Family Day - Modern OT

Happy Family Day!

Thursday, February 16, 2023

This Monday (February 20th) 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:

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.
