Specialized In-Home Therapy Services

We offer our clients a wide range of specialized in-home therapy services to help them maintain their independence and well-being. Seniors who currently reside in PA near Bucks County, Montgomery County, and Lehigh County have access to the following therapy programs:

Therapists are an essential health resource for seniors who are dealing with:

  • Poor Balance
  • Injury Recovery
  • Stroke or Heart Attack Recovery
  • Surgery Recovery
  • Reduced Mobility
  • Joint Pain & Back Pain
  • Difficulty Speaking or Swallowing
Physical Therapy (PT)

Staying active and preserving mobility are the most crucial aspects of maintaining your independence as a senior citizen. When seniors struggle with declining physical capabilities, their likelihood of developing additional health problems increases. In-home physical therapy allows you to recover from serious health conditions and regain lost mobility without driving long distances to physical rehabilitation centers. Our dedicated physical therapists work diligently with patients to reduce pain and discomfort, increase mobility, and promote healthy living.

Occupational Therapy (OT)

For many seniors, declining health has complicated simple daily tasks like getting dressed, bathing, and eating. Unlike physical therapy, occupational therapy focuses on helping people perform specific tasks without feeling pain or discomfort. OT is ideal for folks who are recovering from an injury or disease that has transformed their daily routine into a daily challenge.

Speech and Language Therapy

After suffering a serious stroke, it is not uncommon for seniors to develop a condition known as aphasia. Aphasia compromises your ability to speak and comprehend language effectively, and it occurs in about 25 percent of stroke survivors. This is an issue that must be promptly addressed, because seniors must be able to articulate what they need, where they are feeling pain, etc. Our experienced speech-language pathologists work patiently with clients in the comfort of their homes to help them regain their ability to speak and comprehend language.

How to Identify When Seniors Need In-Home Therapy Services

The tricky part about determining the right time for in-home treatment is the fact that many conditions that foreshadow the need for therapy limit one’s ability to identify or articulate their health concerns. The list below contains several signs that a senior may need PT, OT, or speech therapy.

PT & OT

●     Struggling With Injury or Surgery Recovery

●     Gradually Declining Mobility

●     Frequent Pain & Discomfort

●     Incontinence

Speech & Language Therapy

●     Difficulty Comprehending Language

●     Trouble Speaking Coherently

Be sure to keep an eye out for these warning signs if you are currently taking care of an elderly family member.
