Spotlight on Alzheimer’s Care Communities in Pennsylvania & New Jersey

By Michelle Seitzer / Posted on 03 June 2011

Alzheimer’s care (or memory care) is available at most assisted living facilities and many continuing care retirement communities (CCRCs) across the country; there are even a few Alzheimer’s care communities that are independent, stand-alone facilities that specialize in Alzheimer’s care only, caring for individuals through all stages of the disease.  Many of these senior communities also provide care for those with related dementias and other cognitive/memory disorders besides Alzheimer’s. Today, we’ll focus on a few of these communities in PA & NJ:

Located in the Cheswick countryside with easy access to Pittsburgh, Sunrise of Fox Chapel provides Alzheimer’s care and hospice housing only. Sunrise’s Reminiscence care program is tailored to caring for those with memory disorders and is offered at this community.

Country Meadows Retirement Communities have been family-owned & operated for nearly 50 years. Find this provider’s signature Connections Memory Support Program at Country Meadows of Hershey and other campuses throughout the Northeast.

New Jersey
Join Their Journey is the innovative memory care program offered at all Emeritus senior living communities, and you’ll find it at Emeritus at Wayne in northern New Jersey, where assisted living and short-term/respite options are also available. Pets are welcome at this Alzheimer’s care community.

A Sunrise Senior Living community with convenient access to the Garden State Parkway & NJ Turnpike, Brighton Gardens of Edison includes a specially designed Reminiscence neighborhood for residents with Alzheimer’s and related dementias.
