Skilled Therapists

Sometimes our patients need additional support to help them return to an optimal level of function. Our occupational, physical, and speech therapists are trained to provide that support.

Occupational therapy is designed to help restore a patient’s independence and mobility, while physical therapy helps to ensure a patient regains skills and confidence, and speech helps a patient regain or improve communication skills, eating, and swallowing.

The occupational therapist will:

  • Assess a patient’s current health and functional status
  • Provide patient education
  • Assess the home for safety concerns
  • Guide a patient through appropriate recreational activities
  • Plan and implement therapeutic programs
  • Instruct the patient in the use of assistive devices
  • Suggest ways of simplifying activities of daily living like doing laundry, preparing meals, bathing, grooming, etc.

The physical therapist will:

  • Perform a fall risk assessment
  • Develop an exercise regimen to increase muscle strength and range of motion
  • Provide gait training and balance training exercises
  • Leave instructions with home aides so they can help with continued improvement.

The speech therapist will:

  • Perform tests to identify language limitations
  • Perform swallow evaluations for stroke or brain-injured patients
  • Administer tests to identify neurological problems interfering with speech or language
  • Develop a treatment plan to improve formation of sounds and pronunciation of letters and words
  • Teach exercises to strengthen swallowing muscles
  • Where necessary, teach alternative methods of communication, such as sign language

We’re a Provider

We are not a registry. There’s a big difference. A registry is simply a way for independent contractors to find new customers. As a health care provider, we employ the caregivers that we match with our patients’ needs. We provide our caregivers with workers’ compensation, we cover the employer’s portion of Social Security, and we make sure our patients are at the center of all our policies.

Compassionate Competence

Our caregivers, from our RNs and LPNs, to our therapists and aides, have a proven history of delivering heartfelt, compassionate care with a notable level of professionalism. Our patients are never treated as a “task” to be accomplished. Our caregivers appreciate the trust our patients and their families place in us to not only provide necessary care, but also notice subtle changes that could signal an important change in a patient’s condition.

Responsive and Reliable

Accepting a caregiver into your home, for an hour or around the clock, can mark a stressful change. Not at Southern Comfort Home Care. We spend time to match you with the right caregiver(s) for you. In the rare instances when your regular caregiver is unavailable, we will let you know who will be at your home instead. We will never leave you wondering if your home health needs will be met.
