WATERFRONT ADULT DAY HEALTHCARE GRAND OPENING
We are very excited to launch The Waterfront, an adult day healthcare program, tailored towards seniors who can benefit from participating in a variety of group activities, as well as those seeking individualized medical care.
The grand opening of The Waterfront at our King David Center was an unforgettable evening. From the food, to the entertainment, to the kind words said throughout the night, we couldn’t have asked for a better start to this exciting new chapter with The Waterfront. A special thank you to our guest performer, singer Shulem Lemmer.
To everyone who made this event happen and to everyone who joined us for the ribbon cutting ceremony and celebrations, we thank you. This evening was a huge success because of you!
The Allure Group Centers Receive Quality Initiative Recognition Awards from the AHCA/NCAL
We would like to congratulate our Bedford Center, Linden Center, Harlem Center, Crown Heights Center, Hamilton Park Center and King David Center for receiving Quality Initiative Recognition Awards from the American Health Care Association/National Center for Assisted Living (AHCA/NCAL)!

Bedford Center Raising Money for “Victims of Philippines Taal Volcano Relief fund”
Some 6,000 families were displaced when the Taal volcano erupted on Jan. 12 in the Philippines, and subsequent ash ejections — as well as the threat of another large-scale eruption — have precluded the return of those people to the four villages that were affected.
Maria, our wonderful DNS at the Bedford Center, is intimately involved with a GoFundMe Fundraiser called “Victims of Philippines Taal Volcano Relief fund,” which was established by a group of medical professionals to provide supplies for those who were displaced. We hope many more of us from the Allure family give to this cause, which can be accessed here. Every small contribution helps!
Congratulations to Harlem Center Medical Director, Raji Ayinla, MD, CMD
The Allure Group congratulates our very own Harlem Center Medical Director, Raji Ayinla, MD, CMD for getting certified as a Certified Medical Director (CMD) in Post-Acute and Long-Term Care through the American Board of Post-Acute and Long-Term Care Medicine (ABPLM)!
We are proud of his achievement on being among more than 5,500 physicians nationwide who have received the CMD designation since the program’s inception in 1991. This program recognizes the dual nature of skills needed to contribute to a nursing home’s quality of care and empowers medical directors with a unique blend of medical and management competence. We and our residents are grateful to count you as a member of the Allure family.
Lunar new year celebrations at our crown heights and bedford centers
Our residents and staff had a wonderful time celebrating Lunar New Year at our King David, Bedford and Crown Heights Centers. Here’s wishing everyone a joyous and prosperous Year of the Rat! All residents and families left with big smiles from great dining and watching fun-filled entertainment. The dragon dancing got our residents on their feet and made everyone really enjoy the music! Thanks so much to everyone who helped to put on these fun events.
Bedford Center Holds Painting Class
Miriam from Pick-A-Color hosted a painting class with our residents at Bedford Center. Everyone had their own unique take on Frosty the snowman! Activities like this have been found to have multiple benefits for seniors, like aiding in relaxation and socialization and improving cognition and self-esteem.
Linden Center Stages New Year’s Eve Fashion Show
Strike a pose! Linden Center residents enjoyed a fun fashion show on New Year’s Eve, before ringing in 2020. We love to see our residents participating in fun events like these that give them the chance to enjoy themselves and show off their unique personalities.
Hamilton Park Hosts Salvation Army
Thank you to The Salvation Army for visiting our residents at the Hamilton Park Center! We enjoyed a day filled with musical and dance performances. It was a wonderful day!
The band that entertained the residents is one of 2,500 sponsored around the globe by The Salvation Army, an organization founded in London in 1865. According to Caringmagazine.org, the first band was founded in 1882, when a man named Charles Frye and his sons offered to serve as bodyguards for Salvation Army street preachers. To pass the time the Fryes played brass instruments, and before long became the first leaders of the Army’s musical arm.
Linden Center NYPD Hosts Zero Tolerance Program
Thanks to the team of NYPD officers who visited Linden Center to educate our residents about the Zero Tolerance Program, which dates back to the 1990s. This program was enacted in an attempt to reduce youth violence, drug dealing, domestic violence and auto-related crime.
It was our honor to host a group that does so much for the community. We learned so much and had a great time doing it!
From Our Blog: How to Help Seniors Get the Most Out of Day Trips
Taking seniors on a day trip is not just a walk in the park — though goodness knows, that’s far from a bad thing. There is much more to it than that. Much more in the way of challenges, and much more in the way of benefits.
