New England’s only Hearthstone-certified Center of Excellence for memory care

Caring for a person suffering from Alzheimer’s disease or dementia is never easy. Even harder is making the decision to have someone else care for them. It’s important to know they’ll be in good hands. Edgewood has been certified by the Hearthstone Foundation as a Center of Excellence for the third year in a row. We are one of only 10 Hearthstone-certified Centers of Excellence in the U.S. and the only one in New England.

Every member of Edgewood’s dedicated staff is trained in the Hearthstone Foundation’s “I’m Still Here”™ approach that employs the latest in memory care techniques to help create a calming, therapeutic environment.

The Meadows’ Garden View wing provides a warm, welcoming home-like environment with specialized memory care in a secure, thoughtfully designed environment. Special features include personalized memory boxes outside all rooms, a circular layout to allow residents to navigate freely and safely explore their surroundings, a family-style kitchen, and two outdoor courtyards.
