Taj Barnett, marketing manager for The Allure Group’s Linden Center for Nursing and Rehabilitation, joined Chris Banks, founder and executive director of the East New York United Concerned Citizens, to hand out over 250 turkeys the Sunday before Thanksgiving. Linden Center was proud to co-sponsor this very worthwhile event.
The King David Center for Nursing and Rehabilitation hosted a Chanukah Drive-Thru Event on Sunday, Dec. 6. We distributed free activity boxes, which contained Circle Magazine, a coupon to the Ice Cream House, the means to create your own science experiment and several other goodies.

Linden Center and Vis a Vis Health — a Promising Partnership
With Vis A Vis Health, Allure’s care continues even after you leave Linden Center. Patients are given a hand-held device that enables them to keep in touch with healthcare professionals, and allows those same professionals to track the patient’s biometrics.
Veterans Day Fete
Linden Center celebrated Veterans Day with food, inspirational video chats and the presentation of gifts to our wonderful residents. We thank all the veterans for doing their part in history and for putting their lives on the line for our country!
Heartwarming Thank You Letter
This heartwarming thank you letter, from the family member of a resident to King David Center administrator David Schoenblum, made our day! It is moments like these that motivate us to do what we do. Special shoutout to our hardworking staff for their dedication.
Pondering Smart Healthcare Facilities
Joel Landau, founder and chairman of The Allure Group, wrote for McKnight’s Long-Term Care News about smart healthcare facilities, which have gained some traction during the coronavirus pandemic. Particularly notable was a temporary field hospital built in Wuhan, China — the very epicenter of the outbreak — that was manned by robots.
Artificial Intelligence: How its Potential Has Been Shown During the Pandemic
Joel Landau also wrote for Healthcare Business Today about the manner in which artificial intelligence’s potential has been revealed during the pandemic. He cites as one example the manner in which an AI platform detected an unusual flu outbreak in Wuhan, days before the World Health Organization issued an alert about the pandemic.
Talking Up Technology
Melissa Powell, The Allure Group’s president and COO, was featured in a recent McKnight’s Long-Term Care News article discussing PadInMotion, Inc., which allows our patients to engage with loved ones via one-touch connectivity.
“Having PadInMotion’s tablet technology at every single one of our beds was a lifeline during the pandemic,” Melissa told writer Kimberly Marselas, “and will be a staple of our resident-family communication moving forward.”
