The New Jewish Home is an established leader in creating specialized Alzheimer’s Disease/Dementia communities. There are dementia communities within our residential skilled nursing homes at our Manhattan and Westchester campuses.

Our dementia special care communities are based on the concept that environment is perhaps the most significant factor affecting the daily lives of Alzheimer’s and dementia patients.

The dementia community provides space that is:

  • secure
  • comforting
  • non-threatening

It offers familiar frames of reference, reduces confusion and permits the freedom to move about in a safe, unrestricted space.

Within each community, staff create programs designed to:

  • promote each resident’s abilities
  • minimize the stress that can aggravate confusion
  • maximize physical and cognitive capabilities

Communities offer group therapy sessions to promote wellness and decrease behavioral disturbances. Music, visual imagery, exercise and other techniques stimulate senses and foster a positive sense of empowerment for residents.

Arts and alternative therapies such as: yoga, tai-chi, aroma therapy, music, art and drama therapy are used extensively in a holistic approach to caring.

Staff, family members and caregivers are invited to take part in programs offered in the Alzheimer’s Disease/Dementia Special Care communities.
