Located in Appleton, WI, PRN Home Health & Therapy, has been setting goals to help your loved one resume the activities they enjoy most while also improving their overall health and confidence through at home therapy care since 2015. We have a dedicated team of therapists located throughout Wisconsin that specialize in physical therapy, occupational therapy, and speech therapy services.

Our trained therapists come right to the patient’s home, whether that be in an assisted living facility or a residence. This makes it easy to give the patient the quality of care they need without your loved one ever having to leave the comfort of their home.

Frequently Asked Questions

What kind of therapy does PRN provide?
PRN provides physical therapy, occupational therapy and speech language therapy.
What is the difference between physical therapy and occupational therapy?

Physical therapists work with the whole body, focusing on improving gait, balance, and overall strength. Occupational therapy focuses more on fine-motor skills and cognitive strategies. Typically occupational therapy works on upper extremity exercises. Physical therapists and occupational therapists often collaborate to provide care.

What do speech language therapists do?

Speech language pathologists, or therapists, diagnose and treat voice disorders, feeding & swallowing disorders, speech sound disorders, stuttering, language disorders and cognitive disorders.

How does therapy differ for older adults?

Therapy in older adults may last a little longer due to the fact that the healing and recovery timeline takes longer. The goal of our therapists is to push and challenge our patients, but never be aggressive in our treatment. We will always move at the speed of the patient and what works best for them.
