We need to use this time to actively attend to their needs in any way that best fits the patient.” Andre entered PT because his grandmother had a brain tumor and, during her rehabilitation, she received home health services from a PT. He was able to see the progress she was able to make from the time she came home to her discharge and he knew then that PT was what he wanted to do.
