Our team can assist with recommendations for adaptive equipment, joint range of motion, balance, and pain reduction. 

According to The National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke, Supportive health care is best provided by multidisciplinary teams of professionals such as physicians; pharmacists; physical, occupational, speech, and respiratory therapists; nutritionists; social workers; clinical psychologists; and home care and hospice nurses. These teams can design an individualized treatment plan and provide special equipment aimed at keeping people as mobile, comfortable, and independent as possible.
