Header Paragraph: 

Physical and Occupational Therapy is an important part of your Home Health care plan since our overarching goal is to help you regain and maintain your independence. Receiving physical and occupational therapy at home rather than at a facility helps you gain strength and mobility where you spend most of your time. In addition, your VNA Health Group physical and occupational therapist will identify areas in your home that might put you at risk for a fall and further injury and suggest ways to make your home safer.
