At-Home Therapies for Better Outcomes

Physical therapy, occupational therapy, and speech therapy each play an important role in helping your loved one regain productivity and independence, and our therapists function as an important part of your loved one’s health care team.

An Important Part of a Holistic Care Plan

Whether recovering from a surgery or learning to live with a chronic condition, the right application of physical, occupational, and/or speech therapies can help address symptoms, alleviate pain, increase independence, and overall improve quality of life. Our therapists are an important part of our home health care professional staff, and function seamlessly in your loved one’s care network as part of their individual care plan.

Physical Therapy Strengthens Body and Mind

Physical therapists combine small movements, stretches, and exercises to help your loved one find their optimum ability to function. Our PTs can also work with your loved one to create fitness and wellness routines that promote a healthier and more active lifestyle. Regular movement and exercise helps retain mobility and can positively affect mood and cognition for many patients.

Occupational Therapy Adds Options at Home

Occupational therapists help individuals regain day-to-day skills, like dressing and feeding, by improving the skills needed to perform them. They may also, or instead, teach alternative ways to accomplish them or offer accessibility devices. Our OTs can work with your loved one to determine priorities and personal goals, as well as assess their current ability and environment.

Speech and Language Therapy

Speech and Language Therapy Fosters Independence

If your loved one is struggling with speaking or swallowing as a result of a degenerative disease, or after a stroke or heart attack, speech therapists can help improve function. Our speech therapists help your loved one understand and use language by guiding them through exercises which, in time, strengthen the muscles of the tongue, face, and throat — as well as the cognitive pathways that govern speech.

The Interim HealthCare Difference

Interim HealthCare was founded on the belief that patients deserve more than basic home care, and that an enriched home life fosters not only safety and independence but dignity, purpose, and self-worth. Now, more than 50 years later, that belief has become our standard of care which informs each interaction. And it’s the driving force behind the difference we make in our patients’ and clients’ lives.
