Great info for therapists considering home health.

I am a new grad PTA and found this book very helpful. It provides a great deal of detail on what it is like to work as a therapist in home health and outlines the differences between this and other PT settings. I only wish there had been a chapter that specifically talked about being a home health PTA (rather than just speaking to being a PT).
