What is Home Health Care?
Home health care provides the opportunity for you to have a skilled clinician come to your home and partner with you to manage your health care needs, help you understand what to expect after a surgery, and give you peace of mind knowing that you have an expert to turn to during your time of need.

Physical therapy has long been thought of as a bridge between illness/injury and wellness. In terms of home health, therapy provides that bridge, but more importantly, it provides an anchor to help you stay independent in your own home. As we get older, family concerns grow about our ability to safely live independently at home. To the majority of our clients, the goal to live in their own houses or in an assisted living facility, rather than a skilled nursing facility, is their number one focus. Home health physical therapy and occupational therapy can assist you in achieving the dream. One of the best aspects of home health is that the therapist come to you. You do not have to find transportation to a clinic, worry about the weather, or feel like you are inconveniencing a loved one by asking for help getting to therapy appointments. Our therapist set up an appointment time with you, and come to your house to provide therapy.
