I work at group homes…ICF/DD facilities and provide Occupational Therapy services to the residents. As an Occupational Therapist, my role is to assist in maximizing function skills. Many of the residents has significant cognitive and physical limitations. They require maximal assistance for the completion of daily living skills and participation in leisure skills as well. But….that doesn’t mean that they can’t..or…won’t! We just have to be creative. I feel that is an important area of Occupational Therapy. Modifying, augmenting, and allowing them to participate. Well…..I feel that when we do these fun activities the resident has a great time and the staff as well. I just love when others get involved….and continue the creativity. Much more than I could have imagined. Thanks to all of those that show interest and become a part of our fun journey. Let’s continue to have fun, create and show others what “EVERYONE” is capable of!
