The Woodside Memory 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 memory 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.
Every team member in our organization—from nursing and therapy to housekeeping and maintenance—receives dementia-specific training and is certified through CARES®, 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 412-826-5800 or contact us online.
