Seniors with Alzheimer’s disease or related dementia require a secure, structured and nurturing setting. The Memory Care Unit at the Gurwin Jewish Nursing & Rehabilitation Center is a 60-bed, secure, first floor unit staffed with specially-trained clinical, therapeutic recreation and other professional personnel who understand the unique healthcare needs and behavioral challenges that accompany cognitive impairment; the compassionate, person-centered care our staff provides enhances the quality of life of our residents, helping them to feel safe, secure and oriented in their environment.
The Gurwin Memory Care unit boasts an enclosed outdoor garden courtyard, perfect for guided activities such as gardening, picnicking and strolling. Dedicated Recreation Leaders provide innovative programming for small group or individual activities, designed to reduce feelings of confusion, fear and agitation as well as offer enjoyable activities that stimulate the mind and body. Dietary needs are addressed appropriately, offering finger foods and access to food throughout the day, rather than expecting participation in a traditional meal setting.
