Simone Etter, PT, DPT, Physical Therapy
Treating patients in their homes is really a very special type of treatment, because people respond better when they’re in their homes. They’re in an environment that they’re used to. They’re able to get up and go to the bathroom when they’re ready to, instead of having to wait on staff at a hospital. It just is a much more comfortable environment for people to be able to recover.
Baptist Health Floyd Home Care provides multiple specialty treatments, including physical therapy, occupational therapy, speech therapy, nursing services, medical social workers, and home health aides. All of our staff are very passionate about what they do and have the best interest of their patients at heart.
Baptist Health Floyd Home Care has been recognized on the Home Care Elite Top 500 agencies list for several years.

Not everyone is able to travel after an injury. We’re able to come to you to receive healthcare in your home, even in rural areas. If you feel like home care would be something good for you, ask your doctor for a recommendation for Baptist Health Floyd Home Care.
