On Tuesday, June 18, 2019 from 4:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. the public is invited to attend a celebration to mark the grand opening of the 1,800 sq. ft. rehabilitation gym inside Linn Health & Rehabilitation located at 30 Alexander Avenue in East Providence. At 4:30 p.m., East Providence Mayor Roberto DaSilva and other VIPs participate in a ribbon cutting ceremony. Staff will be on hand to provide tours of the Center and light refreshments.

The Rehabilitation and Wellness Center is the largest in-house rehabilitation unit within a nonprofit skilled nursing facility in the East Bay. The suite features state-of-the-art rehabilitation and therapy equipment and private therapy rooms for providing personalized physical and occupational therapy to Aldersbridge residents. The Center also sports a special walkway lane for working with residents on ambulatory motion, steps, and replica kitchen/laundry/bathroom areas for practicing skills of independent living.

“Our goal is helping our residents with improving their activities of daily living,” comments Cathy Donnelly, administrator of Linn Health & Rehabilitation. “Our therapists have created unique programs and adopted proven rehabilitation techniques that treat chronic or temporary health conditions that may prevent them from doing daily tasks. This dedicated space allows for the utmost quality in rehabilitation care so residents can get back on their feet as quickly as possible. We are really proud of that, and can’t wait to show off our new Center to the community.”
