Harlem Center Green Space
Many thanks to former New York governor David Paterson, Assemblywoman Inez E. Dickens, and our guest of honor, Keith L.T. Wright, for their generous PPE donation and for attending/supporting the opening of the Harlem Center garden named in honor of Keith, a member of the New York State Assembly from 1993 to 2016.
Aside from providing a beautiful green space for our residents, renovations will include a vegetable garden for our residents to plant and farm on their own. Stay tuned for the finished product!

Deep-Seated Questions About Ageism
The coronavirus pandemic brought into the open some deep-seated questions about aging in America. The Allure Group’s COO Melissa Powell writes about the scourge of ageism and what to do about it, in a post that appeared on McKnight’s Long-Term Care News.
The Difference Tech is Making During the Pandemic
Melissa also writes, in a piece that ran on Healthcare Business Today, that technology’s impact has been felt in areas such as contact tracing and testing, as well as in the search for a vaccine. In addition, cognitive technology is capable of strengthening supply chains that have been frayed during the pandemic.
