New Program At Nursing Home To Specialize In Alzheimer's Care

In an exciting development in 2015, New Community Corporation is announcing that the Extended Care Facility in Newark will soon offer a new program wholly specialized in the care of individuals with Alzheimer's disease and dementia.

The full-time program, which is expected to start in the coming weeks, will be staffed by a registered nurse, certified nursing assistants and activities staff from the nursing home—all who have undergone extensive training to prepare for the specific challenges and needs of residents facing Alzheimer's or dementia.

NCC Dons Red To Promote Heart Health

Modesta Colon vividly recalls the symptoms of a mild heart attack that she experienced three years ago. She felt nausea, dizziness and some discomfort in her chest—but she didn't know at the time that she was actually suffering a heart attack.

When doctors informed her of what happened, Colon was stunned. She also discovered that she had high blood pressure, which she now manages with medication. Her heart attack was a major learning experience.


NCC Helps The Uninsured Get Covered Under Affordable Care Act

New Community recently partnered with New Jersey Citizen Action and WNYC radio station to help uninsured residents sign up for health coverage before the open enrollment deadline of February 15.

"There are still quite a few people who need coverage," said India Hayes Larrier, Health Care Organizer at New Jersey Citizen Action, the agency that spearheaded the planning of the event.

Hosted at the headquarters of New Community at 233 West Market St. in Newark, the Open Enrollment event allowed residents to walk in and immediately receive free, in-person enrollment assistance in accessing quality health coverage that's more affordable, thanks to the Affordable Care Act and Health Insurance Marketplace.
