Physical Therapy at acac is now able to provide Outpatient Physical Therapy at home.
PT@acac At Home can provide one-on-one therapy in a patient’s home, either as the complete outpatient rehabilitation program or as a bridge from the hospital or home health therapy program into a more traditional outpatient physical therapy clinic.
Who would benefit from PT@acac At Home?
- Patients discharged from acute care/Medicare Part A, that may still benefit from at-home therapy.
- Patients who need a treatment program that is built around how they live.
- Patients whose treatment goals are to gain greater independence or function in their own homes.
- Patients who have other medical conditions that make it challenging or not safe to come to an outpatient PT clinic.
- Patients who have barriers to regularly getting to a clinic such as transportation needs, childcare or elder care responsibilities.
- Patients who may need to start or complete their outpatient PT program in the home instead of the clinic.
- Patients who may need an in-home assessment as part of their comprehensive outpatient physical therapy rehabilitation.
- Patients who have caregivers that may need one on one training to be able to successfully assist them at home.
