International Day of Persons with Disabilities

Friday, December 2, 2022

Tomorrow marks the annual International Day of Persons with Disabilities.

Launched by the United Nations in 1992, the occasion celebrates the contributions of people with disabilities, promotes their rights and well-being, and increases awareness, understanding, and acceptance.

Modern OT recognizes the importance of this day’s message of inclusion, equality, and accessibility for all individuals, and works with clients to help them overcome perceived barriers or biases to remain active in their community.

Today, and every day, we should remember the importance of imagining a better future for everyone. The disability rights movement recognizes that people with disabilities are instrumental members of our community who must be represented in the way society is organized.

We invite our readers to check out the resources in this article to access disability-related support and learn more about creating a just world for all.

Modern OT Announces Partnership with LifeMark Health Group & Shoppers Drug Mart

Wednesday, June 29, 2022

Modern OT is pleased to announce an exciting new partnership with LifeMark Health Group and Shoppers Drug Mart Inc.

LifeMark is a national leader in health care, offering community rehabilitation, workplace wellness, and medical assessment services to 3 million patients annually. Additionally, having recently become a division of Shoppers Drug Mart, they are part of a growing health network reaching small and large communities across Canada.

Through this partnership, Modern OT will expand our resources and boost accessibility to our existing services while developing new forms of treatment and care. By joining a larger healthcare network, we will be able to participate in national and provincial programs offering occupational therapy, case management, and vocational rehabilitation services. We will also have the opportunity to diversify our programs, share resources with our partners, and better advocate for the needs of our clients.

That said, while much is changing at Modern OT, much is staying the same.  Shannon McGrath and Fiona Smith Bradley stay in their leadership roles with the Modern OT team.   We will still retain the same name, locations, services, and staff, who have worked hard to earn a trusted reputation of client-centred care. As we embark on this exciting new chapter, we invite everyone to stay in touch with us and reach out with any questions or concerns.

We look forward to continuing to work with you.

Thank you.

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