The Woodside Dementia Care Neighborhood at Longwood in Oakmont in Oakmont, PA
Offering Individualized Care, Allowing Your Loved One to Live Each Day to the Fullest
At our Hanna HealthCare Center, the Woodside dementia care neighborhood provides individuals who need skilled nursing the latest and best in dementia care services. We offer private rooms which you and your loved one can personalize to help feel at home and safe. Our lovely common space, with a secure outdoor courtyard, allows each person to feel in control in a secure setting.
As part of the Presbyterian SeniorCare Network, which is known as a Dementia Care Center of Excellence, we ensure that each team member at every level of our organization is certified in dementia care through the National Alzheimer’s Association at the time of hire, and Woodside team members receive more hours of specialized training throughout their employment. Most importantly, our team is trained to understand each resident as an individual instead of a diagnosis.
Our specialized programming and care systems are extremely person-centered, allowing team members to “go into the world of the person with dementia” and support them in their reality. Montessori programming techniques are utilized to stimulate mental and physical activity and help each resident regain a sense of purpose. It’s Never 2 Late (iN2L), an adaptive technology system, engages residents with integrated features that connect them to people and content. Through the Music and Memory program, we provide personalized playlists on iPods, which help to rekindle positive memories and minimize anxiety and challenging behaviors.
Woodside at Longwood does accept direct admissions, based on availability. For details on our dementia care program, please call
