Memory Care Scranton and Wilkes-Barre

Skilled Nursing Care for Alzheimer’s & Other Dementias

Memory care is designed to provide a safe, structured environment with set routines to lower stress for people with Alzheimer's or dementia. Allied Services Scranton Skilled Nursing offers a dedicated memory care unit with long-term, short-term, and respite care. The memory care unit in Scranton specializes in treating individuals with Alzheimer’s disease and other senior dementias. The program stresses the importance of improving and maintaining the quality of life for its residents.

Combining Skilled Nursing with Memory Care

While nursing homes provide 24/7 skilled nursing care, memory care facilities offer a safe, structured environment that’s specially designed to protect residents against wandering and self-harm. People who require a higher level of support than what is offered in assisted living, or who have advanced dementia that makes it unsafe to remain at home, may find that memory care is their best long-term care option. Memory care residents are generally free of any major health concerns aside from Alzheimer’s or dementia, but they can no longer safely live in their own homes.

Our memory care program maintains a high staff-to-patient ratio. We go to great lengths to ensure every resident is cared for by compassionate, experienced, and trusted professionals who are committed to helping patients. Family members and loved ones are encouraged to visit during appropriate hours, and our staff is always happy to answer questions about a resident’s well-being.

Memory Care Services

The memory care unit at our Scranton Skilled Nursing offers round-the-clock nursing care and additional services including:

  • Group and individual therapeutic recreational programming, such as brain games that are specifically designed to slow the progression of memory loss.
  • Assistance with activities of daily living, including dressing, grooming and transferring.
  • Exercise, physical therapy, occupational therapy, speech therapy, music therapy and cognitive therapy, sensory stimulation programs.
  • Anti-wandering systems such as WanderGuard.

Holistic Care Approach

Witnessing a loved one develop the symptoms of dementia is not easy. We know people want the best for their loved ones, so we use a holistic care model focused on mind, body, and spirit. Our facility provides many services to help residents feel comfortable and at ease in new surroundings. Moving into a memory care facility can be frightening at first. We encourage families to tour our facilities before deciding so they can help ease the transition for their loved ones should they entrust their care with us.
