What Is Home Health Care At Suarez PT?
The Suarez Physical Therapy “care.experience” our patients, providers, and attorneys have grown to love is now being offered in the Home Health Care setting!
Our goal, as SPT en Casa clinicians, is to accommodate motor-vehicle accident and personal injury rehabilitation patients unable to start outpatient physical therapy due to transportation or post-surgical limitations.
The best part about us now offering this additional service is that it allows for the patient to avoid delay of treatment and much needed care, but also provides a quick and safe transition into our outpatient physical therapy setting.

What Should I Expect On My First Home Health Visit?
Your assigned physical therapist will call and/or text you (based on your preference) for an appointment reminder the day before and will reach out 1-hour prior to your session the day of. If you do not respond and confirm appointment, the PT will NOT make the trip to your home.
Once your personal licensed physical therapist arrives, they will conduct an initial evaluation to identify your impairments and limitations. Please be prepared to discuss details of your motor-vehicle accident or personal injury accident as well as general health and past medical history on the first visit.
After the evaluation, based on your diagnosis and your personal goals, they will create a personalized treatment plan for you. Your PT will create a home exercise program (HEP) with specific exercise that you can do on your own to help assist with your recovery process. Your physical therapist will explain each exercise and make sure you understand the proper technique. This will be the extent of the treatment for this visit. Your next visit will be a full 1-hour treatment session with one of our licensed physical therapist assistants.
How Frequent Will I Need Home Health Physical Therapy?
Most prescriptions and treatment frequencies are for 2-3 visits per week, for 4-weeks, but this will vary based on your condition and physical ability.
Physical therapy sessions will typically last an hour. Treatment plan length will vary based on home bound necessity. You will see your PT every 7th visit or every 21-days; whichever comes first, and all other sessions will be with your PTA. Please make sure to keep your regular follow-up visits with your doctor and let us know of appointments so that we can update your physician/attorney on your progress.
