I have worked in home care as a physical therapist for 26 years. Over those years I have helped many patients improve their level of function in order to be able to stay in their own homes and achieve the fitness they need to meet their goals. One of the first steps we take is setting goals.
What do you want to be able to do?
Once you know what you want to do, consider how you can accomplish those goals? Accomplishing your goals may require you to get moving, get stronger, improve balance and/or become more flexible.

How Can Hulst Jepsen @Home Help?
We offer 15-minute screens in our clinics to get you started. If you are not mobile enough to get to a clinic (such as immediately after surgery), we offer in home “outpatient” therapy until you improve enough to continue therapy in clinic. We also have a private pay option for long-term ongoing therapy in your home.
It is important to use proper form while exercising. Proper technique prevents injuries and makes sure you are getting the most benefit from the activity. During your Hulst Jepsen @Home therapy sessions, we will customize your therapy plan to meet your specific goals, focusing on proper technique to safely progress your mobility while improving your strength, balance and flexibility.
