The MJHS Memory Care Residence

As a leader in health care, MJHS Health System is designing a state-of-the-art residence dedicated to providing quality care that uses innovative therapies and memory-stimulating tools to add quality of life for residents living with Dementia.

Part of the Keys to Connection Campaign, the 80-bed residence will be located in Manhattan Beach Brooklyn at our Menorah Center for Rehabilitation and Nursing Care. The residence will also provide families with the opportunity to create meaningful connections with their loved on in a warm, caring and home-like environment. 

Our aim is to create a safe environment that will help residents reconnect with their passions and sense of identity as well as to provide family members with useful tools to help them engage with their loved ones.
