Balance and mobility conditions

Among older adults, falls can have serious consequences. Even the fear of falling can shake one’s confidence and reduce a person’s enjoyment of life. Our skilled nurses and therapists can help identify the root causes of balance issues, address tripping hazards in your living space, and provide useful strategies to reduce the risk of falling, so you can gain the confidence to get back on your feet again.

Our specialty program

Our Safe Strides® balance and mobility program uses a combination of evidence-based care interventions, education and preventive strategies to safely improve your balance and increase your confidence and functional independence. Through a comprehensive assessment, our multidisciplinary team of nurses and therapists will help determine the causes of your fall risk by examining the systems of your body involved in maintaining balance. Then we’ll collaborate with you, your family, your caregivers and your primary health care provider to develop a care plan that works best for you.

Frequently asked questions

Home health is designed to help you recover in the comfort of your home through skilled nursing and physical, occupational and speech therapy. Your health care provider can order home health if he or she determines your condition requires you to remain in the home for rehab and recovery from illness, injury or surgery.

While you are receiving skilled care for your condition, Medicare may also cover a limited number of hours for a home health aide to assist you with the activities of daily living.

Home health may be covered 100% by Medicare for those who qualify, and we accept most forms of insurance. Part of the admission process includes verification of insurance. Our team is happy to help answer your financial and insurance questions. You can contact us here.
