My husband had a medical emergency that put him on a ventilator for a week; he also had many other issues that made him weak and unable to do much of anything. He also had major issues with his throat due to being on the vent. The ladies who did our home health for his recovery have been EXCELLENT. Dani (speech therapist), Jen (OT), and Cortney (PT) have been a joy to have in our home for their therapies. It’s so nice not to have to go somewhere when my husband has multiple doctor’s appointments a week. They are doing a great job with his recovery. Thank you Therapists in Motion!

I can’t say enough wonderful things! My husband was in a horrific motorcycle accident on May 28, 2022. We were told he may not survive and if by some miracle he did, walking may never be a reality for him again. After 6 weeks in rehab he came home, in a neck brace, body brace, cast on his leg and…..in a wheelchair. We truly thought this was our new normal. Then Therapists in Motion showed up. Today is September 15, 2022. Today he is out of the neck brace, body brace, and in a walking boot. He can shower himself, he is driving in small trips, and most importantly, he is walking and no longer needs the wheelchair! The two angels, Jennifer and Susan, were absolutely wonderful.
