Convenient, Confidential and Safe

Medicare Part B Services

A healthy mind coupled with an in-home rehabilitation program leads to a more successful transition home! The planning and anticipation of going home from an inpatient stay will bring feelings of joy, excitement and accomplishment while being met with thoughts of uncertainty, anxiety and loneliness. Most of the time these thoughts and feelings go unnoticed and lead to confusion, misunderstandings and a lack of participation in care, all of which will prolong recovery and increase the risk of returning to the hospital or a skilled nursing facility. Direct Access is a Medicare Part B mental health provider that works in conjunction with medical doctors, home health agencies, skilled nursing facilities, outpatient rehabs, and hospitals to ensure a successful transition home from an inpatient stay. We provide a Licensed Clinical Social Worker, LCSW, to meet with individuals, couples and family members experiencing guilt, depression, loneliness and anxiety as a result of going home. These discrete and confidential meetings are arranged in the convenience and comfort of the home environment, maximizing participation. An unsuccessful transition home simply increases the risk of returning to a hospital or skilled nursing facility. Take an extra step today to reduce this risk tomorrow.    

Play Therapy

Play Therapy is a natural and spontaneous part of people’s lives. Play is fun, creative and critical to healthy development. Children learn about their physical surroundings, capabilities, limitations, social rules and the difference between fantasy and reality. They interact with toys and other people as they enter new experiences and rehearse new skills. In play they can express other things that are too complicated to say. Play promotes healthy development and is one way for children to communicate in areas too complicated to say. It is fun and helps to engage the child in the therapy session. Play Therapy refers to a large number of treatment methods, all of which make use of one or more of the natural benefits of play. Play Therapy differs from regular play in that the therapist helps children systematically address and resolve their own problems. Since play is fun, it makes it easier for children to confront what is bothering them. It allows children to have a safe psychological distance from their problems while allowing them to express their true thoughts and feelings in ways best suited to their developmental level. Once children have expressed and addressed their problems through play, the therapist will be better able to help them find solutions to their problems in life. Children benefit from Play Therapy in many ways. Research supports the effectiveness of Play Therapy with children experiencing a wide variety of social, emotional, behavioral, and learning problems, including: post-traumatic stress, conduct disorder, aggression, anxiety/fearfulness, depression, ADHD, impulsivity, low self-esteem, reading difficulties, and social withdrawal. It has been used successfully with children whose problems are related to life stressors, such as divorce, death, relocation, hospitalization, chronic illness, physical/sexual abuse, domestic violence and natural disasters.
