SAVE RANCHO LOS AMIGOS NATIONAL REHABILITATION CENTER in Downey CA

We the undersigned believe that Rancho Los Amigos Center serves the Disability Community like no other facility in the County. Without the option of rehabilitation at Rancho Los Amigos, many people with newly acquired disabilities will be funneled into skilled nursing facilities where the financial and human costs will increase dramatically, with longer stays and profoundly diminished chances for rehabilitation and community living. Rancho Los Amigos National Rehabilitation Center is a nationally recognized rehabilitation center. They offer access to specialists, rehabilitation therapies, independent living skills training, assistive technology options, driver evaluations, to all people with disabilities. These services build and maintain the capacity of people with disabilities to live, work, and thrive in our communities. We urge the County of Los Angeles to find a solution that meets the needs of community. The only way this can happen is to: KEEP RANCHO LOS AMIGOS REHABILITATION CENTER OPEN!

    Comments: 103,000 saurqe miles is not tiny. California ia 163,000, Japan is 147,000, by way of comparison..That ain’t tiny..I was not aware of the stretch of its outlying dependencies. It is blessed to be so remote. Otherwise it would have a very serious defense burden, with all that dispersed territory to secure.
