Home Care

Since late 2011, Willow Grove Physical Therapy has provided home care services for elderly patients who are not able to come in to the clinic due to transportation problems. This provides a unique opportunity for the physical therapists to see first hand what obstacles the patients are facing at home. Recommendations are made to improve safety, including suggestions for equipment or home modification.

Lynne Harding is our home care physical therapist. She schedules appointments that are convenient for her patients. After a thorough evaluation is completed, she designs a plan of care including balance, strengthening or range of motion exercises as appropriate and issues a home exercise program. Lynne brings the necessary exercise equipment and monitors each patient’s vital signs. Progress reports are sent to the referring physicians.

If you a medicare patient in need of physical therapy but are unable to come in to our clinic, please call 215-659-7759 to arrange for a home visit.
