Nursing Plus of Broward offers a wide range of Therapy Services in the comfort of your home or loved one’s place of residence. All senior home Therapy Services are designed to your loved one’s medical requirements and integrated into his or her total home care routine. Our Therapists work with the senior’s physician, family, and any other caregivers to return and maximize physical strength and functionality as much as possible.
The focus of Occupational Therapy is to help a person achieve independence in his or her daily life. Our Occupational Therapists are dedicated to promoting overall health and functionality – we focus on activities of daily living such as bathing, dressing, and grooming.
We assess both your loved one’s physical requirements and anything in the home that impedes their ability to function at home. Our Occupational Therapists are trained to identify problem areas and design treatments to improve function and remove impediments.
Simple adjustments can be made to ease the everyday difficulties that are faced when you are dealing with a medical condition. We take a holistic approach in Occupational Therapy Care that will assist your loved one with safely navigating the home and doing daily tasks that have become too difficult or too unsafe to do alone. We’ll listen to your loved one’s needs/problem areas, observe current functions, and advise solutions to implement changes in the home’s environment that will facilitate the functionality of daily living for everyone. If needed, we’ll also make recommendations for walkers, shower chairs or tub benches, commodes, grab bars, and other adaptive devices for your loved one.
Whether it is a reacher to grab things in higher places or a specially designed set of eating and drinking ware, our focus is to advise your loved one with solutions for reducing or eliminating some of the frustrations of daily living.
Post-operative surgery, recent injuries, and Chronic Conditions each present unique challenges to living life to the fullest capacity. We are here to advise and teach your loved one how to increase his or her strength and ability to achieve the best functionality at home. Exercises to improve the everyday activities of your life – are designed for your specific needs.
The goal of Physical Therapy is to relieve pain, restore function, and obtain/maintain maximum performance. Nursing Plus works in conjunction with your physician and uses the latest in teaching, exercise, massage, and applicable therapy treatments and modalities to achieve this. Physical Therapists most often treat functional problems such as balance issues, poor endurance, difficulty walking, and poor muscle strength.
Post-operative surgery and recent fractures often require in-home treatment to aid in the healing process. Our Physical Therapists work with your physician to design an exercise and treatment program that is targeted for the compromised area.
Musculoskeletal Issues are natural as we grow older and physical therapists offer specifically designed exercises and treatments to increase both strength and balance. Retraining and strengthening your body’s musculoskeletal system is the key to sustaining greater independence and protection against falls or injuries.
Under the direction of your physician our Physical Therapists can design a home exercise program specifically with your health in mind.
Exercise routines are designed to strengthen your heart and body after a heart attack, building healthier habits including regular exercise and reducing stress.
Neurological Problems resulting from injury, stroke, or illness may be minimized by strategic, incremental therapeutic exercises designed to lessen their impact. Post-stroke Physical Therapy is designed to optimize recovery and retrain your body’s neuromuscular system to compensate for compromised muscles.
Many illnesses, including widespread Lyme Disease, can cause inner ear disturbances, leaving you with constant dizziness. This vertigo disturbs your sense of balance and makes you vulnerable to falls and fractures. We offer the Physical Therapy to teach you how to improve balance while strengthening your muscular system to help you prevent potential falls.
Speech Therapy is a treatment that focuses on improving a person’s ability to communicate effectively and eat/drink safely. Each Speech Therapist, or Speech Language Pathologist (SLP), is able to evaluate and treat speech, voice, language, cognition, and swallowing issues in the familiar surroundings of your home. This in-home diagnosis and treatment affords optimal results without the complications of doctors visits, follow-up treatments, and coordinating appointment times with family caregivers’ schedules. Home Therapy Treatments also remove the external distractions and stressors which can cause discomfort for some in new environments.
Stroke and Congenital Disorders can cause swallowing difficulties. Developing protocols to assist, as well as exercises to improve, the ability to safely swallow are optimized by observing and adjusting daily routines. In-home treatment helps patients remain relaxed, an essential part of learning new swallowing techniques. Developing an exercise routine to strengthen the mouth muscles and improve tongue movement can improve chewing as well as swallowing, too.
Aphasia, the loss of ability to understand or express speech is usually a result of suffering from a stroke or traumatic brain injury. Developing hand gestures understood by family members and caregivers is an effective means of communicating when speech is significantly impaired, or as an aid while more of the speech function returns. Communication is essential for your loved one’s quality of life and our in-home diagnosis and therapy treatments are best made in comfortable surroundings.
From the moment you call, we strive to create the plan not only suited to health needs, but one that improves health and enhances the quality of life of our seniors. We’ll conduct an in-depth analysis of you or your loved one’s physical and emotional needs to develop a plan suited to enhance their safety and quality in a place they call home. We also take careful consideration of personality and character to select the best-matched therapist for you or your loved one to maximize comfort during treatment.
