Fitness & Wellness VS. Physical Therapy
Do you want to return to your active lifestyle and maintain your level of earned fitness/wellness/ mobility after your therapy services?
Would you like to supplement your lifestyle changes with dynamic and safe exercise programs?
Need encouragement and motivation with a focus on healthy sleeping habits and exercises tailored specifically to you?
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
“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!”
“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.”
“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.“
“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.”
“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.”
