The “As Desired” program is free for individuals who are no longer appropriate for traditional rehabilitation therapies in the Hebrew Health Care gym. Hebrew Health Care is a nonprofit, non-sectarian healthcare provider of inpatient, outpatient and community based geriatric services to older adults in the Greater Hartford community.
