What is Memory Care?

The Memory Care at Hebrew Rehabilitation Center, provides a continuum of care for residents with Alzheimer's disease or other related dementias. Based on Hebrew SeniorLife's philosophy of optimizing the living environments of residents, the unit focuses on residents' emotional, physical, social, environmental, intellectual, spiritual and vocational wellness. The Memory Care takes a holistic approach to managing residents with dementia. Our staff is trained to understand residents' unique behaviors and how to respond to them.

Who is a candidate for admission?

The primary diagnosis for admission is Alzheimer's disease or an associated type of dementia, along with presenting behavioral symptoms that cannot be effectively managed in a less structured environment.

What type of programming is offered?  

We offer the highest level of clinical care in order to address acute events in-house, minimizing the need to send residents to another environment for care. Onsite, we have board-certified geriatricians, a geriatric psychiatrist, nurses specializing in dementia care, a pharmacy, and a wide range of clinical therapy services so residents do not have to be transported out for these services.

In addition, we address residents' psychosocial needs, including anxiety and agitation, through creative arts and recreation therapy programs.

Is the staff trained specifically to care for patients with Alzheimer's and other related dementias? 

Our staff is trained in a habilitation approach to dementia care using the Caring for People with Alzheimer’s Disease: A Habilitation Training Curriculum created by the Alzheimer’s Association.

What role does family play in resident care on the unit?  

Family members are an important part of our interdisciplinary care team, and special emphasis is placed on recognizing and responding to the needs of family members of residents with dementia. A Family Advisory Council meets monthly to examine policies, programming and procedures on the unit.
