After a nasty fall which left me incapacitated for a few weeks, my doctor prescribed in-home physical therapy to help regain strength and mobility in my legs. The agency my doctor recommended was Paradise Home Health Care. Not knowing much about other providers in the area, I made arrangements for their therapist to visit me three times a week.
The therapist they sent was very nice. The first session, we sat and spoke about my goals and he checked out my legs, balance, gait and strength. He also took my vital signs. The second session we did some gentle stretching exercises. The third session, he helped me navigate using the walker.
I had been through physical therapy on previous occasions and was always used to being challenged. I did not feel challenged or even worked very hard during my experience with Paradise Home Health Care. It seems like they were providing the bare minimum of services ... sort of like the "McDonald's" of physical therapy. I know that I was willing to work harder and longer, but my therapist's care plan was very vague and simplified. At the end of the contracted six-week period, I don't feel that I was significantly better than if I hadn't had any therapy at all.
Although most of the therapy was covered by insurance, I nearly passed out when I saw what they were charging my insurance company: $220 for each session ... and the sessions only lasted (on average) for 35 minutes. I felt that was a total ripoff, since the caliber of therapy provided was not worth what they were charging.
Paradise Home Health Care provided very basic services through their physical therapy department. Although I may be a "senior," I was ready, willing and able to be challenged. I don't feel they provided the level of home care that I would have liked, even though they were very nice and polite. I would recommend checking out your other options before making a decision.
