Allaire Rehab & Nursing, a top-rated, luxurious healthcare facility in Central Jersey, is pleased to announce its new alliance with TeleHealth Solution – bringing the benefits of cutting-edge telemedicine to its patients and residents.
Renowned for its outstanding subacute care and unique Horizons Neuro Rehab Program catering to young adults with neurological impairment, Allaire takes pride on being at the cusp of all that’s new in healthcare: “Revolutionizing Care Delivery™”. By partnering with TeleHealth, Allaire residents are assured round-the-clock physician coverage especially during the critical evening and weekend hours.
In a typical skilled nursing or assisted living community, when a patient experiences respiratory distress, chest pain, a fever, or any other change in medical condition, the patient is sent to the emergency room and potentially admitted to the hospital. With telemedicine technology enabling virtual physician access, a facility can avoid unnecessary hospital transfers and “treat in place” in most scenarios – thus reducing medical costs, stress, hospital-associated delirium, and other potential complications.
Dr. Waseem Ghannam, CEO and Co-Founder of TeleHealth Solution started the company to help elderly patients avoid unnecessary stressors related to acute medical changes. “With this technology coupled with expert hospitalist physicians, we are able to examine patients in their nursing home setting, order additional labs and tests, and prescribe medications that can keep them out of the hospital. Patients can be treated in-house approximately 90% of the time,” states Dr. Ghannam.
TeleHealth Solution employs telemedicine technology that is equipped with a digital stethoscope, a high definition camera, a pulse oximeter, and the Hand Over Heart ECG Glove. “The ECG Glove is a very special tool in our arsenal which would amount to a trip to the hospital to perform but now can be deployed by a nurse instantly,” notes Dr. Ghannam.
“Always looking to upgrade our standard of care as medicine evolves, we are excited to work with TeleHealth. With 24/7 doctor access, Allaire patients and staff no longer have to worry about medical care when our in-house providers are not there. TeleHealth’s board-certified doctors are available on demand to answer questions, evaluate patients, and have family meetings if needed,” says Brie Gallo, Vice President of Operations at Allaire Health Services.
The implementation of telemedicine adds an additional level of physician oversight reassuring families that their loved one will be well-taken care of when an emergency arises in the middle of the night, minimizing the need for hospitalization and bolstering the center’s positive outcomes.
Allaire Rehab & Nursing is the only Special Care Nursing Facility (SCNF) in the state of New Jersey to offer long term care with therapy for individuals who suffer from neurological impairment, and has established itself among the “Best Nursing Homes In The Nation” as ranked by US News & World Report.

In the United States today, life expectancy is at an all-time high. The average American can expect to live to 78 years old, and many are living longer.
While many older adults choose to age in place in their homes, more and more are realizing the benefits that senior living communities can provide to the healthy aging process.
“We embrace the concept of successful aging,” says Allison Nidetz, General Manager of The Brielle at Seaview, “and surround each individual with a personalized balance of independence and caring support. Residents can continue to pursue their interests and hobbies, or learn new ones, in a flexible, resident-centric environment.”
By creating a community structured around key pillars of wellness – social, intellectual, vocational, spiritual, physical and emotional – residents keep moving, keep learning, stay connected and have fun.
“As we enter our 60’s, 70’s and 80’s, this type of engaged living becomes an important tool for maintaining mental, physical and emotional health,” says Allison. “It’s never too late to live the best life possible.”
Memory Care Solutions
Alzheimer’s disease and dementia disorders present unique care challenges.
“Family caregivers of cognitively impaired seniors find that when the stress of daily care is removed, so is the tension and worry,” says Galina Markovich, ANP, RN, Director of Millennium Memory Care. “Loving relationships can flourish knowing mom or dad is safe, healthy and comfortable.”
Unlike dementia residents housed in a locked wing, communities like Millennium Memory Care are completely dedicated to providing informed and effective care, even for those residents with behavioral issues that might exclude them from admission to other assisted living settings.
The entire environment at Millennium Memory Care is specifically designed to care for individuals with memory impairment. Staff members are trained in memory care and other aspects of aging, including helping family members understand and deal with a
loved one’s condition as it progresses. “We provide constant companionship and a social environment that reduces isolation while increasing awareness, cognition and engagement,” says Galina.
Innovative sensory stimulation enables pleasant, long-term memories, provides joy, and decreases anxiety and agitation. Physician supervision and a full-time nursing staff manage diabetes, wound care and other medical conditions.
Respite care can be a great way for a senior to try out assisted living and can provide a much-needed break for a caregiver to handle a medical issue or simply take some time for themselves.
During a respite stay, settings like The Brielle at Seaview and Millennium Memory Care provide access to all the amenities and care provided to full-time residents.
A Commitment to Education on Aging
At The Brielle at Seaview, new topics are presented each month, helping families learn, share and connect over important issues around aging. “Ongoing educational opportunities such as our Second Tuesdays lecture series are designed to help caregivers understand and become prepared for the changes they or their family members may face,” says Allison.
Millennium Memory Care presents free monthly support groups in conjunction with the Alzheimer’s Association of Greater New Jersey, to help community members understand the basics, early warning signs and disease progression of dementia, and to learn practical solutions.
Meaning and purpose are brought to the lives of residents at The Brielle.
“I love that the focus is on the individual but focused on creating moments of joy for those living with Alzheimer’s or other forms of dementia,” says Diana Thompson, the Lifestyle Director at The Brielle. People living with dementia typically struggle with stringing moments together and remembering details, so it is important to create those individual moments of joy for them.
Since the implementation of the Valeo™ Signature Programs, in September of 2016, the staff has noticed more engaged residents and they are excited about the activities and interest profiles that were created to match the strengths or interests between residents and staff. It does not matter if you are a program director, the chef, or a member of the housekeeping team, Valeo creates opportunities for staff and residents to learn and grow together. “This is not just another program, it is the culture,” says Diana.
Create & Compose is Diana’s favorite signature program because music is the universal language. She has seen people unable to speak suddenly sing along with a song. She loves seeing them show a different side that they have struggled with expressing in the past.
A proud moment happened this April for residents, their families and staff at The Brielle as they put the Valeo program into action by painting a mural of Snug Harbor Botanical Garden. Elizabeth, the Recreation Aid and Valeo Coordinator, recalled a resident that had difficulty engaging and was passive when it came to activities. She struggled to hold the paint brush during the mural program, but with the help of staff guiding her hand, she soon started painting flowers on her own. Now she walks past the mural and tells everyone “That’s my flower.” That’s what you call creating “a moment of joy.” Click here to see photos of this beautiful mural and read more about this event.
