Orthopaedic Program

Compass Home Health & Rehab is a Medicare certified home health agency that has a dedicated team of therapists who just provide services for a variety of orthopedic surgeries. Highlights include:

  • Physical Therapy care to be initiated within 24 hours of facility discharge
    We do not utilize physical therapy assistants on any of our joint replacements
  • Seven-day-a-week availability
  • Medication education and monitoring
  • Custom built 4” step that is reversible to a standard step height that was made to fit between walkers for safer promotion of both open and closed chain therapy exercises with lower extremity joint replacements/surgeries.
  • No challenges if the patient’s plan of care requires the skills of a nurse, we just do not offer a dedicated team as we do with therapy as most of the joint replacements are therapy only cases.
  • We offer strong stability inside this program as both our Director of Rehab and Orthopedic Manager each have 10+ years home health experience with the same owner, who is also a physical therapist.
