Memory Care Centers in Boston and at NewBridge

Advanced Memory Care for Late-Stage Dementia

Hebrew Rehabilitation Center’s ability to care for seniors with late-stage dementia, including Alzheimer’s disease, is a step above that of a standard nursing home. Our long-term chronic care license allows us to employ our own physicians, and offer more nurses and care associates per patient. And between our Harvard Medical School affiliation and our Deanna and Sidney Wolk Center for Memory Health at Hebrew SeniorLife, seniors and their families can have peace of mind knowing they are getting the best care.

Hebrew Rehabilitation Center in both Boston and Dedham offers two types of memory support households. Our “memory friendly” households are designed for older adults with dementia who can benefit from a medical environment. Our “memory support” households offer that same environment, but within a secure unit for enhanced safety.

Our care team helps people with advanced Alzheimer’s disease and other late-stage dementias feel safe and stimulated, while maintaining a connection to community. We deliver personalized care, built on an understanding of each person’s life history and interests. This enables us to help strengthen and prolong each patient’s physical and cognitive abilities as much as possible.

On behalf of my family, I want to express our gratitude for the exceptional care our father received on the Memory Support Unit. It was here where my dad thrived and blossomed even as his disease progressed and his function declined. There was always a demonstration of warmth, love, and respect towards our dad. The quality of care our dad received was exceptional and the quality of his life these past two years was full and engaging. Please know that we greatly appreciate all of you—you are just incredible. – Family Member
