Home rehab also allows patients to involve the family members along with doctors, nurses, and therapists. The input and support of family and friends during time spent in rehab can make a huge difference and is essential for having a positive outcome.
All NVNA and Hospice’s home health rehab employees are fully-licensed professionals who are certified in their respective areas of expertise. The therapists may work individually or as a team depending on the patient’s individual needs. Home assessments are often offered by the physical therapist and/or occupational therapist with recommendations and suggestions for providing a safe and risk-free environment as well as enhancing the patient’s functioning level.
Patients can take advantage of several different types of treatment, depending on their functional needs.
Physical Therapy (PT)
Our physical therapists focus on the patient’s mobility and ambulation and help patients regain strength and mobility after an accident, fall, surgery or illness. Therapeutic exercises focus on balance and gait as well as safe transfers from bed to chair, chair to bed, etc. These are just some of the areas that physical therapy explores and, through a customized care plan, aims to improve.
Occupational Therapy (OT)
Our occupational therapists focus on improving motor skills needed for functioning in living and work environments. These include activities such as showering, dressing, eating, cooking and work-related functions. Therapeutic exercises and appropriate training are provided to strengthen and improve ability and dexterity as well as visual acuity if necessary. Adaptive equipment such as special shower heads, bath seats, and eating utensils may be recommended to improve the patient’s functional abilities.
Speech Therapy (ST)
Our speech therapists concentrate on swallowing and speech issues resulting from an illness or injury. Their expertise and guidance assist the patient in restoring and developing skills that have been weakened or compromised. They may use cognitive exercises to help the patient and offer the patient support and education.
