Therapy and rehabilitation are a suggested treatment and preventative method for people with a number of medical conditions. A person may be preparing for, or recovering from, surgery, and needs pre and post-operative therapy. They may be dealing with a debilitating disease or disability. Others need assistance because chronic illnesses are affecting their mobility and physical abilities. In whatever circumstance, the burden of traveling to and from a therapy facility can almost be too much to handle. This is why in-home therapies are becoming a popular choice for those that need it most. Benefits of in-home therapy include:
- Convenience – There is no coordinating of rides or travel time required. It also isn’t necessary to wait for your appointment.
- Energy saving – When you are ill, disabled or recovering from surgery, the last thing you want is to spend your energy getting up/down stairs or in/out of the car. In home therapy allows patients to save their energy for other aspects of life.
- Fully functional – Not only is the therapist teaching the patient new techniques, he or she is doing it in the patient’s home – a completely realistic, practical environment.
- Encouraging & supportive – The familiarity of the same therapist is comforting to patients, and the partnership formed offers a unique type of support.
