Home Health Conditions & Treatment
Rehabilitation plays a vital role in recovery from major orthopedic, neurological, cardio-pulmonary, and general surgeries along with major events such as a stroke.
Licensed physical therapists, speech pathologists, and occupational therapists treat patients in their homes.
After an evaluation, a therapist designs a unique treatment plan based on the patient's needs.
The patient and caregiver are closely involved in establishing the treatment goals. Most patients use these services after leaving the hospital, a rehabilitation hospital, or skilled nursing facility, but patients also come to us by referrals from a primary care physician.
