If you have recently been discharged from a hospital or rehabilitation center or received home care from a visiting nurse, you may benefit from continued private therapy services. Therapy in Your Home, a program offered by the Fellowship Senior Living rehab and wellness team based at Fellowship Village, offers comprehensive therapeutic choices that enable older adults to continue the rehabilitation process conveniently and comfortably.
The Therapy in Your Home program provides individualized therapy designed specifically for your functional needs at home. Our highly trained therapists are available to help with a home safety assessment, pain management, balance and fall prevention, swallowing difficulties, memory impairment, Parkinson’s disease and bathing, dressing and grooming techniques. Physical, occupational and speech therapies will speed your recovery from illness, injury or surgery.
There are many benefits to choosing Therapy in Your Home. A relaxed home environment fosters a special relationship with your therapist and supports your rehabilitative advancement. The plan of care developed specifically to address your unique lifestyle helps you progress in becoming independent with daily activities and helps you return to doing the things you enjoy.
Home therapy also encourages family members to be closely involved in your rehabilitation. If needed, therapists can give family or professional caregivers guidance and training that addresses your specific needs. Home therapy eliminates the burden of coordinating transportation to and from a rehab center several times a week.
The Fellowship Senior Living rehab and wellness team also offers comprehensive outpatient rehab services at Fellowship Village. If prescribed by a physician, outpatient rehab and home therapy may be covered under Medicare Part B. Check with your insurance carrier for complete coverage details, as plans vary.
