Woodside at Longwood of Oakmont, PA
The new look of dementia care.
Doctors and therapists are learning more and more about the subtle variations in diseases affecting memory, and the Longwood at Oakmont staff stays on top of the latest developments. Just look at our Woodside dementia care neighborhood, renovated in 2009 for an even higher level of privacy, security and family warmth - the elements a resident with dementia or Alzheimer’s needs to feel safe and valued. With 16 private rooms, beautiful common space and a secure outdoor courtyard, Woodside is an inviting environment.
Even more important, the care is focused and forward-thinking. Presbyterian SeniorCare Network, our nondenominational sponsor, trains its own staff to follow its own high standards. The emphasis is on the individual resident; our lifestyle engagement director emphasizes one-on-one activities. The therapeutic staff is skilled in advanced techniques, such as spotting the cues that signal the onset of negative behavior. They’re able to work proactively and positively with residents, supported by a visiting psychiatrist.
Woodside does accept direct admissions, based on availability. For details on our dementia care program, please call 1-877-842-0879 or contact us online.
