Located on the campus of Jewish Association on Aging in Pittsburgh, AHAVA Memory Care Residence offers specialized memory care and personalized support complemented by an engaging lifestyle rich in dignity, fulfilling activities, and rewarding experiences.
Through the expert delivery of The Hearthstone Institute’s distinctive I’m Still Here® programming, residents thrive with this life-changing approach to memory care. I’m Still Here® recognizes that meaningful engagement not only increases quality of life, but also decreases the severity and frequency of symptoms commonly associated with memory challenges.
Building Relationships. Creating a Personalized Experience.
At the AHAVA Memory Care Residence at JAA, our team members are committed to getting to know our residents personally. We take the time to talk to them about their history and life story. We learn about their families, what they did for a living, what kind of music they like, and about their favorite pastimes.
By understanding each resident on a deeper level, we can create personalized care plans and offer enjoyable activities that include favorite hobbies and interests. With the I’m Still Here® philosophy, we are focused on replacing “busy work” with a full social life, new learning experiences, and group participation in various programs.
Understanding that each AHAVA Memory Care resident has retained abilities and personal preferences, I’m Still Here® offers three specialized Hearthstone programs. Each unique program features a different experience, based on the needs and activity level of the residents.
