Restoring and Maintaining Independence

We believe the key to success is not just the amount of rehabilitation, but the focus of rehabilitation that makes all the difference. To us, it is all about getting our clients better– faster. We focus on helping clients return to an independent lifestyle by assisting with mobility, strength and improvement of a client’s ability to navigate daily life.

When you need short-term rehabilitation you have a Team of Rehabilitation Specialists who are unified in their dedication to providing daily wellness activities and concentrated therapies to promote optimum health and renewal.


Programs Include:

  • Fall prevention therapy
  • Mobility equipment training
  • Gait and ambulation improvement
  • Individualized care plans
  • Strengthening activities for daily living
  • Speech & language improvement

  • Endurance
  • Strength
  • Restoration of function
  • Stress reduction
  • Patient education

Family involvement is encouraged. Close communication is maintained with the referring physician and other members of the healthcare team throughout the rehabilitation program.

Under the directions of your referring physician and the rehabilitation therapy team your journey to wellness begins the moment you arrive. You will meet your therapists and establish tour goals and a plan for restoration.

The Reutlinger Community is in partnership with Live Well at Home, offering non-medical home care services to older adults living at our community or to persons living in Contra Costa County. If you need home care support, please contact Live Well at Home or call 925-626-4340.
