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.

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

Donna Mendicino

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

Thanks so much to all of you!

Kenneth Courtney

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

Ann Marie Schneider

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

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

 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

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

Mary Ellen Alfieri

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

Robin Lukasik

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

Thank you so much for the beautiful care and enrichment you bring to our loved ones’ lives each and every day, especially during these trying times.
