The Gurwin Family of Healthcare Services of Commack was named the 2019 Best of Long Island winner in four health and wellness categories: Rehabilitation Centers, Assisted Living, Health Aides and Adult Day Care. This is the third consecutive BOLI win for the Gurwin adult day care programs.

“We are very honored to have been voted by the Long Island community as the Best of Long Island in four of the main services we provide,” said Stuart B. Almer, Gurwin’s president and chief executive officer. “Our mantra at Gurwin is to care for each resident as if they were our own loved one. The BOLI awards recognize our exceptional programs and the skillful, compassionate care our staff provides, whether in Gurwin’s nursing and rehabilitation center, assisted living facility, in our Adult Day Care program or as part of our home care program.”

Commenting on the trifecta win for Adult Day Care, program Director Jeraldine Fedoriw said, “The BOLI award is a testament to the person-centered care our team provides for each of the 130 individuals who attend our Adult Day Health Program on a daily basis. Their concern and compassion is evident in the engaging activities they create to promote socialization, the personal and medical attention they provide, and the hot meals and nutritious snacks they prepare. We are grateful to be recognized by Long Islanders with the BOLI award for the third consecutive year for the work we do to help our program participants continue to live in the community.”

Sponsored by Bethpage Federal Credit Union and published by Long Island Press, the annual BOLI awards recognize the top local businesses and organizations selected through a tally of more than one million votes cast by Long Islanders.
