“In May of 2021, my life came to a screeching halt, as I had to undergo emergency brain surgery. A craniotomy was performed to remove a benign brain tumor.
I now can relate to what so many individuals and their families experience when an unexpected, emotional, and deeply impactful situation occurs. The fear and doubt that you feel during recovery can be very daunting.
The medical community acts quickly to help save a life, but what about preparing you to recover? Return to life? It’s forever changed from that point forward.
I would personally say that is when the hard work, sweat, and tears begin. This is what makes Northbound Health so uniquely special. The therapists have seen this firsthand and want to make this transition tailored to what each person/family needs. Each person differs from the next. Shouldn’t our therapy be different also?”
Make A Difference!
HELP US MAKE A DIFFERNCE!
Northbound Health is a 501(c)3 created to address the health disparities and barriers for the growing number of friends, family and local community members impacted by life-altering conditions and injuries.
Northbound Health was founded by Nora Foster and her team of therapists, Megan Dearing and Julie Griffith in 2021. As clinicians, they have witnessed the “life-changing” effects in all areas of a person’s life when they have a new or chronic disability. Many patients are left to deal with serious mobility, speech, cognitive, and occupational challenges.
Many of these patients get lost in our healthcare system. The statistics are staggering to learn how many of them are left to suffer a sedentary lifestyle, poor eating habits, divorce, drug addiction, alcohol dependence including suicide. Covid-19 has only magnified these problems.
Our first step is to meet our patients at whatever stage of their recovery they are at and develop a one-of-a-kind treatment plan personalized just for them. We collaborate with their healthcare team, family and caregivers to ensure we understand each patient’s health history and recovery challenges.
What Makes Northbound Health Different?
Our model allows us to serve patients in their homes and reintegrate them back into the community and life with an interdisciplinary team approach. Our services help to prevent rehospitalizations, improve health and safety outcomes, and promote patient and family autonomy.
Therapy is one part of the solution to improve our patients quality of life and independence. Working together with other community partners, we plan to expand our services and increase our outreach.
We Need Your Help!
Mobile therapy is ideal for many patients, as it can be a significant burden on the patient and family to physically attend therapy in a clinic multiple times per week. We depend on the donations and support of our local partners and community in order to grow our mobile services in Central Indiana. The need is great, as 1 in 4 Hoosiers have a disability. Your $50 donation would provide one visit of life-changing therapy. Please visit our website to see our year end goal of providing 1,000 mobile therapy visits.
Your financial gift is tax-deductible and you may also give your time and energy as a volunteer partner in our efforts to reimagine healthcare! Thank you!

“Northbound Health is open to hearing their clients true needs. They don’t just walk in to your home, give you a piece of paper with exercises on it, take a few measurements, spend a quick 26 minutes with you and leave you to move on to the next number on their schedule.
Northbound Health Therapists walk into your whole life and support you, your goals and your efforts 100%. They work with you by first listening to you and then together they help you to realize the goals you are striving to achieve.
When they aren’t working with you personally, they’re actually sitting down with each other, making plans and coming up with innovative strategies to make sure that the patient receives the very best care possible. The time, energy, and focus that is spent on making sure the whole person is addressed is absolutely unheard of in the rehabilitation industry. I have worked with a few other companies and Northbound has set the standard that is going to be nearly impossible to surpass.”
“The best part about Northbound is that the staff is able to come to my home to administer my therapy. Getting ready and getting to the gym would expend half of my energy. The therapists are so good at what they do that Northbound has been an absolute game changer for me.”
“I feel better now than I did before my accident spiritually, mentally and physically. Your dream and your foresight has given me and others a plan to get through our physical deficiencies. Thank you for all of your hard work. Thank you for allowing me to be a small part of the journey, even though it has just begun, it’s going to be a wild ride but a rewarding one!”
“Thank you, Northbound Health, for your thoughtful consideration and amazing attention to detail in addressing what’s missing in the healthcare industry. God bless you all.”
