The At Home Partners, LLC Story

Personalized Care

Hello! My name is Debbie Gentry. I’m a Physical Therapist with 30-plus years of experience. While I’ve practiced in many settings, including hospital acute care, in-patient rehabilitation, outpatient clinics, and assisted living and skilled nursing facilities, my passion and greatest experience has been in home health care. I have 25 years of experience seeing folks in their homes and working with them to achieve their goals in the environments in which they live. Though I have most often worked with patients after an injury, illness, or surgery, I am also an educator and active promoter of Fall Prevention - teaching classes for OASIS and in the community.

My love for physical therapy began in high school, when I was a candy striper in the hospital, working in various departments – I got to see firsthand the beautiful work medical professionals were doing. Once I spent time in PT, I knew I had found my place. In my first job as a Physical Therapist in Houston, new grads were required to rotate through the different departments to gain experience until you found your niche. I found that I loved rehabilitation. It was a coordination of all services, rather than just physical therapy. We saw a little bit of everything in terms of diagnoses, and because people would spend months in rehab at that time, I could really build relationships with them. When the hospital was one of the first to add home health, I was willing to try it. I had such a great experience helping a young woman who had suffered from a stroke go through the ICU, in-patient rehabilitation, and, finally, in home health care. I loved following her through her entire journey of recovery. After following a mentor to another hospital, followed by practicing for a while in an outpatient clinic (doing home health as a side job), I spent time in skilled nursing facilities, and assisted living centers, as well as in acute care. Through all of these experiences, I always felt called back to home care.

 

At Home Partners LLC provides direct mobile Wellness Services and Physical Therapy. I provide senior fitness, preventative care, and individual and/or family consultation services in the comfort of your own home through in-person or online options. I am passionate about seeing folks one-on-one and problem solving with them in their own environment(s). That being said, in addition to other services, I provide recommendations on adaptations for the home that will allow you to successfully and gracefully age while making your home safer for you in the process. I established my practice to provide a comprehensive and personalized approach to difficulties associated with aging, injury, or medical condition. In traditional therapy settings, personal health and fitness goals are often not met due to time, location, or insurance restrictions. At Home Partners, LLC fills the gap by providing professional expertise and guidance to allow clients to restore life and achieve mobility in their everyday activities.
