Orthopedic conditions

The rehabilitative services you need following orthopedic surgery are often just as important as the procedure itself. Research shows that in-home recovery is not only more comfortable for patients but also more cost-effective, and most importantly, can result in better outcomes. Our care team brings expert rehabilitation services to you so you can recover and reclaim your independence.

Our specialty program

We begin our care before you leave the hospital. Our care team will speak with you to get a clear picture of your home environment and what needs you may require. Once you return home, we’ll work with you, your loved ones and your surgeon to develop a care plan that’s tailored to your individual needs. Our skilled nurses and therapists will provide evidence-based rehabilitative care designed to help you achieve the best results in the comfort of your own home, so you can get back to doing the things you enjoy.

Is our program 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.
