Commack, NY - Assisted Living, Nursing Home, Independent Living, CCRC
Since 1988, Gurwin has been a leader in providing the highest quality care and caring to our Long Island community. As we celebrate our 30th year of service, it’s a good time to reflect on our many past accomplishments, and to look forward to new initiatives that will further enhance the lives of Long Island seniors.
What began as a small “mom and pop” nursing home has now grown to include a full continuum of healthcare services, including a 5-star, 460-bed nursing and rehabilitation center providing long-term care, short-term rehabilitation, ventilator and respiratory care in a 28-bed Respiratory Care Unit, an Advanced Care Unit, Alzheimer’s/dementia care in a 60-bed Memory Care Unit, palliative and hospice care, medical and social adult day care programs and on-site dialysis. Rounding out the continuum of care is our 201-bed Assisted Living Community; Gurwin’s two Home Care programs and Fountaingate Gardens, our proposed 230-apartment independent housing complex.
At Gurwin, we have always been proud to provide comfort to those who entrust their loved ones to us. Our outstanding staff provides the highest quality care and constantly demonstrates compassion to those we serve. Every staff member is imbued with a commitment to treat the members of our communities as if they were their very own family member, and that feeling of genuine caring is part of what makes Gurwin unique.
