The Jewish Association on Aging's New Memory Care Center of Excellence – AHAVA Memory Care Residence

The Premier Resource for Alzheimer's and Dementia

As we learn more about Alzheimer's disease and related dementias, as treatments progress and as our understanding evolves, so too must the communities that provide memory care. After all, our loved ones deserve the very best.

Beginning Summer 2017, they can have it as The Jewish Association on Aging opens the most exceptional memory care residence in Pittsburgh. Our AHAVA Memory Care Residence is certified by The Hearthstone Institute as Pennsylvania’s first Memory Care Center of Excellence.

Combining the expertise of memory care specialists and care partners, the proven approach of a world-class program and interior design developed specifically for those with memory loss, AHAVA Memory Care Residence is truly singular.

The Hearthstone Way

After careful research and consideration, AHAVA Memory Care Residence has partnered with The Hearthstone Institute to provide the programming within our community. Founded in 1992 by internationally renowned memory care expert Dr. John Zeisel, Hearthstone has been a recognized leader in the field of Alzheimer's care for over twenty years. Its mission is to create residential environments where people living with Alzheimer's and related disorders can flourish.

I’m Still HereTM

As a Hearthstone Center of Excellence, AHAVA Memory Care Residence will implement Hearthstone’s distinctive I’m Still Here™ programming. This programming recognizes that meaningful engagement for our residents increases their quality of life and decreases the severity and frequency of symptoms commonly associated with memory challenges.

I’m Still Here™ replaces “busy work” with a rich social life, new learning experiences and group participation in varied and enjoyable activities.

AHAVA Memory Care Residence is in good company. Such prestigious senior living and Life Care communities as Charter House at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, MN and Edgewood in Andover, MA share our commitment to our residents and are Hearthstone Centers of Excellence as well.
