Home-Based Physical Therapy for Older Adults


Physical therapy is a growing need for older adults, especially those that suffer from various musculoskeletal and neurological conditions. As older adults, certain barriers that limit access to physical therapy services, including transportation issues, time constraints, and even an ongoing pandemic to name a few. This highlights the advantages of an in-home treatment option in delivering an effective and efficient PT care in the comfort of your own homes.

We will come to you at your convenience…

We see it all the time – one of the biggest issues facing older patients who need physical therapy is transportation the distance. This becomes more problematic for those suffering from severe weakness due, which can make it difficult just to get in and out of a car. This problem can be eliminated with in-home physical therapy and will save precious time and stress.

PT at your most comfortable time and day…

Scheduling transportation and appointment windows is time-consuming and stressful. We make appointments with you for when it works best…for you! You get one-on-one treatment in your own home so you’re able to maximize your care.

Quality PT care together with your family

Another advantage of home-based physical therapy is the involvement of your family members. Not only can they learn how to best support you, they will also see how essential it is to your well-being. Not to mention the opportunity to bond and improve your relationships! Training the family members to assist in simple exercises also ensures continuity of care and improved outcomes of treatment.

Because we care, we value your safety…

Our top priority is your safety. With the ongoing pandemic, it is an utmost concern to ensure the safety of our older patients. A PT who is fully aware of the risks encourages a patient and the family to keep the PT treatments well within the confines of their own homes while following safety and precautionary procedures.
