PHYSICAL THERAPY

Physical therapy is a type of treatment you may need when health problems make it hard to move around and do everyday tasks. It helps you move better and may relieve pain. It also helps improve or restore your physical function and your fitness level. The goal of physical therapy is to make daily tasks and activities easier. For example, it may help with walking, going up stairs, or getting in and out of bed.

POST SURGERY CARE

During those critical 24 hours after coming home from a procedure, surgery or treatment, there is tremendous comfort and peace of mind knowing that our trained caregivers are present. It is important that caregivers and staff are always discreet and follow HIPAA guidelines to ensure privacy, but equally important, they are focused on the safety and well-being of the patient.

DISEASE CARE

The two biggest challenges in chronic disease are preventing the disease in the first place, and managing the condition effectively when it arises. Both of these are long-term challenges that are best addressed through an effective and ongoing relationship between the health-care provider and the patient, based on mutual respect, trust and appropriate interventions. The primary care setting is where this long-term relationship is most often established and where interventions occur.

OCCUPATIONAL THERAPY

In its simplest terms, occupational therapists and occupational therapy assistants help people across the lifespan participate in the things they want and need to do through the therapeutic use of everyday activities (occupations). Common occupational therapy interventions include helping children with disabilities to participate fully in school and social situations, helping people recovering from injury to regain skills, and providing supports for older adults...

IV & PICC LINE CARE

Peripherally inserted central catheter is a form of IV access. The catheter is inserted in a vein usually located in the arm with the catheter tip terminating in a large vein close to the heart. Our nurses will care for the PICC line... They will assess the insertion site, inspect the dressing, check for leakage, perform flushing maintenance and act according to the outcomes. The PICC can be a long term IV access device and patients are almost always discharged home with the PICC in place.
