Providing safe therapy at home
One out of three people over the age of 65 fall in their homes each year. Falls are the leading cause of accidental death, non-fatal injuries and hospitalization.
A Physical Therapist and Occupational Therapist are uniquely educated and qualified to determine the safest environment in your home. Our dedicated team of PTs and OTs can assess your environment and determine simple yet effective changes to ensure your safety and the safety of your loved ones.
In addition, the therapist will assess you in your home and make recommendations to adapt and make sure that you can continue to live safely and comfortably in the environment that you have called home.
Low Vision? Occupational Therapists can assist those with low vision in maximizing their mobility and independence at home.
Trouble swallowing? Speech and Language Pathologists are the experts in assisting those who have trouble swallowing, whether due to recent illness, stroke, or other causes. Our Speech Therapists are certified in the use of VitalStim, which uses low current electricity to stimulate weak muscles and has been shown to improve swallowing ability in just a few treatments.
