Physical, Occupational, Speech and Language Therapy

If a surgery, injury, illness or accident has made it difficult for you to get around, North Shore-LIJ Home Care Network can provide physical therapy, occupational therapy, speech therapy and language therapy services at home.

Home Physical Therapy

Our physical therapists work with you to improve your strength, flexibility, range of motion, balance and coordination. They help you to improve your ability to walk, get in and out of bed, self-propel a wheelchair and move across surfaces (e.g. from a wheelchair to a bed). With home physical therapy, you’ll reach goals that you and your home physical therapist have set together.

In-home Occupational Therapy

In-home occupational therapy services can help you maximize your independence by returning you to dressing, bathing, grooming, eating and handling basic household activities on your own. 

At-home Speech Therapy and Language Therapy

At-home speech therapy and language therapy specialists can help improve your communication skills, including:

  • Speech and language: word finding, listening, reading comprehension, intonation, speaking clearly, volume and swallowing

  • Cognitive skills: improving attention, memory, verbal and visual problem solving

  • Social skills: interacting effectively with other people


Depending on your condition and needs, you may also receive care and support from one or more of the following professionals in addition to your home physical therapy, occupational therapy, speech therapy or language therapy specialist — all coordinated by your registered nurse:

  • A social workerwill assess your emotional, environmental and social needs and may help with long-term planning and referrals to community resources.

  • A home health aide or personal care aidecan provide assistance with bathing, dressing, laundry, light housekeeping and preparing healthy meals.
