The goal of home health Physical Therapy is to provide care in the home environment to achieve certain goals. For many, the goal is to be strong enough in the healing process to leave the home safely to attend outpatient Physical Therapy. For other patients, the home health goal is to get stronger in the home so the patient is less dependent on others for basic activities of daily living.
