Orange County Hospice & Physical Therapy Services
Improve Mobility, Flexibility & Quality of Life
Hospice care isn’t just about ending life with dignity. It’s also about living life with significance through the end of a life-limiting illness. Physical therapy can make a major difference in mobility and overall function for patients receiving hospice or in-home care. With physical therapy, patients can work to make each day as effective as it can be.
What Are the Benefits of Adding Physical Therapy to Hospice Care?
Maintaining mobility or gaining additional ability helps those facing a life-limiting illness feel more independent, preserve their dignity, and do more for themselves. This ability reduces the weight on caregivers while also giving patients a healthy sense of confidence and purpose amid illness.
Patients receiving physical therapy services in Orange County from Valley Oaks Hospice have the advantage of preparing to live, not just preparing to depart. The care makes the time they have left much more productive and enjoyable for both themselves and their families.
