Better Balance & Strength at Home

Better Balance

Amedisys has developed a program designed to prevent falls where they most often occur - in the patient's home. After an evaluation by a physical therapist, an individualized program including strength training, a home safety inspection and education is developed for those patients at high risk for falling. By improving strength, balance, endurance and flexibility, the risk for falls is decreased, and the 66 percent of falls that are deemed preventable are averted.

Better Strength

Amedisys has developed a program designed to help with strengthening, mobility and increased independence. After an evaluation by a physical therapist, an individualized program including strength training and transfer exercises is developed for each patient.
