In-Home Physical Therapy Services

Physical therapy plays an integral role in the lives of older adults with chronic conditions, like arthritis and osteoporosis. Our in-home physical therapists provide personalized care to your loved ones from the comfort of their homes, which saves them time and money on traveling to see a physical therapist.

What Physical Therapy Services Can Be Expected At-home?

Physical therapy for seniors includes things like:

  • Pain relief stretches and exercises
  • Stretches to improve flexibility and range of motion
  • Exercises to strengthen muscles and increase balance
  • Education about self-care, medication, and other factors that affect health.

Why Is Physical Therapy Care Important For Seniors? 

Physical therapy, when practiced with seniors, can reduce the risk of falls by 25% or more.

Because the elderly are often homebound, they are not as easily able to participate in physical therapy at a clinic. At-home physical therapy provides pain relief, improves flexibility and balance, and educates them on ways to improve daily living activities.

In addition to receiving care, older adults also have the opportunity to form connections with their physical therapists. The familiarity of the environment and their new companionship makes them more relaxed and gives our therapists insight into their lives, like how to make it easier to bathe, stretch, or complete household chores; therefore improving their physical mobility scores and decreasing their rates of disability.

Physical therapists also take the time to discuss any changes they are experiencing at home, so both parties can work together to adjust living areas accordingly and give your loved one the best possible home life.
