Home Exercise Program (HEP)

The success of any exercise program lies in the patient’s willingness and compliance.  That is why we at Universal Home Care designed our exclusive Home Exercise Program (HEP) to educate patients on individualized exercises to improve personal health.

Our therapists possess years of experience in personal fitness and are certified to work with you or your loved one at home by providing instructions/demonstrations for continuity of therapy during days that skilled therapy services are not being provided.

We believe that one of the keys to our patient’s success is to collaboratively work with them in developing a routine of physical activities and exercises that is unique to their situation.  In fact, it is you (the patient) who controls the recovery process by utilizing the education, methods and skills provided to them by our therapist.

Along with educating our patients on techniques for improving mobility and function, our HEP Team will also assist with isolating pain symptoms, fall prevention methods, posture alignment and ultimately overall independence.

The HEP program begins with an initial evaluation, followed by continuous monitoring which at any time may be upgraded throughout the course of the program so that the patient is familiar and compliant with the plan that was specifically designed for them.
