very goodreviewed on: 11/18/2014 by Anonymous
I do think they could have done a little more in terms of the activities. The major problem was that my mom felt it was too Jewish, but we can't really fault them for that. She could not get used to being in a more regimented area like that. Now we have her living at home with an aid, but the decision to leave Gurwin had everything to do with my mom and nothing to do with Gurwin. They were very good.
My first hand impression of Gerwin assisted livingreviewed on: 09/11/2016 by Leslie Schertzman
The place is very carefully and successfully run with an attentive and caring staff who makes an effort to remember everyone's name! It is a most compassionate environment. In general, it seems to have residents in the age group of 80-100's. At lot of residents are somewhat physically disabled but extra effective services are available for this. Guests can sleep over if necessary and get meals as well. Overall, I think it's a great place.
They were good.reviewed on: 12/06/2013 by Wife
They have long term nursing here but we used the rehab services. They provided good care and were clean. They were not primarily for patients with dementia. In terms of the physical care and the staffing everyone was good. The place was good. They were maybe a little too big to give a patient who needed extra care the attention that would take and when my husband was there I would be there six or eight hours a day. He was just beside himself when I would leave.
Great Meals!!reviewed on: 08/02/2017 by Anonymous
I have no complaints about how things are going for my mother since she has made the move into this community . The staff are always polite and I am comfortable with the care they have provided her. She has been enjoying the meals and I am hoping that she gets more involved in some of the activities in the future . Overall she is happy and I would recommend it to anyone.

Gurwin is a nice facility, especially if you are Jewish. Plenty of activities and I saw that the residents were generally happy. The price is the going rate in my area. Nursing home is next door if and when needed.
