PTA, 20 years with PTS, Central IL Home Health "It was a blessed moment when I was asked to join the HH team at PTS. Apprehensive about doing Physical Therapy with people in their homes at first has turned out to be a great career as a PTA in helping people in their homes, their primary environment. Sometimes working in the the "smallest of spaces" has allowed me many of rewards professionally and personally to have this privilege. Helping with directions that will help their safety, assisting them to working toward their previous level or to their highest level in their environment. Preparing them to progress to returning to community living and progressing to Outpatient PT. I see this area of Home Health as being an important supportive service for those being released from the hospital or nursing home or just have had a recent decline in their function for their health needs at home. I love Home Health!"
