect shown to Tim all day, every day.

Maureen Bell Asterbadi

Thank you to everyone caring for the patients. Couldn’t ask for a better facility. 

Nicolle Bryan Phillips

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

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

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

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

I love reading the residents’ messages. Keep them coming. You do a great job!

Ann Marie Schneider
