Therapy Services


Physical Therapy

Physical Therapy an essential part of an interdisciplinary home healthcare team that helps patients resume their daily activities and improve their overall health and well-being.If you suffer an injury or illness that limits your ability to move around normally, you may benefit from PT. And if you cannot leave the house, home-care physical therapy may be the best option.

Therapists work with patients on mobility and lifestyle changes, monitor symptoms and request interventions to help avoid unnecessary trips to the emergency room. As an example, studies show that if a COPD patient cannot walk at least 200 feet during a six-minute walking test, they have a higher chance of returning to the hospital.

Our Therapists deliver care at home focusing on teaching patients and their caregivers self-management strategies designed to help patients achieve their goals. This approach builds up patient and caregiver confidence and empowers them to manage safety and productivity at home. Physical therapy helps decrease the duration and severity of the disabilities that arise from chronic disease and helps patients return to their desired activities, such as going to church or working in the garden.

For those suffering from chronic conditions physical therapy sessions at home also help patients understand how increased physical activity and better lifestyle choices lead to improvement in their quality of life. Physical activity enhances weight loss, lowers blood pressure and improves mental health. An exercise program may also decrease future cardiac events and mortality.  

Most patients who receive home-care physical therapy are referred to the service by their physician. Your doctor can make the referral to Home Care For U, Inc., and he or she can attest that home services are medically necessary. This medical necessity report will likely also state that home-care physical therapy is needed because you are unable to leave the house due to your condition or circumstances.
 


Occupational Therapy

Occupational therapy practitioners enable people of all ages to live life to its fullest by helping them promote health, and prevent—or live better with—injury, illness, or disability. Imagine that you are looking forward to a relaxing day. You take a long shower, put on your favorite button down shirt and pair of jeans, and make yourself a cup of coffee. You are ready for your day.

Now picture you have experienced an injury, illness or have a chronic condition and how that would change your experience. You really want to get in the shower but you are too afraid of falling so you wash off at the sink instead. Your favorite pair of jeans are so comfortable but too hard to zip and button that you give up and pull on a pair of sweatpants. You have trouble reaching around to place your arm in your shirt sleeve, you are having shoulder pain and those buttons seem so small. You realize it is just too hard, you really don’t like that sweatshirt but it is easier. While making coffee, you confuse the sugar with the salt and have to throw it away. You are no longer looking forward to your day, you are stressed out, and the most basic activities are overwhelming.

This daily struggle is often the case for our patients. Fortunately here at Home Care For U, Inc., we have Therapists who work each and every day to empower patients to improve their ability to complete Activities of Daily Living (ADLs) and accomplish meaningful activities. Our Therapists have expertise in addressing the patients' ADL needs including home safety recommendations, providing adaptive equipment training, low-vision strategies, utilizing functional cognition strategies, decreasing anxiety and improving independence in the home. Occupational therapy helps people do the things they want and need to do through the therapeutic use of daily activities.
