I Never Heard of...
I never heard of Achieva Rehab's In-Home Physical Therapy Program. If I only had a dime for every time that phrase has met my ears, I'd have a lot of dimes.
And usually the same folks that work with us after lacking awareness of our In-Home PT program also say that they are so glad that they found us because of the result that they got from our program. If I had a dime for every time I heard that, I'd have a pirate's booty!
I'm trying my best to make people aware of what we do and how we do it and why we have overwhelming evidence and feedback that it's simply a better way to help people who are struggling to remain mobile and independent because of pain, weakness, falls, dizziness.
So, I hope you will take time to read this and pass it along especially to older people in your lives so that more and more people will know about what we consider a hidden treasure. First, our program structure is exactly the same as any outpatient provider of physical therapy with SEVERAL HUGE DIFFERENCES. The first is that we see our patients in their homes and not a physical clinic. And secondly, because of that, we are able to see our patients one-on-one with no distractions and our complete focus for 60 minute visits.
That's what the Achieva Rehab In-Home PT Program is. But, we go a little further...sort of like when you go out for dinner for your birthday and unexpectedly, the restaurant brings you a great big ice cream sundae for desert...it's quite a great surprise bonus. So, the bonuses that you get with Achieva Rehab:
As George Burns said "It's Just You and Me, Kid!" That's right...there are no other patients. There are no phone calls. There are no other therapists. There are no distractions. That allows us to focus 100% of our time on treating, training, and teaching our patients.
60 minutes of time is given completely to the patient. When compared to a traditional clinic with busy therapists and waiting rooms and distractions, that means we provide 2 to 3 times more that a patient would be getting in a busy clinic.
Speaking of waiting rooms...you don't have to get ready to go anywhere and you don't have to wait! We come to you and we get started as soon as we walk in the door!
Speaking of busy clinics...you know why they are so busy? Because they have to pay for that clinic and pay for the equipment and funnel that money back to the corporation which guides their judgments....Achieva Rehab's owner is also a treating therapist and the financial bottom line is not the main concern.
Speaking of equipment...why is it that people think they need equipment in order to improve their mobility and regain independence? Why do people need equipment to help them get stronger so that they can get out of a chair...let's work on getting out of a chair. Why do people think they need machines in order to do the steps better...let's work on the steps. Why do people think they need machines to improve their balance...heck, I could replicate any balance machine simply with a couch cushion! You don't need machines or equipment!!
For anyone who might be skeptical as to what can be accomplished without machines, please see the dozens of reviews we have on our website or on Google or Facebook...those results had zero to do with machines and gym equipment and way more to do with the human spirit and ingenuity of great therapists!!
6. The Grandma Standard!!! Ahhhhh...Grandma (and Grandpa!!)...our Grandma Standard is our simple guiding principle for all that we do. Our decisions, treatment, education, time is given to all our patients as if you were our own grandmother! Simple...you just can't get that from other programs.
There are great physical therapy programs out there and if you are affliated with one that works for you and your family, I couldn't be happier. You already know what our profession can do for you. I just want people to know Achieva Rehab's In-Home PT Program is an AMAZING choice for any older adult who is struggling with their independence or mobility. For anyone who is fearful that they may no longer be able to stay home alone or are afraid to go out into the community. Our website is full of information that can help you if you fall into that category and we are always here for you in Schuylkill, Luzerne, Carbon Counties.
If you help us spread the word about this program, maybe we can help more people in more counties in PA! Fingers crossed!
