We are proud to announce Sunland has added some wonderful new services to ensure our seniors maintain the very best quality of life. We go beyond your basic homecare. We have developed new services to expand our reach and ability to meet your needs. Sunland is now offering physical therapy and wellness coaching.

We’re excited to welcome the wonderful Dr. Brian Barney, PT, DPT for our new physical therapy and wellness coaching programs. Let’s talk about how each service benefits various needs that inevitably arise in our senior years.

Physical Therapy – What’s physical therapy, exactly?

Physical therapy is the healthcare specialty that includes the evaluation, assessment, and treatment of individuals with limitations in functional mobility.

How physical therapy benefits seniors:

Studies show that physical therapy will help you recover from surgeries, illnesses, and injuries faster, and in a safe, professionally guided environment. Even better, physical therapy can improve your physical health, which also decreases future medical issues and costs. Win-win! Here are the services that Dr. Barney provides:

Sunland’s Physical Therapy Services:

Wellness Coaching – The endless benefits

Surely you hear the term “wellness” often enough. But have you thought about your own personal mental and physical wellness? Do you have a plan to increase your wellness, ultimately adding quality years to your life?

This is where Sunland’s wellness coaching comes in. We can help you create a wellness plan.

Sometimes it’s good to check with a licensed physician to ensure you are dotting the i’s and crossing the t’s so you can maintain or improve your health and be at your best! Dr. Barney will work with you to create a step by step wellness plan so you can rest easy, knowing you’re being proactive about your health.

Remember, your overall wellness relies on the balance of physical activity, nutrition, and mental well-being. If you want to ensure more good health and independence, a high level of wellness will empower you to take personal responsibility for your own good health. Another win!
