We Make Aging In Place Easier
A NEW MODEL OF PHYSICAL THERAPY
Aging In Place (i.e. being able to live at home as long as possible) is everyone’s goal, but as family members age, strength and mobility can quickly decline, leading to a loss of independence, which makes it that much more difficult to care for them at home. At the same time, transportation to and from clinics and appointments becomes an increasing hassle. This is especially true of physical therapy appointments, which are often multiple times per week for many weeks.
We remove these barriers to receiving necessary physical therapy by providing Out-Patient Physical Therapists that make house calls. We make it simple for you to make sure that your family member stays active, independent, and safe as long as possible by receiving skilled physical therapy services in their home setting, covered by insurance, without the need for them to be homebound.
In fact, you can call us to evaluate your loved one without even having a referral from a physician. We will send their physician a copy of our evaluation for their certification and keep the physician updated with frequent notes about the patient’s progress.
The best time to be proactive in maintaining independence is now. You do not have to wait until a fall occurs, or your loved one ends up in the hospital.. The sooner strength and balance deficits are addressed, the longer they will be able to maintain their independence.
Bottom line: We provide the best, most convenient physical therapy services in the home setting to reduce the demands on other caregivers by maximizing the patient’s mobility and independence as long as possible.

The therapist from Mobile Rehab has been fantastic and very helpful to me. She clearly is the best PT I have ever had.Laureen F of Chapel Hill
The physical therapist came to our house and carefully reviewed our case. He designed therapies and strategies that have worked well for us. For example, my husband could not get off the floor by himself and I could not lift him when he fell. Together we learned techniques to cope with this situation in our home. Joshua designed fun and effective exercises to improve strength and flexibility. My husband can now get in and out of chairs and cars without help and walks more easily. Since we used equipment in and around the home, my husband can remember and apply what he has learned. Mobile Rehab accepted our insurance and worked out approval to provide services. We did not need a referral from our doctor.
My husband and I highly recommend Mobile Rehab if you or a loved one needs physicalJerry from Pittsboro

I wanted to tell you how much better I think Mom is since starting your PT. She has been less off balance, quicker to equilibrate to standing, and has had more stamina. I also think she is less depressed and feels more accomplished. Josh has been prompt and polite, as well as engaging in conversation to make Mom feel at ease. Thank you!Karen Pool - Google Review

Our services are covered under Medicare Part B
And many other private and supplemental insurances.
CALL FOR DETAILS
Medicare Part B physical therapy is distinctly different from Home Health Physical Therapy, which is provided under Medicare Part A and has different regulations, such as the patient must be homebound. Under Medicare Part B, our goal is to maximize the patient’s rehab potential and we are not limited by homebound regulations. We can work with patients in the home even after Home Health has discharged them.
We file all insurance paperwork on behalf of the patient.
