The dementia neighborhoods at Phoebe Allentown were inspected by the Alzheimer’s Foundation of America and both neighborhoods met all standards. The annual inspection ensures that Phoebe continues to qualify as an Excellence in Dementia Care community as designated by the Alzheimer’s Foundation of America.
The inspector had many positive things to say throughout the day and was very impressed by the positive interactions between staff and residents in addition to the staff’s knowledge about each resident. Phoebe Ministries operates seven dedicated memory support communities that have achieved the Alzheimer’s Foundation of America’s Excellence in Care distinction. To date, the Alzheimer’s Foundation of America has awarded this distinction to 54 communities. Phoebe was the first organization in the country to achieve this distinction across all of its memory support communities. Phoebe was also the first organization in Pennsylvania to achieve this status, and currently operates seven of the fifteen communities statewide with the distinction, as of March 2016.
