The Grand Rehabilitation and Nursing at Guilderland Receives Prestigious Award!
On behalf of the entire Grand Healthcare System, I’d like to wish a hearty congratulations to the wonderful and dedicated staff at The Grand Rehabilitation and Nursing at Guilderland!
It wasn’t long ago that we would hear that eldercare is high touch, but not high tech. Clearly, times have changed. Increasingly, it has become both. As never before, operators are harnessing technology in new and innovative ways that improve care delivery to our nation’s oldest and frailest members. To celebrate the exceptional feats being accomplished, McKnight’s and CareRise partnered to present this year’s 2017 McKnight’s Excellence In Technology Awards program!
The Grand Rehabilitation and Nursing at Guilderland Enters The Contest and Wins!
Excerpt From McKnight’s coverage of our award
“The Grand Rehabilitation and Nursing at Guilderland in Altamont, NY, earned Bronze in the category through creating a mobile app that gives residents more support. Whether they want another pillow, a room change or a different menu, they can make requests through the app. The community is using high tech smart tablets retrofitted with its applications and technology, and placed in every room for subacute admissions.”

Deborah H. is a resident at one of the Grand Healthcare and Rehabilitation Centers in NY. Deborah was experiencing severe anxiety when she was admitted to The Grand. In fact. Her anxiety was so pronounced that she was on 2 different medications for it and it kept her up all night it a fit of restless pacing back and forth.
Then she received one of the pre-loaded smart tablets from The Grand and to quote Deborah, “I cannot put my finger on it but everything changed for me after that.”
