This staggering statistic is one of the main reasons we set up Cup-O-T: Wellness and Therapy Services. It's a huge number and more needs to be done. We will make mental health support accessible in Norfolk and Suffolk at an early stage.
We will take the service to the people who need it with our mobile therapy room. Please spread the message and help us fund this much needed service.
Link to the fundraiser is in our bio.
That’s a wrap! After 60+ sessions, #Paediatrics2018 has now drawn to a close. Thank you to our sponsors and exhibitors for their support, our presenters who offered their time and learnings, and our delegates whose enthusiasm for OT continues to inspire us all.
最近在整理手上家教的學生 重新去檢視給他們的goal是否真的符合需求 調整上課的時間和方向
試著調整出一個工作 家教 生活之間的平衡 雖然90%的時間我都快樂似神仙 但有時候還是感到挺茫然的
Need to find a good place to settle down, with a good guy, a good career, a group of good friends and a good life. To have my own family.
24歲不去想著到處玩 反而就想這些會不會太早了 難怪很多人都以為我30歲了QQ
Home modifications //
Home mods are just one way that occupational therapists can help clients to become more independent and do the things they want and need to do. Sometimes, a home modification can be the difference between staying in your own home, or having to move to another place (or even a care facility/nursing home).
Home mods can include:
- non-slip flooring
- brighter/dimmed lighting (for people with vision difficulties and those who experience sensory overload)
- acoustic tiles to reduce noise (great for SENSORY processing difficulties particularly autism and dementia)
- threshold ramps (for wheelchair/scooter users and those that have walking frames)
- bathroom re-design (wheelchair users, children with disabilities, people with dementia)
- removal/widening of doors (for wheelchair/Walker users)
- lowering kitchen benches for wheelchair users
- installation of hand held shower hoses
- replacing taps that are hard to grasp (to assist people with arthritis and poor grip strength)
- installation of sensor lights to reduce falls risk
- installation of a raised garden bed (again to reduce Falls risk, also good way to conserve energy for people with chronic pain and chronic fatigue)
- knocking out a wall to increase space for wheelchair/scooter users
- installation of device controlled lighting/heating/cooling
- painting walls certain colours to assist with certain behaviour (autism/dementia/intellectual disability)
The list is endless!
Welcome to Day 2 of #Paediatrics2018 ! We’ve got a big day ahead with 33 presentations across a diverse range of practice domains. If you’ve got any questions about the day’s proceedings, feel free to swing by the OTA booth or talk to one of our friendly volunteers in purple.
Are you confused 🤷♀️ what books to bring home for your kiddo? Is it that you have to plan a lot to go to a book store? .
If you are into “no-videos for kids” parenting way and totally into “books for my baby” kinda thing — and so If you want amazing kids books as per their specific age-group & that too selected by great parents & teachers on the TEAm, I would suggest SUBSCRIBE NOW for @lillypostbox !! My little one loves this. She always loves to open this box and during the whole month keeps reading these books.
Yes you can keep these books and make a beautiful library collection for your little one. .
I have tried many boxes but I found
#lillypostbox as the best one. So suggesting for everyone on my page being an #OTMom . . If you are interested DM me so I will recommend you so you and I both can get some discount (USA only). 😊😆
Anybody else struggle to keep a positive mindset?🙋🏼♀️In the daily grind of to-do lists, work tasks, family responsibilities (the list could go on and on...), it’s really easy for me to get down on myself, especially when I feel like I’m not DOING or BEING “enough” in some way.
Have you ever heard of the term “self-talk”? Basically, self-talk is the internal monologue, or inner voice that we each have inside us, influencing how we perceive and respond to the world around us.
What does your self-talk sound like? Is it kind, gentle, warm, and loving? Or is it self-defeating, rude, and harsh? Does it lead you to take action because you believe in yourself, or does it hold you back by keeping you trapped in self-doubt?
Changing your mindset takes practice, but it is KEY🔑to maintaining your mental health and preventing burnout (especially in a career like OT). So take a personal inventory of your self-talk today and start to make small positive changes. For every negative thought you notice, try telling yourself three positive affirmations instead. Once you change your mindset, everything else will start to fall into place.✨
Was overdue for some D vitamin! For those who don’t know, I’m not competing this time around. A lot had happen this last few months professionally and personally and I wasn’t able to structure myself enough to keep balance of rest, work, training and family. My fitness journey is still a learning process through which I intend to guide people as I guide myself. As balancing a healthy lifestyle is my motto, I devote myself to personify it. If I don’t do it, I lie to myself and everyone who’s watching me. This is my #TRUTH . I’ll be back in June. Meanwhile, let’s support team fitness Canada. A big shoutout to my husband and coach @dickenslambert , my bikini designer @bella_bikinisuits and all my clients that follow me. I’ll be back! #fitnesscanadateam#bikiniclassic#bikinicompetitor#momofthree#proudwife#businessowner#occupationaltherapist#bio3clinique
Energize down, some emails sent, and ready to press play! 💪🏻
Shift Shop:Proving Grounds Week 3 Day 5 already! 😳
Investing in my health makes me feel:
—Energized (even after the liquid gold wears off)
Fit is a feeling more than just looks. And it is the best feeling in the world🙌🏻 But don’t take my word for it, try it for yourself!!
Over three years ago, I felt powerLESS. Stuck in my own skin, uncomfortable, wasn’t doing anything for myself because I felt guilty doing it. I was coming up with excuse after excuse for years. Then one day I decided I needed to take charge to get back up, to get back to me - I needed that power back. So I took a leap for myself - and haven’t looked back since. Working out at home, following a simple meal plan (no crazy diet, no eliminating food groups #carbsarenottheenemy no calorie counting - just eating simple real food) and joining a group of supportive women just like me is the best thing I have ever done for myself. 💯
So instead of waiting until after the holidays, and waiting until the new year, start NOW. No, I’m not crazy, yes I know the holidays are coming, BUT there’s ALWAYS going to be some sort of obstacle standing in your way. Obstacles are put in your path for a reason. Your job is to work through them - not let them stand in your way.
My next group starts December 3rd - and there’s actually a pretty amazing special going on to help you knock out the excuses in November - but it’s only good for the rest of the month. So tell the negative Nancy in your head - you know, the one that’s telling you that it’s the holidays and you’re gonna just let it all go - to shut up - because the days are passing, and this is your life! Message me or comment below when you’re ready! I’m always here! ✌🏼❤️

Clear skin, full of energy and life, hair and nails are strong and healthy, 50 pounds lighter, less joint pain, increased muscle mass, improved balance, and overall living the life I always dreamed of! Quit putting off your goals and the life you envision for yourself and your family! I’m looking for 5 ladies who are passionate about life, ready to take action, and help others along the way! My December Coach Mentorship is now open! What do you have to lose??❤️❤️correction! 2011 to present!
A lot of our treatment sessions are billed under therapeutic exercise and therapeutic activities. In order to demonstrate skilled care, you must be able to justify that these activities/exercises could not be performed by a caregiver. We have mentioned this before, but regardless of whether or not your client has a caregiver, you must always document skilled care.
When making comments in a treatment note regarding TE/TA - try to focus the comment on: *What you as the clinician did to make the activity skilled -Facilitation techniques
-Degree of perturbations
-A specific cue you provided *The client's response to the activity
-Reps prior to fatigue
-Vital signs *How you progressed the activity -Increased step height -Decreased UE support
-Increased reaching distance
-Standing vs sitting
There is no need to fear audits or discharge a client early as long as you are always showing skilled care. Some clients need more time based on their diagnosis and co-morbidities. And guess what? You CAN increase the duration of treatment as long as you are changing the way you treat your client and showing that change in your documentation. ⭐️Comment below if these tips are helping you!
