Over the past couple of years, we have established a culture that is built on compassion, making GICNR one of the top Nursing Homes in New Rochelle, NY and the Westchester area itself. And, in a word, compassion is the primary reason why families select Glen Island Center and are delighted with their decision.

Within our nursing home we promise you that no matter what time of the day, there is always a member of staff on hand to help with any tasks that your loved one is having difficulty with, including dressing, bathing, drinking, and eating so that they can help them make sure they are still maintaining that everyday norm with ease!
Some older people have complex medical conditions, such as Alzheimer’s or dementia, which family members may struggle to cope with. Our nursing home staff are trained and experienced in all manner of health conditions and can provide the help and assistance that is required. A team based healthcare approach is also utilized so that different medical workers on site including registered nurses and nursing aides can work closely together in order to determine the best clinical care solution for the individual as well as different formal activity programs for the individual throughout their time with us.
Within Glen Isle Center’s nursing homes, we provide activities that look to further promote socialization among all our residents as we believe it can help individuals de-stress and hasten any disparities they may be struggling with. Many of our senior citizens are continuously encouraged to mingle with their peers as we offer a variety of different social activities as well as outings to keep our seniors active, mentally stimulated, and to serve as a distraction for any burdens they may be potentially facing. The activities that are provided within our nursing homes range from outdoor dining, exercise, therapy, exercise classes to games to play with and simply just regular social gatherings as well.
It is important for seniors and also seniors with complex medical conditions to be in a sanitary, healthy long-term facility environment as there is always the possibility for our living facility to undergo a minor bug or spread of a virus which is why housekeeping is necessary is key in preventing disease prevention as well. Our professional housekeeping staff ensures that bedding is changed regularly and clothes are always cleaned and pressed as sometimes these tasks may become increasingly harder with older age. Not to mention, a clean nursing home will also help prevent any potential injuries from occurring whether its slipping or even tripping on objects which might be hazardous.
Relieving the Strain on Family Members
The modern family structure usually requires all adults to work, leaving insufficient time to ensure that elderly family members are looked after throughout the day. Knowing that your loved one is safe and well looked after in our nursing homes enables the rest of the family to take a step back and relax. We know that you may worry that there may be the potential for them to undergo a medical issue or emergency which is why if your loved one does in fact need to receive medical treatment, they will immediately be safely transported to their doctor’s office or hospital or the doctor will come to the facility itself.
