Therapy Services

Because joint replacements such as knees and hips are more common among the older patient, physical therapy parameters can be adjusted to meet their special needs. 

Therapy ServicesSummit therapists have many years of expertise in encouraging the senior to become a partner in their rehabilitation process, and are committed to help older adults achieve the best possible outcome post surgery. Many seniors are reluctant or unable to participate in out-patient therapy once they leave the hospital, often due to lack of transportation.

Increasing the patient's ability to move around, strengthening the stamina of the frail, and decreasing the risk for falls are an important part of geriatric home health care. Summit Home Health Care does it all.
