Home Health Care Initiative

The Home Care Health Initiative on Fishers Island is designed to facilitate the delivery of auxiliary health care services to the Island which in the past have been difficult to obtain. These services include on-island Physical Therapy, Home Care for the elderly or infirm, and end-of-life Hospice Care.

Physical Therapy

NEMG offers physical therapy at the Fishers Island Community Center. Physical therapist, John Bradford, will be available by appointment each Tuesday and Thursday starting Tuesday June 20th and running through Thursday August 31st. Hour and half hour sessions will be available.

Please call the IHP Doctor’s Office at 631-788 -7244 for an appointment. Should you or someone need physical therapy for any reason, a referral by Dr. Ingram or another physician may be required.

Orthopedic physical therapy emphasizes the prevention, identification, assessment, minimization, and correction of pain and disability due to acute or prolonged musculoskeletal impairment. This includes post-surgical as well as non-surgical conditions. The goal of treatment is to promote optimal tissue regeneration and function. A physical therapist may use a variety of interventions to diminish pain and correct movement impairments associated with orthopedic disorders.

Sports physical therapy emphasizes the prevention, identification, assessment, minimization, and correction of pain and disability associated with injuries sustained in athletic activities and problems that affect sport performance. The goal of treatment is to maximize participation and performance.

Home Care

Many of us have attempted to navigate the maze of home care for the aged or infirm in our families and suffered for the effort. We have often had to choose to shorten/eliminate holidays or complicate them with inadequate provisions. The FI Home Care Health Initiative is attempting to assist families with this by partnering with Shelter Island Home Care,, an agency we have vetted, to provide 24/7 certified nursing assistants (CNA) for those in need. Although this agency can only provide live-in care, we have also identified a limited number of local Fishers Island caregivers who can provide short-term (hourly) care including driving to appointments, bathing, feeding, shopping, companionship, etc. These services would be paid for out-of-pocket with insurance coverage unlikely unless a long-term home care insurance plan is active.

Please contact Kapri Thomas at for further details and to coordinate care.

Home Hospice

The FI Home Care Health Initiative has partnered with East End Hospice,, for end-of-life care for those wishing to spend their final days with family on their beloved island in the comfort of their homes.

Our team, working hand in hand with East End Hospice, can also work in conjunction with the home care agency such that families can spend quality time with their loved ones without the stress of difficult to manage issues. Medicare, to date, covers hospice related expenses but not home care.

Please contact Kapri Thomas at for further details and to coordinate care.
