Physical Therapists (PT)
PTs address home safety, access mobility, and recommend the appropriate devices. Our physical therapists evaluate patients using diagnostic muscle, nerve, joint, and functional ability tests. PTs establish home health care treatment plans to relieve pain and to develop or restore function in order to reach maximum independence. Our Physical Therapist instruct patients and their families on the use of prosthetic, orthotic, and assistive devices (canes, walkers, wheelchairs, and more) and educate regarding treatment plans and goals.
Occupational Therapists (OT)
OTs instruct patients and families on different ways (compensatory strategies) to do activities of daily living (bathing, dressing, etc.) to help maximize independence. Occupational Therapists establish household management routines; instruct patients and their families on the use of appropriate adaptive equipment. OTs also manage the fall risk of patients though proper evaluation, care planning, patient and family education, as well as communication with other clinical disciplines.
Speech-Language Pathologists (SLP)
SLPs evaluate our patients' speech, language/voice, and swallowing abilities; and also develop and implement rehabilitative services for speech, language/voice, and swallowing disorders. Our Speech-Language Pathologists select and administer diagnostic tests, providing appropriate therapeutic techniques and materials. SLPs educate patients and their families regarding the patients' treatment care plan.

"It would be very remiss of me to not write and thank you from the bottom of my heart for the excellent care your nurses bestowed. They were absolutely wonderful in every sense of the word. Their cheerful smiles (must be a job requirement!), caring ways, and expertise helped to make a painful experience more bearable…Thank you again for all you did this summer, and for all you continue to do for others each and every day of the year. You truly do make a difference. We know because we were on the receiving end."~ Linda B.
