First, let me ask you a few questions:
- How would you treat your client that presents with gait and balance deficits and will definitely have difficulty to attend outpatient physical therapy at a clinic?
- How can you make sure that your client who recently has been discharged from a home health agency and has a history of falls, doesn’t decline and experience more falls because transportation to an outpatient clinic is too difficult to arrange?
The answer for both questions is Reach Care Rehabilitation.
Since each of your clients are unique, we create personalized treatment sessions. Reach Care Rehab Physical Therapists will tailor our client’s program to the specific challenges they face day to day.
Because we bill under Traditional Medicare Part B our clients do not have to be homebound and in need of skilled nursing services.
