What is home health?

1st Texas Home Health offers nursing, rehabilitation therapy, and social work care to patients in the comfort of their home. When we receive a referral from your physician or hospitalist our staff will work with them to determine exactly what care you need to recover. Together with you and your family we set goals that will speed up your recovery. As we work to help you get better we will stay in contact with your physician and keep them informed about your progress. We will also teach you and your family any skills you need to help you recover faster. We have the staff, equipment, medical supplies, and referral sources to meet your needs. We can also assist you with referrals to other community resources, when needed.

How can physical therapy help you?

The main purpose of physical therapy is to help the patient return to active life as quickly as possible. Therapy strives to reduce pain, increase flexibility, range of motion, and function, build strength, and correct posture. Upon assessing the patient, our therapist will evaluate all components of movement including: strength, range of motion, flexibility, balance, posture, body mechanics, coordination, endurance, general mobility i.e. walking, stair climbing, getting in and out of chairs, beds, etc…. After evaluation, the therapist will develop a customized treatment program, unique to each patient, to help decrease deficits and restore function. The therapist and patient will work together as a team toward wellness.

How much does home health cost?

Traditional medicare will cover 100% of the cost. We accept most insurance plans, which can be verified during the initial informational session.
