Home Health Care Services
Community VNA’s home health care team includes rehabilitation therapists who help patients safely regain their ability to move and perform their daily activities through physical, occupational, and speech therapies.
Our physical therapists help you to improve your strength and balance, increasing your ability to move safely and to walk. Our PTs also help patients learn to safely use walkers, canes, wheelchairs or prostheses. We provide home safety evaluations and teach fall-prevention methods. We specialize in working with orthopedic patients and their caregivers.
Occupational therapists help patients regain strength and dexterity for the activities of daily living, such as bathing, dressing, grooming and other actions involved in self-care. Occupational therapists help those who are recuperating to build endurance, balance and stamina so they can move more easily and safely.
Speech and language therapists (speech pathologists) help patients improve their swallowing abilities, regain their verbal skills or adopt new communication techniques.
