Home Health Physical Therapy

home health physical therapy boca ratonOur licensed home health 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 is 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.

Physical therapists who choose to practice in home health often describe themselves as having a greater sense of autonomy, uninterrupted one-on-one time with patients, and deep appreciation from patients and their families.
