Gurwin’s Assisted Living Community offers an independent lifestyle complete with private apartments and an added layer of support to ensure our residents maintain their independence as long as possible.

best of long island senior living logoOur team of caring professionals foster personalized relationships with each resident and create an environment where our community members can be social, engaged and supported, adding quality of life to their years. At Gurwin’s Assisted Living Community, residents are part of a social network, where they can make friends and enjoy fine dining, trips and other activities they’ve always loved.

While Assisted Living is designed to maximize each resident’s independence and wellness, being part of the Gurwin Healthcare System’s Life Plan Community provides an added layer of security for our residents; should they ever need it, additional levels of care are available, right here on our Gurwin campus. Our Assisted Living residents have priority admission to all Gurwin programs and services, including our skilled nursing and rehabilitation center, memory care, home care, day care and on-site dialysis. The System also includes Fountaingate Gardens, an Independent Living Life Plan Community and many other specialty services to serve the needs of older adults on Long Island.

Lindner Residences shines as the pinnacle of Long Island assisted living communities, with apartment options including brand new studios and one or two bedrooms, and plenty of communal space that may be used for entertaining, community activities or just spending time alone with a book. And while Jewish culture is important for many of our Assisted Living residents, we welcome residents of all faiths and cultures.
