We believe the opportunity to socialize and participate in stimulating activities contributes significantly to one’s overall health. At the Leavitt Family Jewish Home, our residents live in a warm and nurturing environment. Well-planned activities for aging seniors and those with memory loss can make a huge difference in one’s day-to-day quality of life. Residents, family members, friends and volunteers can often be found relaxing in the coffee shop, Michael’s Café or one of our outdoor gathering spaces.

Outstanding “Music & Memory” Program

The Leavitt Family Jewish Home is certified to implement the highly acclaimed “Music & Memory” program. This program has had tremendous success in reaching individuals with dementia where other methods have failed. Personalized music selections are compiled and placed on iPods; these musical favorites tap deep memories not lost to dementia. Even for persons with severe dementia, music can facilitate deep emotional recall. Since there is currently no cure for Alzheimer’s disease or dementia, we provide a memory care unit designed to maximize each individual’s potential and help them maintain existing functionality.
