I am a friend or relative of a resident

My grandmother stayed at Ruths house for approx 1.5 years. Ruth's House has a special "Garden Level," an assisted living area specifically for individuals with dementia and Alzheimers. My grandmother was a Garden Level resident from 2008-2009, and during this time was mostly very happy. Facilities were clean and a daily schedule of activities was posted for residents to partake in every day, including music, beading, television, etc. The food was kosher, healthy and delicious. When the primary RN Jackie R left in 2009, however, the facility went downhill. The woman hired to take her place was much less compassionate with my grandmother and other residents. Where Jackie's approach was very personal and hands on, the new RN seemed interested most primarily in weeding out any "less than perfect" residents from the facility, which is highly contrary to the point of a "dementia wing." Most dementia patients suffer from incontinence, impulsive aggression, etc. We removed my grandmother from Ruths House at that time.

About Ruth's House

Here, we believe independence is important, and our residents remain in charge of their own schedules. But they can rest assured knowing that our highly trained team is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week, to provide individualized care and assistance if needed.

On-site nurses provide wellness programs, medication reminders and telemedicine. Ruth’s House is also pleased to provide, “The Garden Level,” a separate, secure neighborhood, specifically designed and staffed to meet the needs of residents with early- to mid-stage Alzheimer’s disease and related memory impairments. JGS Lifecare’ Music and Memory Program is also available to Garden Level residents.

We offer both private and companion suites that can be decorated and personalized with your belongings, as well as inviting dining and social areas. We have a full calendar of social, cultural, and multi-denominational religious programming. All of this comes together to create a warm and inviting atmosphere that helps promote a strong sense of community for both residents and staff.

What Makes Us Special

Ruth’s House is a beautiful, homelike residence for seniors of all faiths who may require assistance with day-to-day living activities. Set on JGS Lifecare’ Harry and Jeanette Weinberg Campus in Longmeadow, Ruth’s House is surrounded by lovely landscaped grounds and private walkways.
