Rehabilitation and Therapy

Excellent Home Care Services provides Physical, Occupational and Speech Therapy services under the care prescribed by your doctor and our licensed therapists.

Our skilled and experienced therapists can assist physicians and patients with customized programs that reduce pain and increase mobility, strength, flexibility and daily functions.

Services are provided by Physical Therapists, Occupational Therapists and Speech-Language Pathologists.

PHYSICAL THERAPISTS (PT)

Our PT’s provide therapy for medical problems or other health-related conditions that cause pain, limit ability to move, or limit the performance of functional activities.

They include therapy for Post-Operative Rehabilitation where the therapy emphasizes on regaining strength and function after a surgical procedure. Our PT’s also provide therapy after an accident, stroke or other physical impairment based on assessment of joints, muscles and movement coordination.

Our PT’s evaluate individuals, diagnose conditions, and develop management plans using treatment techniques that promote the ability to move, reduce pain, restore function, and prevent disability. They provide care in hospitals, clinics, rehabilitation centers and in the patient’s home.

OCCUPATIONAL THERAPISTS (OT)

Occupational Therapists work with disabled people to enable them to maximize their skills and abilities. Occupational therapy gives people the skills necessary for living meaningful and satisfying lives.

Services typically include customized treatment programs to improve one’s ability to perform daily activities, comprehensive home evaluations, performance skills assessments and treatment.

Excellent Home Care Services provides occupational therapy to people with work-related injuries including lower back problems or repetitive strain injuries, physical or psychological limitations following a stroke, brain injury or heart attack.

Special programs are also provided for age-related conditions such as arthritis, neurodegenerative movement disorders such as multiple sclerosis, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, or Parkinson’s disease. OT is also provided for people born with birth injuries, learning difficulties, or developmental disabilities. We also have special programs for people diagnosed with schizophrenia, ADHD, mental health difficulties and post-traumatic stress.

SPEECH-LANGUAGE PATHOLOGISTS (SLP)

Speech and Language Pathologists work with patients with speech disorders from a wide variety of causes and also deal with disorders of swallowing. They also assist in the diagnosis of laryngeal dysfunction including hoarseness. SLP includes prevention, diagnosis, habilitation, and rehabilitation of communication, swallowing and other digestive disorders; elective modification of communication behaviors; and enhancement of communication.

Depending on the nature and severity of the disorder, common treatments may range from physical strengthening exercises, instructive or repetitive practice and drilling, to the use of audio-visual aids and introduction of strategies to facilitate functional communication. Speech therapists are also trained to assess, treat and manage swallowing difficulties.

Examples of patients treated by Speech Pathologists include children with speech disorders, adults after laryngectomy, patients with swallowing disorders from neurological disease, and performers with laryngeal problems.
