Modern OT for Seniors

Tuesday, December 1, 2020

More and more we are seeing the importance of ensuring the health, wellness, and safety of seniors in our communities.  Seeing loved ones adapt to changes in this stage of life can be difficult.

OT is about looking at what a person needs to do and likes to do, and addressing barriers to achieving those goals.   This might be cooking, exercising, driving, volunteering in the community, sending emails, or accessing a family video call.  We understand that each person's priorities are different.

In our present COVID-19 environment, some families are unable to get together and might be wondering how the seniors in our lives are managing. Modern OT has expanded our case management services to develop the Community Care Coordinator role.  The Community Care Coordinator helps to ease uncertainties by providing a primary point of contact for seniors and their family members to manage treatment services, programs and care options.   In consultation with the senior and their family, this can include initial guidance in developing an overall plan of care within the community, to direct support and advocacy for the patient in the event of an emergency or crisis.

Thank you for joining Modern OT in an online world of creative therapy.  We would also like to thank Lisa Abbott Moore, Speech Therapist for her generosity of time and talents in the free creative zoom sessions these last many weeks of social distancing.

With the arrival spring, colours are blooming outdoors, Lisa will no longer be leading the Friday afternoon online classes. Lisa encourages all participants to take your imagination to nature's offerings, drawing and painting what you see around you.  Keep talking about it too, as art enhances communication.

Should you have any individual needs, questions, or concerns and would like to speak with Modern OT's speech language pathologist, Lisa Abbott Moore, please feel free to contact our office.
