Our therapy team is passionate about bringing the latest techniques and programs to our patients.
Through continuing education, our speech language pathologists, physical and occupational therapists apply the latest research to improve cognition, balance, promote independence and reduce fall-risk. They have the skills and expertise to design comprehensive therapy and rehab programs for strengthening, balance training, pain reduction, wound-healing, urinary incontinence, increasing range of motion, activities of daily living, swallowing and speech disorders, and cognitive deficits.
The physical therapist’s role in home care is to evaluate, treat, estimate prognosis, assist in diagnosis, encourage and teach patients. The PT will assess, establish and assist in progress to reach goals and become independent. If independence is not the goal, they will train caregivers to safely care for the pt and meet their daily needs. The PT is also a Case Manager which includes responsibility of communication between the MD, pharmacy, family and other team members to ensure safety and implement the skilled services needed for maximum medical and functional improvement.
