New Season of Community Connections Launches 10/16!
Community Connections: Using the Power of Film to Lead Intentional Lives is a sub-series of our ongoing documentary presentations Real-to-Reel .

In this series, documentaries are selected that highlight social issues that are important to Long Islanders, and through facilitated discussion, help our audiences discover what they can do in their daily lives to increase their own sense of power in grappling with issues of the day that can seem so overwhelming.

This series is made possible through funding from the Long Island Community Foundation and Humanities New York . The first event of our new season of Community Connections is a FREE presentation of Marcela Gaviria's THE GANG CRACKDOWN at 7:30 on Tuesday, October 16th.

THE GANG CRACKDOWN investigates how a series of killings on Long Island, allegedly by the MS-13 gang, led to a sweeping dragnet of immigrant kids- many of whom have been accused of having gang affiliation with little evidence and held in detention without charge for months. Long Island is home to one of the U.S.'s largest communities of unaccompanied migrant children fleeing violence from Central America. As President Trump declares war on MS-13 and points to the killings on Long Island to justify efforts to ramp up deportations, this film investigates the fraught relationship between immigrant communities and law enforcement, and whether or not the crackdown is actually making Long Island safer.

This special screening will include a discussion and reception (sponsored by New York Panini ) with film interviewees, Irma Solis, JD, Chapter Director of the Suffolk County Chapter of the NYCLU, Sergio Argueta of STRONG Youth, and STRONG Youth members committed to ending youth and gang violence.

Each of the films presented in the Community Connections series will include a community discussion and reception sponsored by an area restaurant. Because strong communities include strong downtowns with thriving businesses, we are honored to include reception sponsors from our vibrant selection of local restaurants. We encourage all our members and patrons to visit our reception sponsors and thank them for helping to support our series, and helping to build Community Connections.

Watch our calendar of events for more Community Connections programs throughout the year.

Sponsor Spotlight: Gurwin Jewish Family of Services
Choosing Care for an Aging Loved One: Why the Full Continuum of Healthcare Matters

Choosing a rehabilitation facility or an assisted living community for a loved one can be daunting. Many of the options seem similar, and it’s difficult to know which one would be right for you. One thing you might want to consider, especially when choosing services for an older person, is, “What else?”

What else will your loved one need, as they continue to age, either at home or in a facility? What other services might they require if their health becomes more fragile? What else will you need, as a caregiver and involved family member? When considering “What else?” you should find out: Does the provider you’re considering have any other healthcare services in place to help, either now or in the future?

At Gurwin, we help you handle the “What else?” with ease. Whether you’re going home from short-term rehabilitation and need a little more help, or are in our assisted living community and need services such as dialysis or home care, you can be sure we’ll be able to meet your needs within the Gurwin Family of Healthcare Services. Some of the options available in the Gurwin continuum include:

  • A nursing and rehabilitation center, which offers long-term care and short-term rehabilitation, as well as a host of specialty care options, including ventilator and respiratory care, on-site dialysis (available to the local community, as well), memory and advanced care (coming soon). 
  • An assisted living community, which includes full apartments, engaging activities and delicious meals, as well as access to any other Gurwin service a resident might need, including home care, dialysis, day care or priority admission to the nursing and rehabilitation center for short-term rehabilitation or a transition to long-term care.
  • Adult Day Programs, including a medical model providing nursing and rehabilitation services along with meals and social stimulation to members of the community on a daily outpatient basis; and a social model, for those with mild to moderate dementia.
  • Home Care Programs, which provide Gurwin-quality care right in your own home, whether that’s in the family home or in an assisted living setting.

The final piece in the Gurwin continuum is soon-to-be-built Fountaingate Gardens, a Life Plan Community scheduled to break ground in early 2019 on the Gurwin campus. Currently taking deposits, the community promises to offer an active, vibrant lifestyle, with the added comfort of knowing that the Gurwin Family of Healthcare Services is available should it be needed.

Opting for the Gurwin continuum helps relieve the stress that “What else?” can bring, giving you peace of mind knowing your loved one’s changing needs will be met. Because once you’re part of the family, we treat you like family.
 The Cinema Arts Centre is a 501(c)3 not-for-profit organization. The mission of the Cinema Arts Centre is to bring the best in cinematic artistry to Long Island, and use the power of film to expand the awareness and consciousness of our community.
