I was discharged from home PT at the end of September, following several weeks of rehabilitation at the Bloomfield facility. This was not my first experience with rehab of PT, but it has proven to be the most remarkable. I am impressed by the seamless transition between inpatient and home care, as well as by an approach to PT that kept me aware of what I was doing and how to approach it in such a way as to maximize the benefit of each step. This had a substantial material effect on how to recover much more quickly than I'd hoped. With respect OT the staff, I found it remarkable that they have managed to be personable as well as professional. This is not an easy thing to do, at least in my observation. I would especially like to extend my thanks to Mansi Parikh, who conducted my home PT. I could talk about the big things I can now do, things that had been practically impossible not only due to the injury, but to the condition that cause it. Imagine, for example, not being able to drive six minutes to get my lab tests done. Imagine not being able to climb the stairs in your own house. I can do these, even the steep basement stairs, at will. I am even walking limited distances without assistance. As impressive as that is, it's often the little things that make the biggest difference. I have been putting on my socks without a sock aid for a couple of months. I'm beginning to be able to cook meals on my own. This morning, I changed the sheets on the bed. You may not realize how much it means for routine tasks to become routine again. In a year in which things have often been profoundly abnormal, your staff made it possible for this patient to move back toward normal for the first time in a long while. Thank you for being a blessing.

Thankfully our Director recommended I consider physical therapy home services from Touchpoints at Home. I am so grateful for her recommendation and agreeing to welcome Touchpoints at Home into my life. After just a few sessions I am back to my "real self". I had prepared myself to be old and surrender my independence but now I realize that just because we are of a certain age, with the right expert care we can recover and continue to experience a good full life. Touchpoints at Home gets my highest recommendation. They gave me my life back.

This is my second Total knee replacement in 7 months. I went straight home after my first one, it was a tough, lengthy recovery. One of the best services Touchpoints offered was Kim, who is not only at Physical therapist but also the Patient Liaison. She spent hours with me to help reduce my pain and anxiety. I was improving much faster than I did after my right knee replacement. I felt ready to come home in just a couple of days. When I learned that Kim could also be my PT at home , I immediately chose Touchpoints at Home. The very next day, Kim and Piotr another PT were at my home. The appointments were always set up based on my preference and they were always on time. I have had homecare in the past, but the care and education I received from the Touchpoints team was nothing like i had ever experienced! AMAZING! Both Physical therapists and my nurse, spent the essential time to provide me with comprehensive information about my surgery, helped me better understand why I was feeling discomfort , especially about what is expected. Once I understood the anatomy of my surgery and the healing process, I was able to comfortably manage my discomfort and gradually increase my activity around my home.I was able to set realistic goals. My stress became very low and my recovery soared! The exceptional knowledge and skills of this Touchpoints rehab team is light years better that I could have ever expected. I am now ready for Outpatient Physical Therapy. I chose Touchpoints Rehab Outpatient services because I will be able to continue my care with the same therapists! How great is that. With Touchpoints at Home and Touchpoints Rehab "YOU GET COMPLETE SUCCESS". I highly recommend Touchpoints Rehab and Touchpoints at Home at every level on care.

Piotr (Touchpoints at Home physical therapist) is my go to guy……He was a Godsend….. If anyone I know has joint surgery and needs home care, I would recommend Touchpoints at Home in a heartbeat…. All Touchpoint facilities are #1 on my list….Piotr was professional and operated with an agenda, giving reasoning for all that he did and the background as to why he was recommending particular exercises…. He is intelligent, flexible and follows a given protocol….I wouldn’t go anywhere else by Touchpoints in the future!

I was very excited to hear that Touchpoints also offers homecare. When I was ready to go home, I was contacted by Touchpoints at Home right away. My Physical therapist even came to see me the next day which was a snowing Saturday. Piotr, my PT was very detailed in everything he did. He always took my vitals before beginning my treatments. He moved my recovery along nicely. He gave me good advise every step of the way. He was always analyzing how I walked and moved to make sure I was training my muscles to work the right way. He should me how by just make a small adjustment in my foot placement when walking, I could walk faster and be more solid on my feet. Soon I was using a cane and now I am walking free of cane inside my home. Piotr was always on time and 100% reliable. I had homecare before and I never knew when the PT coming, I almost declined Homecare services because of that other experience. Boy am I glad I chose Touchpoints at Home. I will recommend TAH without hesitation. I am ready to take my planned vacation now. I thought I would have to cancel it but my husband and I are really looking forward to travelling and getting our lives back on track.

My therapists Maritza and Donna really listened to me. During this time my son became engaged! My therapist Martiza was very committed to my goals, including the most important one which was to dance with my son at his wedding. Maritza is knowledgeable and has a great personality. She was always respectful and listened. I felt like I had a true partner in my rehab. Touchpoints at Home was a wonderful decision and I am forever grateful to their commitment to me. I would recommend Touchpoints at Home to everyone. And as for Martiza, she is truly special.
Touchpoints at Home has the most caring staff around. The nurses spend time with Michael and I, and they care about the patient and their caregiver. The nurses explain the health issues and the medications. We have had other experiences with homecare nurses and we have had no other nurse take enough time to lay out and manage the medications like the nurses at Touchpoints at Home. Our previous experience with homecare has been nurses coming in and out of our home. Touchpoints at Home takes their time to make sure Michael and I understood what they were teaching us. We especially feel Michelle the Administrator has moved heaven and earth for us. She make sure the visits are performed with Michael, we have a way to call nurses,and she asks about Michael’s goals. We would highly recommend Touchpoints at Home to anyone and over any other agency.

I cannot say enough about Touchpoints at Home. It was so great how they made sure I had every opportunity to regain my mobility and independence. My age was not a barrier to how they viewed my potential. Not only was the therapy amazing but the therapists made the rehab fun. I looked forward to every visit.
