Family Day - Modern OT

Happy Family Day!

Monday, February 5, 2024

This Monday (February 19th) is Family Day! Many Canadians will have the opportunity to step away from work and spend some much-needed quality time with their loved ones. Please note that our offices will be closed so our team can do exactly that.

Meaningfully engaging with family, be it your parents, siblings, children, or chosen family, is incredibly important to leading a happy life. According to the Highland Spring Clinic, family time reduces stress, improves mental health, and lengthens life expectancy.

This weekend might also provide an opportunity to visit seniors or family members whose health may impact their mobility.  If you notice any fall risks or if your visit brings questions to mind about a loved one's safety in or around their home, an occupational therapy assessment might be helpful.

As such, we encourage everyone to seize the day and have spend time with your favourite people. Here are some local suggestions to guide your holiday:

Hiking Trails
- Gatineau Park (Gatineau)
- Mer Bleue Bog (Ottawa)
- Pinhey Trail (Ottawa)
- Lemoine Point (Kingston)
- Lyn Valley (Kingston)
- Pembroke Waterfront Park (Pembroke)
