Dave Kahle
I am a physical therapist and I live on Orcas Island. I have provided home health physical therapy for clients here in the San Juan Islands for over 15 years. As a home health physical therapist for over 30 years, I am trained as a healthcare case manager for in home clients as well. This includes caregiver coordination and training, monitoring and making referrals for health conditions, home safety education and modification, and much more. Inclusive of my medical and physical therapy training I have years of ongoing training and experience related specifically to home care.

Work Experience
In addition to my work experience as a home health physical therapist, I have been a caregiver for over 5 years. I began working as a caregiver manager and part-time caregiver for a client, and I have had several clients since. I also have experience working with Hospice as a physical therapist for many years and as a caregiver. I am presently managing care for my mother who has Parkinson's. I am available for evening-overnight shifts, and 24 hour shifts.

Personal Statement

I enjoy working with senior clients to assist in any way I can to support them and maximize quality of life at home. My home health physical therapy practice has had this focus and has now been extended to caregiving. I have always respected and give precedence to a person's autonomy and wishes in providing care. I make myself available to support, educate, and enhance whatever goals a client has, to meet any needs, while moving at their pace and within their preferences. I offer my care with flexibility, kindness, gentleness and humor, meeting my client on his or her terms. I look forward to hearing from you so we can discuss your care needs and explore possibilities.
