During Saturday's festivities, Bristol House celebrated one of our new residents, Mani, who is 99 years young!
Mani is also our first resident. She has enjoyed the attention of the staff as well as being in the brand new community.
Bristol House Memory Care is now accepting residents. If you would like to tour our building and meet the staff, we invite you to call 215-491-1501. Our community is conveniently located just off Route 611 south of Doylestown and several miles north of Warminster. We are specially equipped and trained to handle the unique needs of those with Alzheimer's, dementia and other cognitive impairments.
At Bristol House Memory Care, we want to make as many Alzheimer's and dementia resources known to the community as possible. Below is a family / caregivers support group sponsored by Doylestown Hospital for caregivers in charge of caretaking those with cognitive impairment.

Few families in Doylestown, Warrington or surrounding areas in Bucks County have been unscathed by Alzheimer’s disease or other forms of dementia. It is a disease that begins subtly and slowly robs the individual of cognition and memory, all while preserving physical function and outward appearance. Losing one’s intellect is terrible, but the real travesty is the personality transformation and inability to sustain the loving relationships that make life so precious. Dementia makes one physically close and mentally distant.
