Client Walks Outside to Check Mail for the First Time in Over Two Years
Adaptive Home Therapy, Inc.
Mr. H., a retired postal worker from Manchester, N.J., was a client with AHT for less than one month. He was trained to use his walker and walk out of his home to his mailbox and to safely retrieve his own mail for the first time in over two years. Mr. H. has gained confidence and independence from achieving this goal. With the help of skilled Occupational Therapy, Mr. H. is now better able to manage knee pain and loss of joint mobility; now walking over 500 feet to the mailbox. Prior to AHT treatment, Mr. H. had to be pushed in a wheelchair to get to the bathroom but now he walks to the bathroom on his own without assistance from his aide.
