Rehabilitative Therapy Services

At TCM Home Health, we strive to provide the most comprehensive approach to home health rehabilitation  in Western Pennsylvania. Our therapists are licensed by their respective Pennsylvania State Boards. They are all experienced in their respective fields prior to working in our organization, and they are recognized as professionals specializing in the area of home health care. At TCM, our primary focus is on the patient's safe transition back to their home environment. Our functional training approach is centered around prevention of injury and maximizing recovery of functional potential in the home, with ultimate recovery of the patient's ability to safely access outdoors and the community.  We realize  the responsibility for care rests with a patient's family, which is why we provide extensive family education throughout our involvement.
