If you cannot get to one of Good Shepherd's convenient outpatient locations, Good Shepherd's expert therapists will come to you.
Good Shepherd Rehabilitation Network offers in-home therapy to patients throughout eastern Pennsylvania. The In-Home Therapy Program allows patients to begin their rehabilitation and live independently at home while receiving the same high quality care that has earned Good Shepherd a national reputation as a leader in rehabilitation.
The goal of In-Home Therapy is to help patients maintain a healthy lifestyle and to help them develop the needed skills so they can stay home.
To receive in-home therapy services, you must be at least 18-years-old and have a physician prescription for therapy services.
Good Shepherd's In-Home Therapy Services:
- Physical Therapy: Good Shepherd's physical therapy staff develops a plan of care that is specifically designed for you, based upon your needs and lifestyle. Each plan of care includes recovery goals that are achievable and measurable, and you are always a participating member of the therapy team.
- Occupational Therapy: Good Shepherd’s certified occupational therapists will help maintain patients’ living and working skills as they recover from injuries, surgeries or other conditions.
- Speech Therapy: The speech therapy staff offers various diagnostic and therapeutic approaches for language, speech and cognitive problems. They specialize in therapy for patients who have communication problems related to: neurological injuries and illness, central auditory processing disorders, stuttering and developmental and acquired speech disorders.
As the patient progresses and becomes stronger, his or her care may transition to one of Good Shepherd’s outpatient facilities. There, the patient will have the opportunity to take full advantage of Good Shepherd’s state-of-the-art collection of rehabilitation technologies.
