Aldersbridge Communities, a nonprofit provider of long-term care, skilled nursing, rehabilitation therapy, assisted living services, and independent services for older adults, announces the opening of its Aldersbridge Physical Therapy and Wellness Center to the general public.
An Open House for the 1,800 sq. ft. rehabilitation suite, located inside Linn Health & Rehabilitation at 30 Alexander Avenue in East Providence, will be held on Saturday, October 22, 2022 from 10:00 a.m. to noon. At 11:00 a.m., U.S. Senator Jack Reed, East Providence Mayor Roberto DaSilva and other VIPs will participate in a ribbon cutting ceremony. Staff will be on hand to provide tours of the Center and light refreshments will be served.
The Aldersbridge Physical Therapy 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. Trained and certified staff provides high-quality care for adults in need of physical therapy, occupational therapy, speech therapy, specialized Parkinson’s disease movement and rehabilitation programs, and personalized wellness and recovery services for injury, medical disorders, and post-operative needs. The Center also sports a special walkway lane for working with patients on ambulatory motion and steps, and replica kitchen/laundry/bathroom areas for practicing skills of independent living.
“We look forward to helping residents of our Aldersbridge communities and adults in Rhode Island to improve their activities of daily living, medical recovery and independent mobility,” says Richard Gamache, MS, FACHCA, chief executive officer of Aldersbridge Communities. “Our therapists have created unique programs and adopted proven rehabilitation techniques to treat chronic or temporary health conditions such as Parkinson’s, heart disease, COPD, stroke, arthritis, and more. We are excited to showcase our Center and staff to the community and welcome all to attend our Open House.”
Outpatient appointments are available Monday-Friday from 9:00 am to 5:00 pm with other times and Saturdays by request. Most insurances are accepted and physician referrals are required.
