Physical Therapy: Our Physical Therapists play a critical role in helping people stay safe in their homes and out of the hospital. They do this by coming to your home and thoroughly evaluating you and your home, then making recommendations to reduce your risk of falling, and increase your independence. This may involve working with you to improve your balance, giving you a home exercise program and giving you suggestions for improving your safety in the home. Our Physical Therapists utilize a “hands-on” approach and often incorporate manual therapy into your treatment, if appropriate. They have specialized experience working with the aging population and the common health issues they experience.
Occupational Therapy: Our Occupational Therapists help our clients do their daily activities in a safe and easy manner. They give our clients helpful tips on easier ways to do things, which is very important when you have a health issue. This may include educating you on the safest way to bathe, get dressed and make meals. Occupational Therapists also have a lot of knowledge about equipment that can make like easier, such as shower chairs, long handled sponges and other adaptive equipment.
Speech Therapy: Our Speech Therapists go to our client’s homes and identify ways to improve their ability to communicate and/or their ability to eat and swallow. Our Speech Therapists will evaluate how a person communicates and also how he/she is able to swallow. Then the Therapist will make recommendations related to diet and adaptive equipment and may also give you a home exercise program.
Medical Social Work services: Our Medical Social Workers go to our client’s home and give the clients and their family/caregivers information about community resources and services that can help keep seniors safe and more independent in their home. They also have information about income requirements to qualify for local services. Our social workers can also help you cope with life changes that come with the aging process.
Home Health Aide services: Our Home Health Aides go to our client’s home and assist with personal care, including bathing and dressing. They provide assistance as needed and help our clients do these important activities safely, while respecting our clients’ privacy.
