)-- The staff at Gurwin Jewish Nursing & Rehabilitation Center (Commack) was pleased to accept a New York State Assembly Citation from Assemblyman Andrew Raia for exemplary service to the community. Accepting the award for Gurwin was the Center's President and Chief Executive Officer Stuart B. Almer and Board Chairman Bert E. Brodsky.
The citation was presented during the 51st celebration of National Skilled Nursing Care Week, which also coincided with Gurwin's 30th anniversary. Formerly known as Nursing Home Week, the annual event recognizes the role that skilled nursing care centers provide in caring for America's seniors and those with disabilities.
This year's "Celebrating Life's Stories" theme paid homage to the diverse set of perspectives that residents, families and staff bring to everyday interactions. During the weeklong event, Gurwin residents participated in activities that highlighted significant events in their lives, some of which were shared on social media, and participated in special programming. Residents were delighted to spend time interacting with staff members, participating in activities such as trivia games and sporting events.
"We are very pleased to have been honored by Assemblyman Raia during National Skilled Nursing Week for the care provided to our short and long-term residents," said Almer. "Coming on the heels of Nurses Week, it was truly an honor for our nursing staff in particular to be recognized for their 'invaluable service to countless families throughout Long Island.' We are extremely proud of the efforts of each and every member of our talented and compassionate staff, all of whom are dedicated to improving the quality of life for those who turn to Gurwin for rehabilitation and for those who call Gurwin home."
In addition to honoring residents, the entire staff was recognized for their efforts in making Gurwin a 5-star facility, enjoying pampering with complimentary chair massages, and a variety of goodies and sweet treats throughout the week.
