Orthopedic conditions

The rehabilitative services you need following orthopedic surgery are often just as important as the procedure itself. Research shows that in-home recovery is not only more comfortable for patients but also more cost-effective, and most importantly, can result in better outcomes. Our care team brings expert rehabilitation services to you so you can recover and reclaim your independence.

Our specialty program

We begin our care before you leave the hospital. Our care team will speak with you to get a clear picture of your home environment and what needs you may require. Once you return home, we’ll work with you, your loved ones and your surgeon to develop a care plan that’s tailored to your individual needs. Our skilled nurses and therapists will provide evidence-based rehabilitative care designed to help you achieve the best results in the comfort of your own home, so you can get back to doing the things you enjoy.

How Therapy at Home Helps

Frequently asked questions

Home health is skilled clinical care ordered by a health care providerThese services might include things like nursing, physical therapy and occupational therapy and are designed to help you manage your condition and regain your independence after illness, injury or surgery.

Personal home care assistance involves non-clinical services, such as help around the house, transportation, bathing and light meal preparation. 

Personal home care is often needed alongside home health services, and we can help coordinate the two levels of care. A limited number of your personal home care hours may be covered by Medicare while you’re receiving clinical in-home care, but it’s generally paid separately or covered by private insurance or other government programs.

Home health may be covered 100% by Medicare for those who qualify, and we accept most forms of insurance. Part of the admission process includes verification of insurance. Our team is happy to help answer your financial and insurance questions. You can contact us here.
