People want to remain independent and have freedom in their homes and communities but as we get older, we sometimes need some tools and assistance to accomplish this goal. This is where HOP-UP-PT comes in. Doctors, community centers, or older adult themselves can recommend the HOP-UP-PT program. It has been scientifically proven; older adults who have participated in the program were 8 times less likely to fall as compared to those who didn’t participate in HOP-UP-PT. A licensed physical therapist who has been specially certified in the HOP-UP-PT program will visit the older adult’s home to deliver therapy treatments specially targeted to address the various issues that may put an older adult at risk of not living safely in their home. Take the next steps toward staying independent now.
Physical therapists, as licensed healthcare professionals, are experts in addressing a wide variety of the health and safety issues that people may face as they get older.
The HOP-UP-PT treatments have been specifically designed and scientifically proven to improve issues like balance, home safety, fall prevention, fitness, and overall health.
HOP-UP-PT therapists are experts in connecting the dots. After completion of the program, you and your physical therapist will develop an individualized plan for long term success and what resources are available within your community.
