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.

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

Ann Marie Schneider

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

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

Count me in as a big fan and supporter of the Jewish Home of Eastern PA. I have been familiar with its work and service to the community since I was Mayor of Scranton.

Jim Connors, former Mayor of Scranton

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.

Carmel Courtney Garan

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

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 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

Thank you to all of the staff for everything you do. It’s a difficult job, but you are always so kind and understanding when I call to ask about my mother. I miss being able to visit her but know she’s in good hands. And a special shout-out to the staff on the 5th floor!

Ellen McGuire

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