Our home therapy team will work with you and your caregivers to help you recover comfortably and safely at home following a stroke. We provide comprehensive rehabilitative care, including physical, speech and occupational therapy, to help you follow the treatment plan and achieve a full recovery.

When Home Health is Right for You

Strokes can affect your ability to perform routine physical or cognitive functions.  You may consider home health services to help enhance recovery at home if you, or a loved one, are experiencing any of the following:

  • Difficulty speaking or swallowing
  • Muscle weakness or trouble with mobility
  • Paralysis
  • Memory loss or confusion

In general, if you have been hospitalized for a stroke and will require assistance from a caregiver for routine daily activities, home health may be right for you.
