Balance and Fall Prevention
The fear of falling is one of the most common among people living on their own. It’s also a risk that the therapists at Home Nursing With Heart can help you to prevent. Our skilled therapists evaluate your gait and movement, your vision and medications, your strengths and weaknesses and your home environment. Then, we put together a plan – and help you to execute it with regular visits and therapy sessions, along with steps you can implement on your own. Exercise and muscle strengthening, improved coordination, taking medicine properly, up-to-date glasses prescriptions and keeping furniture and other items from becoming hazards are all part of the strategy.
From communication and swallowing, to memory skills, speech therapists from Home Nursing With Heart are a valuable asset in the continuum of care from hospital to home. We are skilled and knowledgeable in the development and implementation of strategies designed to enable you to recover from limitations resulting from stroke, surgery, hearing loss, illness and other conditions. We’re also able to provide therapy services that help to improve memory skills.
