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 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

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

Stay safe, all!

Lisa Krawitz

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

Ann Marie Schneider

My husband, Jim, has been a resident of the Jewish Home since the spring of 2018. He is on the Memory Care floor. I can’t turn the clock back to restore Jim to the smart, loving, talented man I married almost fifty years ago. So the Jewish Home is the very best place he can be. He is well-loved and he is well-cared for and he is safe and content. I visit regularly and I see that each resident is always treated with loving warmth, courtesy, and respect. Many of the staff have worked at the Jewish Home for more than fifteen years and regard this work as their calling. Jim’s dementia is the tragedy of our lives. The Jewish Home is the blessing.

Peggie Hannan

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 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.
