Gurwin Jewish Nursing & Rehabilitation Center’s Adult Day Care Program has retained its title as “Long Island’s Best in Adult Day Care,” marking the second year in a row, third year overall, that the program has been recognized for excellence in caring for frail, elderly, and cognitively challenged residents on Long Island.
“We are so pleased to be honored once again with the Best of Long Island title,” said Jeraldine Fedoriw, LMSW, director of the Gurwin Adult Day Care Program. “Our talented and dedicated staff works diligently to create a sense of community and facilitate bonds with and among our registrants. A broad range of activities are planned throughout the day — such as crafts, exercise, dancing, and music — which help program registrants build relationships, enhance their self-esteem, and validate their abilities.”
Since 1989, Gurwin’s Adult Day Care program has been supporting the physical, social, and emotional needs of individuals with varying health and cognitive challenges. Program registrants are entitled to a variety of medical care services such as dental care, ophthalmology, audiology, rehabilitation therapy, assistance with activities of daily living, and socialization programs.
Participants receive safe door-through-door transportation to and from Gurwin’s facility. Following morning pickup from their home, registrants are provided a well-balanced breakfast and are guided through a structured day of engaging activities, helping them to flourish in a safe, secure, and enriching environment.
While the program offers a full day of care for registrants, it has the added benefit of providing caregivers respite from their demanding and often overwhelming caregiving duties, and peace of mind knowing their loved one is in the hands of a compassionate and nurturing staff.
