I have had the opportunity to see a number of other Skilled Nursing Facilities when my grandmother was still alive and some on the surface looked like great facilities, but I have to tell you that it really is about the staff that makes a facility great. It’s true the place is small and been around a long time. They are in the process of doing renovations. Overall, they are doing great with what they have to work with. I think it also makes a huge difference when families are involved and take an active role with their loved one. We have never been discouraged from being involved and has welcomed our feedback. My grandfather is quite happy and contented there.
I had excellent care by every area in the center. I want people to know of my positive experience there after a total knee replacement. When I left there my knee was in great working order and my care couldn’t have been better. The food, snacks, and friendliness were also very good and uplifting to me. Thank you, I couldn’t have been happier with this facility. It was clean, smells pleasant, very friendly and good food. The PT and OT were excellent. I had a complete knee replacement at John Muir and your facility was recommended to me by my Dr. and his assistant. I also have several other doctors and friends who used this facility and was more than pleased as I was. I spent almost three weeks there and could see how well it was run.
Unfortunately, she had another stroke and was admitted to the hospital again in late August, 2012 This time we were instructed by the physicians that she was so weak and frail that she probably would not make it. They recommended Hospice care. I immediately thought of Danville Post-Acute and called them to see if they would take a hospice patient. They would and for the end of her life, the care could not have been any better. I was there around the clock. Never did I see any of the other reviews concerns. She and her roommate were well cared for, there was no filth or smell ever. The staff was so kind, gentle and understanding of my families stress and trauma. Our Mom did pass away there, and with all of the dignity, grace and comfort we, and she could have asked for.
My Father was in a chain run skilled nursing facility in Walnut Creek, and their level of care didn’t compare at all with what Danville did for myself and my family.Thank you to the administrator, who checked in on us daily, the director of nursing, who would make sure all of my Moms meds were given timely and she was always comfortable and to the entire nursing staff and rehab team thank you so much for all that you did and that you do.
Overall, my impression of the facility is that it looks a little older but it was nice and quaint, but come on it was obviously built more than 2 decades ago. So if you are going to complain about the overall structure/set-up/bathroom layout go somewhere else. Pretty irritating to read some of the reviews on here. The room and bathroom all were a good size. My grandpa was able to comfortably use his walker/wheelchair through the whole facility. It may not be the Hilton but the staff overall was awesome. They really helped my grandpa regain strength to walk better, eat better, and lifted his spirits. Thanks Danville Post-Acute Rehab for helping Tatay aka Al J.

We actually had her at Stonebrooke in Concord and that facility didn’t work out and we had my grandma transferred to Danville Post-Acute Rehab center and it was a blessing in disguise. Putting a loved one in a home is a very difficult process. Danville Post-Acute Rehab made me very comfortable and confident that we had my grandma at the best facility in the Bay Area. I would recommend this facility to anyone! Thanks the staff for everything that you have done for my grandmas recovery. You truly are amazing!!

The various workers had slightly different positive views about why the place is good. One said, the therapy is the best, another, always the people to be treated as I would want my parents to be treated. Basically the “Golden Role”.
The people I work with are great. And the last one I talked to said, “Good rehab very positive and caring people.” One patient who happened to be my wife said, Everyone who helped or treated me was very attentive”.

Other positive qualities we observed in your staff include timely information provided to us by your administrative staff, excellent care provided by the nurses, therapists and all of the support folks, and the level of cleanliness of the facility.
