San Antonio Therapy
Summit Home Health & Hospice offers the following therapy services in your community and/or home:
- Physical Therapy
- Occupational Therapy
- Speech Therapy
A physical therapist examines each patient to determine their functional capabilities. Then, he or she creates a rehabilitation strategy that is realistic. The doctor will consult with the patient and his family to devise home exercises to improve strength, range of motion, and endurance gait training.
Occupational therapy is a form of treatment that can be used for someone with difficulty with different functional issues. It can be hard to dress, wash, shop, and transport food or other personal items safely. People with more severe conditions, like multiple sclerosis and heart disease, as well as arthritis, cancer, and stroke, can also consider occupational therapy. Occupational therapists work closely alongside patients and caregivers.
Speech and language pathologists assist patients with communication and cognition. They also assist with swallowing problems and other disorders. This is a broad range of services that can be provided to people with language, speech, or thinking skills and fluency. Speech and language pathologists can offer specialized training to patients who have difficulties swallowing.
We believe that home health should be a shared concern of the client, their family, and their healthcare professionals.
