Heroes Welcome Program for First Responders

January 31, 2012 – Islandia, NY, U.S.A. – After receiving an overwhelming response to last year’s piloted Heroes Welcome Program for First Responders, The Arbors Assisted Living Communities, which has locations in Bohemia, Hauppauge, Islandia and Westbury, is ringing in the New Year by rolling out its signature program beyond its Islandia location to make it available at all five of its communities.


Developed to show appreciation for Long Island’s large first responder population and their families, Heroes Welcome Program for First Responders offers current or former police, firefighters and EMS/EMT workers and their immediate families a discount of up to 10 percent off The Arbors’ monthly rental rate for assisted living at any of the Arbors’ Long Island communities, located in Bohemia, Hauppauge, Islandia and Westbury.


“The Arbors Assisted Living Communities’ Heroes Welcome Program for First Responders was originated to help offset the rising healthcare costs for the many brave men and women who dedicate their lives to serve and protect,” said Christine Herting, Regional Director of The Arbors. “Since having launched this program one year ago, we have seen a tremendous response and demand, which is why we decided to make this program even more convenient and accessible. In this tough economic climate, many first responders and their families go without the option of assisted living due to the common misconception that they can’t afford it. Since these first responders are out there caring for us, we wanted to show our appreciation for them by making our high quality senior care and assisted living a more obtainable and affordable option for them and their loved ones.”


The Arbors Assisted Living Communities’ Heroes Welcome Program for First Responders is inspired by the success of its Heroes Welcome Program for Veterans that debuted in 2008. To learn if you or a loved one qualifies for this special program, please contact The Arbors’ health care professionals at 1-800-249-4959, or visit www.thearborsassistedliving.com
