PENNSAUKEN, N.J., Oct. 14, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Higher Mobility LLC, a residential lift products and services provider to residents in greater Philadelphia and the mid-Atlantic region, today announced a series of home mobility updates for physical therapy clinics, home healthcare organizations and skilled nursing facilities.
- State and local support
- Insurance, Medicare and Medicaid
- Stair lifts, wheelchair lifts, home elevators, ceiling lifts
- Service - what to expect and look for in a provider
- Aging In Place - what's involved in helping someone prepare their home
"Our goal with these briefing sessions is to help healthcare workers enhance their knowledge and care of patients," said Higher Mobility President and CEO Michael Walsh. "We want to make it easier for them to enhance their services to ease a patient's successful transition home."
A growing number of seniors prefer to age in their home, driving the need for healthcare workers, architects and construction professionals to retool their skills and knowledge to help the elderly remain in their homes as long as possible, living safely, and with a high degree of comfort.
For Graham Robbins, Director of Rehab, Beebe Medical Center, Lewes, DE, the session was "very informative and addressed an area that will help us better assist our patients." Robbins continued, "The staff found the session helpful, educational and very useful to their work and in some cases, in their own personal situations."
"I was very impressed with the depth and breadth of knowledge and topics presented," said Ellen Levine, Owner and Executive Director of The Back Clinic, Wilmington, DE. "We learned about many of the issues related to product selection, reimbursement by Medicare Medicaid, as well as state-level differences in financial support. This will help us build a better bridge for our patients -- between our clinic and their home."
So far, the fall briefing schedule includes:
Barker Therapy Clinic, Dover, DE
The Back Clinic in Wilmington, DE
BeeBe Medical Center in Lewes, DE
Ivy Hill Rehab & Nursing Center in Philadelphia, PA
Palisades Rehab Clinic, Cresskill, NJ
Center For Aging, Stratford, NJ
