The Reutlinger Community: Senior Living in Danville, CA

The Reutlinger Community Opens Doors to the Future of Senior Living. Form, function and design key to $10 million renovation

Danville, CA – On Sunday, September 18, at 2 PM, after five years of planning and construction, residents and officials at The Reutlinger Community will be celebrating the landmark completion of an extraordinary renovation project. The celebration will honor two families – one for the Schiff Center for Life and one for the Polse Family Pavilion – in recognition of the two benefactors whose generosity helped turn the vision of the renovation project into a reality.

Nearly every aspect of the community’s common physical space has been reconfigured, reconstructed or repurposed to meet the needs of the community’s senior residents today as well as into the future.

The elements of form, function and design were central to every decision made. Visitors and residents will see and feel the difference the moment they enter the lobby and reception area. Those areas are just a prelude to the overall welcoming environment and comfort that is immediately apparent as people move throughout the community. Guests will be able to tour the brand new art studio, fitness room, reception lobby, dining rooms, resident rooms, salon, nurses’ station, activity and sunroom, gallery and experience for themselves why The Reutlinger is considered the gold standard for senior living environments.

“Today’s living spaces must be multi-functional. It is so important for the environment to be hospitality-oriented while at the same time effectively accommodate our aging population’s needs. To achieve this goal, careful consideration was given to color choices, wall coverings, carpet patterns, and furnishings. Pairing inviting interior design elements with wide, easy to maneuver corridors and public spaces with special lighting and other features creates an environment of comfort and safety, in addition to promoting socialization for our residents,” stated Jay Zimmer, CEO. “Equal consideration of the multi-functional concept was given to private rooms and public spaces.”

All dining rooms, reading and activities areas, and relaxing spaces include inviting seating options, beautiful window treatments, and tasteful furnishings. A 24/7 café is a wonderful addition to the communal areas. Residents can now easily communicate on a number of devices with friends and loved ones who may be far away geographically but always close in their hearts.

“As the East Bay’s most respected residence for the elderly, this renovation firmly establishes The Reutlinger as the area’s premier senior living facility,” said Zimmer. “Our Board of Directors has backed this project 100% because they believe our residents deserve the best. This $10 million renovation project has delivered that and more.”
