Therapy and Rehabilitation

The road to recovery often includes regaining skills and function lost due to accidents, stroke or other illnesses. Therapy is available through Baptist Health Lexington Home Health Care to help you regain those lost skills and sometimes something even more important . . . your independence.

  • Gait training
  • Home adaptation
