September 20-26 was National Rehabilitation Awareness Week! During the third full week in September, we take time to applaud the efforts of our rehab professionals and focus attention on the powers and possibilities of rehabilitation.
Over the course of the week, we helped residents decompress while connecting mind and body; transforming the solarium into a spa and having our beloved occupational therapist, Trevonna Busano, lead relaxation activities. We also took time to challenge problem solving abilities with timed testing activities led by "speechie" therapist, Darlene Brown. To cap things off, we created an obstacle course to challenge functional mobility, with the fastest time winning a gift card! Thanks to our physical therapist, Tanvi Raykar, for leading.
We hope our efforts bring attention to the positive impacts of rehabilitation; something over 50 million Americans with disabilities can benefit from. From our corner of the country, we're proud to be helping those in need. Thank you to our wonderful therapy team for making the week a success.
