UPMC Senior Communities offers memory care services in both personal care and skilled nursing and rehabilitation settings. We can help you determine the best setting based upon the individual’s physical needs and extent of memory impairment.
Staff members receive ongoing training to provide the best quality of life for individuals with memory impairment while also tending to residents’ additional physical, emotional and social needs. Attentive medical and personal care and meaningful activity are informed by UPMC’s expertise in geriatric and memory care. We use a person-centered therapy that utilizes non-verbal communication techniques to improve interactions with those living with Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia.
We provide a secure home-like environment that supports inclusion while encouraging personalized space.
