Welcome to Lincoln Glen -- A Caring Community for Seniors

Sunflowers offer a cheerful welcome to Lincoln Glen Manor

NESTLED AMONG SIX ACRES in San Jose's Willow Glen neighborhood, Lincoln Glen Manor is dedicated to enhancing the lives of seniors by providing four levels of care.

Conceived in 1965 by the Lincoln Glen Church Congregation, Lincoln Glen Manor was built in 1969. At that time, the community felt a responsibility to care for their seniors. Thus, the concept of Lincoln Glen Manor was instituted as a caring community for seniors adjacent to Lincoln Glen Church. Today, Lincoln Glen Manor provides four levels of care for seniors.

Perhaps you are a senior citizen desiring to scale down your lifestyle from a large family home to a cozy caring community? Or maybe you are at the stage of life where you require a little help with daily activities? Possibly you are in the need of daily nursing care? Perhaps your loved one is struggling with Alzheimer's Disease or dementia? Whatever your stage of life, Lincoln Glen Manor is the optimum choice for enhancing the lives of seniors by providing independent living, assisted living and skilled nursing care.

New Memory Program - Music and Memory

Music and Memory Image and LinkLincoln Glen is proud to announce Music and Memory, a new program for residents of the Nursing facility and those who live in Sunshine Alley, our newest facility for residents who have memory impairments. Lincoln Glen activities staff have been trained and certified to "set up personalized music playlists, delivered on iPods, for residents in our care. These musical favorites tap deep memories not lost to dementia and can bring participants back to life, enabling them to feel like themselves again, to converse, socialize and stay present."

Music and Memory's work is "rooted in extensive neuroscience research. The results can be nothing short of miraculous."

Here's what NPR Science Friday has to say: "Why do musical memories linger long after other memories have faded? That question is at the heart of a new documentary, Alive Inside, which looks at the effects of music on people living with Alzheimer’s and other age-related dementias. Film subjects Oliver Sacks and Dan Cohen explain why music acts as a backdoor to memory and share tips for enjoying music with the elders in your life. Tapping Into Musical Memory.

In addition, here is a link testifying to the benefit of the Music and Memory on You Tube.
