Harmony Village at Paramus

CareOne Celebrates the Grand Opening of Harmony Village at Paramus

CareOne hosted a lavish grand opening celebration welcoming Harmony Village at Paramus to #HipNJ!

Hundreds of guests packed the pristine space, which is the first of its kind in Bergen County 100% dedicated to memory loss.

“I waited for this place to open,” said Arlene Madaio, who has a family member being treated at Harmony Village. “I looked at every other place in Bergen County, but this one was it. When you have a memory impaired parent, you need a dedicated space that provides compassionate, dedicated care.”

CareOne chairman and CEO Daniel E. Straus cut the red ribbon alongside CareOne executive vice president, Elizabeth Straus, New Jersey Senator Robert M. Gordon and members of the NFL Alumni, including NFLA president Bart Oates, New York Giants Super Bowl champions Ottis Anderson and Howard Cross, and former New York Jets star Tony Richardson.

Guests enjoyed a lavish cocktail hour party and open bar while touring the space, which boasts modern yet comfortable amenities. On location is also a spa and wellness center to pamper patients and promote positivity. During the warm weather months, guests can enjoy time out at the resort-like outdoor lounge.

“CareOne strives to always push the bar of healthcare in the state of New Jersey, and we take pride in the level of care we deliver to our patients and their families,” explained Daniel E. Straus.

The Connie Dwyer Breast Center

Meet the NEW Connie Dwyer Breast Center

November 1st not only marked the beginning of the Holiday season (too soon?), but for many families affected by breast cancer, the real gift is knowing that November 1st also marked the beginning of an important fundraising campaign that will bring the Connie Dwyer Breast Center, a state-of-the-art breast health facility sponsored by the Connie Dwyer Breast Cancer Foundation, to the Trinitas Regional Medical Center in Elizabeth, NJ.

During each Tuesday in November, there will be pop-up party locations staged at Bloomingdale’s Short Hills. Participants will have the opportunity to engage in different activities for varying amounts of donation. With a minimum donation of $1, visitors will be gifted with Smarties® candy. For a donation of $5, attendees will receive goodies and/or gift cards from partnering brands and businesses, while supplies last. For $10 or more, participants will be entered-to-win a gift from Bloomingdale’s Short Hills.  Anyone who visits the pop-up location will be encouraged to partake in an interactive photo booth that will tie directly to the Trinitas social media awareness campaign running online.  

The campaign will conclude on the national day #GivingTuesday, November 28. On that day, there will be a live Facebook event hosted by New York Giants legend Ottis Anderson and other guests that will encourage viewers to donate funds through the Trinitas Health Foundation website portal.

Donations to the campaign will be collected all month long, and every bit counts – Donate today! And for more information about the Connie Dwyer Breast Cancer Foundation, visit CDBF.org.
