We’ve found that many seniors find themselves in a tough position when they need physical therapy, but Medicare or insurance no longer cover it. Due to this, patients often end up losing physical therapy just as they start to see results. At Morpheus Wellness, we attempt to address this by providing private pay fitness, health & wellness programs for seniors. While this is NOT physical therapy, and hence not covered by Medicare or Insurance, it can be a good option for those who want to continue improvement after physical therapy with our fitness and wellness programs.

Our compassionate team aims to enhance a safe and active lifestyle by providing you the resources to achieve your highest level of general health and well-being.

How Can We Help?

“Mom/dad are not going to follow the home exercise program, I just know it. I’m worried she/he will fall again/get weak/go back to the hospital.”

Morpheus Wellness discovered a need for continued supervised fitness and wellness services after home health or outpatient therapy discharge . Our customized programs may help prevent the following:

  • decline in strength and balance
  • decrease in walking frequency
  • decreased socialization
  • deconditioning i.e. “couch potato”
  • risk of injury / falls
  • hospitalization/re-hospitalization

A Return to optimal living

Morpheus Wellness co-founders, Dean Flores and Lynda Parks, have over 30 years of combined experience in the physical therapy, fitness, health and wellness fields. Their careers in the home health setting resulted in a strong knowledge of neurologic, cardiac, musculoskeletal and cognitive impairments pertaining to the geriatric population. Dean and Lynda’s unique combination of holistic and clinical approach led them to create a program that molds personal preferences and likes around the wellness/ fitness program, turning it more into an experience than a workout.

Client Testimonials

Wilma S.

“Exercise for me requires a commitment to quality of life, no matter what age! I experience many benefits to my overall physical and emotional health. Lynda’s encouragement inspires me as I continue to learn ways to optimize my physical workout. I consider it a blessing to be able to exercise for its contribution to my ability to live life at my best!”

Team Grace

“My mother struggled with her health terribly after breaking her hip. She went through very difficult times being cared for in a nursing/rehabilitation center. I felt getting her back home would offer her the best care and recovery she could achieve. Home health care and physical therapy helped her very much and then Medicare discontinued everything when she received what Medicare would cover.

We decided to continue privately with the care she needed in her home with personal training and fitness maintenance to keep her strong. Lynda Parks was handling her personal training privately for years and saw her at home up until the day before she passed. We called our family, CNA and trainer “Team Grace.” We could have never made the journey without our team. We stay in touch and will always share the memories. We all believed in Mom, loved her and gave her everything we could to keep her in her home to live out her life. Thank you!”

Carol W.

“I have been doing fitness & wellness training with Dean for the past year. He’s helped me get my leg and back muscles in shape. He’s very professional, but encouraging. I have enjoyed working with him and would recommend him to anyone.”

Angela P.

Dean has been my fitness & wellness trainer for several months. I’ve learned several maneuvers with my walker and cane. Holding open a door and  going up and down curbs. He has encouraged me and given me positive feed back. I have a balance problem which has been addressed with recommended exercises and they have helped a lot. I  heartily recommend his services.

Sabrina H.

“Dean is my mother’s fitness & wellness trainer.  He is very caring and pays attention to what you are telling him about the problems your loved one is going through.  He has helped my mother to improve her mobility, and her ability to stand and sit in a safe way.  Dean goes the extra mile to keep me informed of her progress and what are the next steps.  He is a wonderful communicator.  I highly recommend him.”

Kathy G.

“I started working with Dean a year ago. He has made fitness and wellness training a very pleasant experience every time. While Dean expects you to give the training your best effort, he never overworks you. And, he’s your biggest cheerleader through out. You are more than a client of his, you are his friend. You laugh a lot during training and learn new jokes almost every week. I’ve even met his family! Overall, if you’re lucky enough to work with Dean, you’ve gotten lucky indeed.”

Jane M.

My mother Mildred actively participated with Dean Flore’s fitness training plan from June 2019 to November 2019 after having gone through a hip replacement.  She is 89 years old.  Mildred and Dean  hit it off immediately and my mother cooperated fully with Dean’s plan of action.  My mother gained confidence in her ability to regain mobility and strength. The exercises and walking with Dean helped her immenseily. Dean worked with Mom and he helped her to go up and down curbs outside!  This enabled Mom to go out to dinner with us!  Dean also taught Mom to go down a flight of stairs backwards!  This was the safest way for Mom to exit a building, or visit family with stairs!  Moms development was amazing to watch and Dean always taught the safest tecnhniques possible!  Mom and I highly recommend Dean Flore for any witness and wellness needs.  Dean is always professional, courteous, polite and he smiles a lot, and he genuinely enjoys his interaction with his patients!  Dean has helped my Mom re-develop her independence which for pushing 90yrs. of age is a Blessing!
