Our physical therapists find it very rewarding as they assist people to reclaim their mobility, independence and daily routines in their own home. The advantages of receiving physical therapy at home are mastering the daily tasks which take place in the home, and to increase safety. It’s in the home setting where most accidents occur and having the PT there allows them to assess home safety, set functional goals, and work with the patient to maximize their ability, improve strength, balance, coordination, and make strides by enhancing their quality of life as their physical impairment declines and mobility increases. For improved ADL (Activities of Daily Living) function, they will demonstrate and teach safe ambulation and transfer techniques with or without assistive devices (e.g., walker, getting out of bed, up from sitting, maneuvering safely with a walker or wheelchair) and develop a home exercise program with you to maintain muscle tone and mobility.
