Independence Matters, Inc., therapists develop a personalized plan of care to help their patients reach their maximum level of functioning as quickly and safely as possible. They do this while working hand-in-hand with the patient, caregiver, family member, attending physician, and home health agencies.

All of our therapists are background checked, drug tested and CPR certified. We are multi-lingual, with therapists who speak English, Spanish, Polish, and Filipino. We provide web-based documentation with external access. This provides home health agencies with point-of-service information. We believe in keeping patients with the same therapist throughout their treatment. See our Services.
