Preventing Frostbite & Bringing Out The Best In The Newark Community

Every winter season there is an increased need for adequate clothing for the indigent population in the Newark area, and Sinai Post-Acute, Nursing & Rehab Center is intent on helping those at risk: First with a Coat & Show Drive through the month of November followed by a Health Fair on Saturday, December 16.

“We see an increase during the Holiday season in the number of people falling ill with pneumonia, experiencing frostbite, and forced to undergo amputations, says Dr. Nelson Aluya, a Medical Director at Sinai Center who spearheaded this campaign. “We are first-hand witnesses of the harm that inclement weather can cause – and have decided to be proactive about it by tapping in the resources and kind heart of our own community.

The call to action issued by Sinai Center to drop off new or gently used coasts & shoes at its front desk throughout the month of November was certainly effective.

“The response of the community was outstanding” says Golde Bondy, LNHA, Administrator at Sinai Center, “Only surpassed by the amazing participation in our Health Fair where people from all walks of the community took advantage of the opportunity to get their blood pressure taken, get screened for diabetes, and obtain valuable pharmaceutical information. Both events proved that Newark is a community with a big heart”.

Indeed, the success of Sinai’s twofold proactive effort is clear:

In conjunction with area hospitals, The City of Newark, Rutgers University, and Impact Life International, Sinai Center collected an impressive selection of shoes and coats in every size.

Honored with the presence of the H. Ugo Nwaokoro, Deputy Mayor of Newark, the Health Fair held in mid-December was a rewarding collaboration with Ghana Medical Association, the Jamaican Medical Association, Jah Jah Foundation, and Impact Life International. It brought to the fore the best in Newark – its communal organizations and the young and vibrant representatives behind them.

Providing premier subacute and skilled nursing care in Essex County, and proactively looking out for the most vulnerable, Sinai Center is certainly creating a positive impact in the community at large.

SINAI CENTER’S EMERGENCY PERSONNEL APPRECIATION DAY:

Our very heartfelt way to say THANK YOU to Police Officers, Firefighters, Emergency Medical Staff, Military Personnel + their family members & friends!

In an afternoon filled with smiles, great food, raffle prizes, and bouncy music, and even a hula hoop contest, our certified massage therapists were busy working their magic on fire fighters, police officers, and EMT's (who looked relaxed and happy after their massage), while the talented & charismatic Venita Perkins lead a group in a Zumba workout (everyone agreed it was serious work – but a lot of fun!).
