VNA Home Health Brings Rehabilitation Therapy to You
Visiting Nurse Association (VNA) offers a comprehensive rehabilitation program for people who need physical, occupational or speech therapy, as well as respiratory therapy. VNA rehabilitation services services also include our Strong Foundations Orthopedic program to assist with post-op recovery for patients needing total joint replacements.
If you need home health rehabilitation, VNA’s accredited therapists will evaluate your needs and work closely with your primary physician to coordinate a customized care plan. Through our results-driven approach to rehabilitation and therapeutic instruction, VNA can help you regain strength, mobility and independence.
Physical therapy is the use of exercise and other targeted activities that help condition your muscles to restore strength and movement. VNA Home Health provides physical therapy to patients with injuries, deformities or disabilities, and severe weaknesses caused by surgery, including total knee and total hip replacements.
Our physical therapy program is designed to help you restore capabilities in the following areas:
- General or specific movement
- Using stairs
- Navigating around architectural barriers and obstacles in the home
VNA Home Health physical therapists also provide these other helpful services:
- Home safety assessments
- Pain control through the use of modalities like ultrasounds and electrotherapy
- Patient/caregiver instruction and education
Occupational therapy is designed to help you regain or develop everyday skills for an independent and productive life. VNA Home Health provides occupational therapy to patients with permanent or temporary impairments that diminish physical or mental abilities to perform routine tasks around the home.
By teaching you how to safely use various techniques and equipment, VNA’s occupational therapists help you recover daily functions like grooming, cooking and eating, managing medications and more.
At its core, speech therapy helps you regain the basics of speaking, primarily through oral motor exercises, audio-visual aids and alternative communication devices.
VNA’s speech therapy program also extends beyond verbal communication. We evaluate and treat conditions that affect chewing and swallowing, memory, language processing, hearing and more. If you have been afflicted with dysphasia, stroke, cancer, multiple sclerosis or any other condition that impacts speech abilities, VNA can help.
VNA Home Health has therapists that are certified in LSVT LOUD® & VitalStim therapies if your physician determines you qualify.
