Rehabilitation Therapies

There is a way...

For you and your family to receive professional rehabilitation and counseling services in the privacy in your own home. Illness and injury can lead to loss of limb functions, impaired speech and difficulty in managing daily activity. Coping with health problems can be stressful emotionally and financially.

The Berlin Visiting Nurse Association provides comprehensive rehabilitation services to help clients regain their maximum level of function after an illness or injury.
