Memory Care

Everything that science has learned about making life fulfilling and comfortable for individuals living with dementia is implemented here.

The new Woodside Place at Manchester Commons follows the standard-setting Woodside Place model we pioneered at Woodside Place in Pittsburgh. Today, over 70 communities around the world are replicating this model. For those individuals requiring skilled nursing and dementia care, we’ve implemented appropriate aspects of this approach in our Skilled Nursing neighborhoods. We are the only memory support community in Erie offering a full continuum of care, with memory care at both the Personal Care and Skilled Nursing levels.

The beauty and comfort of the accommodations at the new Woodside Place of Erie is equaled only by the quality of the care that our residents receive. Our “person-centered” model gives them considerable freedom of choice in their daily schedules, lets them enjoy a variety of activities and exercise programs, and provides myriad opportunities for social interaction.

Every member of our staff has received dementia-specific training and is well-versed in the tools we use to provide residents with the latest technologically sophisticated, quality programming. Health care is under the supervision of a licensed nursing team.

The Woodside Place model is in large part so successful because it fosters a high level of interaction between residents and the direct care team. This is enormously beneficial to our residents and professionally rewarding to our staff. It makes for a warm, friendly, and constructive environment.
