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.

What does an OT do?

Saturday, January 1, 2022

Often times occupational therapists work in the background of people's everyday life. OTs quietly create ways for individuals to continue to go about their days with as much independence as possible by reducing physical, cognitive, and emotional barriers .

What does that look like? Well, the short answer is "it depends". We ask a lot of questions, and our therapy is indidividualized depending on your answers.
- It depends on who you are and what your day-to-day routine entails. Are you a parent? A student? Do you work? Do you volunteer? Do you garden? Do you cook? Do you socialize?
- It also depends on what types of impairments you have and how they impact your function - does it affect how you move? how you think? how you sleep? how you communicate? how you make decisions?
- It also depends on what your environment is - where do you live? where do you work? where do you shop?
how are these places made accessible to you?

The best way to find out if an how an OT could help you is to ASK. We can be reached anytime, and are happy to chat. Meanwhile, since it's OT month, we will also do our best to be a bit less quiet and start telling more about what we do!
