Physical Therapists

Detty Home Care Service physical therapists work closely with caregivers and patients to help patients become as active and independent as their condition will allow. Working closely with your physician’s directives, our physical therapists will assess your condition and provide counseling to create and implement a home care treatment plan, including specific goals for recovery.

Detty Home Care Service can also evaluate your home and make recommendations to improve safety and promote confidence and mobility. If you are planning a medical procedure, we can provide evaluations and advice before and after surgery.

What do physical therapists do?
Physical therapists are licensed professionals whose primary goal is to develop, maintain and restore maximum movement and functional ability throughout the patient’s life. These specialists are especially needed in instances where mobility is hindered by the process of aging or due to injury or disease.

Physical therapy is a key part of most rehabilitation and home care programs, with a focus on fitness, health, and enhancing the patient’s quality of life. Physical therapists often consult with a variety of other professionals, such as physicians, medical nurses, educators, social workers, occupational therapists and speech therapists.

Education, exercise and evaluation
Detty Home Care Service rehabilitation programs are designed to empower patients and their caregivers. Our patients learn transfer techniques and bed mobility, how to manage pain, and how to use mobility-assisting devices such as crutches or walkers. In addition, patients learn stretches and exercises that improve coordination, strength, endurance, balance and range of motion.

Working toward recovery and independence
At Detty Home Care Service, we are committed to the empowerment of our patients and their families. As part of our company’s mission, our home care physical therapists promote well-being and self-respect by helping our patients return to healthy living, take over their own care as soon as possible, and maximize their day-to-day independence.

When does home physical therapy make sense?

  • When you are experiencing reduced coordination, strength, or balance
  • Following a recent fall, a sports injury or a medical event such as joint replacement surgery that has made mobility difficult
  • When continued therapy is needed following a stay in a short-term rehabilitation facility
  • If you are experiencing mobility-inhibiting symptoms from an ongoing medical condition such as arthritis or Parkinson’s disease
  • When your home must be adapted for safety or a recovery
