Memory Care at AHAVA

At AHAVA Memory Care Residence on the campus of Pittsburgh’s Jewish Association on Aging, we understand the unique challenges presented by Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of dementia. Every one of our residents deserves – and receives – personalized care within our licensed assisted living community that meets individual needs and supports individual abilities.

We respect that no two people in our care will be at the same place on this journey. Our specially trained care partners deliver individualized care that is as unique as the resident. We are engaged, watching for the slightest change in each resident. We use a healthy lifestyle, art and music therapies, exercise, nutrition, and partnerships with physicians to prevent and treat medical problems.

Delivered with expertise as well as compassion and dignity, this is care from the heart that has the potential to change lives – for the better. We care for our residents as if they were our family. It’s not only our purpose; it’s our passion.

The Advantage of an Assisted Living Special Care Residence

AHAVA Memory Care Residence is one of only two licensed assisted living special care residences for people with memory impairment in southwest PA. What does that mean to you and your loved one? Complete peace of mind.

As a licensed assisted living special care residence, in most cases, we can care for our residents for the rest of their lives through the ability to provide supplemental health services when needed. Families don’t have to worry about the stress of moving to another care provider as their loved ones’ health needs change over time.

This advantage is unique in Pennsylvania; other local memory care residences are licensed to provide personal care. As such regulations limit the amount of care they can provide. Residents with advanced needs may experience the disruption and inconvenience of moving to another community licensed to provide the higher level of care they need.

That’s not the case at AHAVA Memory Care Residence. As a licensed assisted living community, our families can rest assured knowing that the care, comfort, quality and familiarity offered within our walls are theirs for as long as needed.
