Therapists can assess patients in their actual environment and provide better treatment approach to manage issues that do not come up in a clinic/facility. Often, the patients get discharged from the facility confidently by their team of professionals and when patients come home, are unable to apply their skills learned from the facility due to completely different environment. The height of the steps, thickness of railing, height of pull up bar, texture of the flooring, type of carpeting, etc. are all essential information needed when training patients to be totally independent.
Transportation- Most elderly do not drive or are safe to drive. They often rely on family members or taxi service to take them to appointments. This results to some cancellations of scheduled treatments and interferes with your progress.
Convenience- Patients do not have to spend unnecessary preparation and travel time to receive therapy services. Most elderly have issues with muscle strength, balance or activity tolerance, making them unsafe to go out and deal with unfamiliar environment or changing weather condition.
One-On-One Treatment- Our therapists provide 100% individual treatment. No unnecessary distractions from typical office environment, other therapists or other patients, etc.
The frequency depends on the recommendation of your physician and the assessment of your therapist. The most common frequency is three times per week.

The therapy cap may change every year. However, Congress has passed an extension of therapy cap EXEMPTION where therapy can be continued if it is deemed medically necessary by the physician and the therapist.
