• Rest Easy with the Post-surgery Care Services from Help at Home


Physical Therapy ~ Occupational Therapy ~ Speech Therapy ~ Massage Therapy

Sometimes following surgery, an accident, or a stroke, an individual who is not eligible for Medicare home care may need private rehabilitation services of physical, occupational, speech, or massage therapy. Help at Home’s skilled therapists are dedicated to providing the best of care in a timely manner, allowing for the optimal level of independent living for each individual.

Clients love the convenience of in-home therapy-it promotes compliance, encourages a speedy recovery, and reduces the complication of having to drive to an outpatient clinic. Typical sessions are one-on-one with the therapist, in the client’s place of residence.
