Home Health and Hospice Care’s rehabilitation services are designed to help patients overcome their limitations in order to move, work, communicate and live more freely. Like our home health nurses, our team of home rehabilitation therapists works under the supervision of a patient’s physician to provide advanced therapy designed to serve the patient’s personal needs. The following therapies are available:
The concentration of physical therapy is on improving the lower body. With the help of our physical therapist, patients build strength, improve mobility and develop greater confidence through special exercises and physical training.
People with circulatory problems, arthritis or joint replacements often need this type of therapy. Those recovering from muscular injuries or a recent amputation can also benefit from the assistance of physical therapy.
Our physical therapists work on balance, fall prevention, and ways to make your home environment safer after an injury or hospitalization.
The focus of occupational therapy is on improving the upper body and addressing the patients ability to perform daily living activities like grooming, bathing, dressing, laundry, and meal prep. Our occupational therapists teach patients with limitations resulting from injuries, disabilities or disease, how to live and work as independently as possible. These therapists help patients make the most of their remaining abilities through the use of specialized exercises, equipment and teach strategies to improve activities & daily living.
Our occupational therapists work on balance, fall prevention, and ways to make your home environment safer after an injury or hospitalization.
Speech therapy focuses on injury or disease processes and can address the ability to speak and understand, swallowing and cognition. Through speech therapy, we can help patients develop skills that enable them to think and express themselves more clearly, as well as addressing memory skills.
Medical Social Work
Specially trained medical social workers help people learn to live with the emotional and social pressures of illnesses and injuries. They share with their patients techniques and information for finding new strength within themselves and advise them where to turn for the support and comfort of others in the community.
