Modern OT Services Continue with Ontario Stay At Home Emergency Response

Thursday, January 14, 2021

The provincial government has stated that health care services are permitted to remain open during the pending province-wide shutdown, scheduled to begin December 26, 2020.  Occupational therapists and other regulated health professionals may continue to operate, consistent with current guidelines for regulated health professionals.

Modern OT will continue to provide in-person and telehealth services, while upholding all mandated COVID-19 safety measures, processes and protocols as instructed by the Province and our local public health units.

The team at Modern OT recognizes the challenges that times of uncertainty can place on individuals who are dealing with physical, cognitive and mental health challenges.   We want to assure you that we are here to support you, we have strategies to help you stay on track with your treatment plan, and we will continue to ensure all the prescribed safety measures are in place to keep you, your families, our employees, and our community safe.

These are challenging and uncertain times, but we believe that as a company and community, we can get through this together.

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.

Helping you to overcome challenges in your daily life – at home, at work, at school, and in your community.
