THE REA FOUNDATION
REA. Doesn’t ring a bell? We a are a dedicated specialized hospital foundation for the Institut universitaire sur la réadaptation en déficience physique de Montréal (which could be translated as Physical Rehabilitation University Institute of Montreal). This University Institute groups the Institut de réadaptation Gingras-Lindsay-de-Montréal, the Centre de réadaptation Lucie-Bruneau et The Institut Raymond-Dewar, both (ultra)specialized in physical rehabilitation. Together, they provide care for people living with a physical disability (sensory, language, hearing or motor).
What role does REA play in all of this? Our daily motivation is to raise awareness and collect donations for the cause and the Institute.
And because you are definitely asking the question. REA is equivalent to the first three letters of the word RÉAdaptation (rehabilitation in French), because we are there from the first moment. Quite simply.
