Reutlinger expands rehabilitation therapy

In a move to provide integrated health care, the Reutlinger Community for Jewish Living in Danville has formed a strategic partnership with Affirma Rehabilitation. “This alliance benefits our residents by allowing them to get needed care in place — immediately and at regular intervals — alleviating the stress and wait for off-site doctor visits,” said Reutlinger CEO Jay Zimmer.

The therapeutic services also will be available for those in Reutlinger’s short-term rehabilitation unit needing post-hospital discharge care, Zimmer said,  “and plans are already underway to offer services to the community at large as well.”

The comprehensive services — including orthopedic and stroke rehabilitation, cardio-pulmonary care and dementia therapy — will be part of a broader outpatient program with an increased focus on wellness for Reutlinger’s assisted-living community, Zimmer added.
