At-home physical therapy and rehabilitative services offer several advantages to patients, especially if the patient has limited mobility. However, if the patient is elderly, at-home physical therapy offers many more benefits than it does for the average patient.
If you are considering at-home physical therapy services for an elderly loved one, you should consider the benefits of this type of service compared to physical therapy that requires your loved one to travel to an office. Some of the benefits include:
- No travel required, which is helpful if the patient is no longer able to drive
- Familiar surroundings, which is helpful if your loved one has dementia or memory loss
- Practical assistance, which helps your loved one learn to navigate his/her normal home routine with the help of a physical therapist.
At Arrow Physical Therapy and Rehabilitation, we offer physical therapy services in the comfort of your own home. We realize that sometimes patients are unable to come into our office, or even that in some cases, performing rehabilitation services in a patient’s home is more beneficial to the patient than having them come into the office. Because of our patient-centric values, we are able to provide at-home physical therapy services to patients who live in the Edison, Woodbridge and Union, New Jersey areas.
Gain peace of mind with at-home physical therapy for your elderly loved one
One of the main causes of worry for people who have elderly loved ones who live on their own is that their loved one will fall and injure themselves at home. As we age, we tend to lose muscle mass, which can result in compromised balance and more fragile bones. For this reason, a fall that may not impact a middle-aged adult may cause significant injury for an elderly person.
During our at-home physical therapy services, we help make sure that your loved one can perform daily activities, such as getting out of bed, etc. We can also ensure that your loved one’s home has the right handicap accessibility (if needed) to help prevent falls and injuries.
