World Occupational Therapy Day

Every year on October 27th, the global community comes together to celebrate World Occupational Therapy Day, honoring the dedicated professionals who make a significant impact on the lives of millions. Occupational therapy is much more than a profession; it’s a beacon of hope, offering a helping hand to those facing physical, mental, or developmental challenges.

Occupational therapists are unsung heroes, working tirelessly to enhance the quality of life for people of all ages. They assist individuals in overcoming obstacles that hinder their ability to engage in daily activities, promoting independence and self-sufficiency. Whether it’s helping a child with autism improve their social skills or aiding an elderly person in regaining mobility after an injury, occupational therapists play a vital role in restoring dignity and confidence to those in need.

On this special day, it’s essential to recognize the transformative power of occupational therapy. It’s not just about teaching practical skills; it’s about instilling a sense of purpose and self-worth. Through tailored interventions, occupational therapists enable individuals to participate meaningfully in society, fostering a sense of belonging and accomplishment.

World Occupational Therapy Day serves as a reminder of the extraordinary dedication of these professionals. Their passion, empathy, and expertise create ripples of positive change, touching the lives of families and communities around the globe. So, let’s join hands in acknowledging and appreciating the invaluable contributions of occupational therapists, making the world a more inclusive and compassionate place, one therapy session at a time.

"OMG!! This nursing home is amazing especially this one worker. Her name is Michelle. When I tell you she's so great at what she does, I mean she's great. I visit my aunt quite frequently who resides on the 7th floor. Prior to her being assigned on that floor; there were a lot of unsanitary conditions especially the stench and filth. All of a sudden I notice this girl (Michelle) has been working on the floor and all of those unsanitary conditions including the stench left. I never seen a person that take so much pride and dignity in cleaning all of those rooms and the whole floor from top to bottom. This floor is like a brand new floor that I never seen. I'm going to pay her a visit the next time I see my aunt and make her an offer at my firm as a executive assistant!"

"This is a great place for rehabilitation... my father was at split rock on Baychester ave. In bronx and would go back and forth to hospital every 3 or 4 days because of carelessness with the staff... we said enough was enough when my father flatlined .WAYNE REHABILITATION has saved my fathers life. They are very good at diagnosing, rehabilitation and nutrition. Everyone there looks like they love their job. Never a problem with anyone any my father loves it there. He has recovered nicely and will be coming home soon. I highly recommend WAYNE REHABILITATION AND NURSING to everyone."

"I had a knee replacement and went to Wayne Center through a referral from a friend. I immediately noticed the ambiance of a modern facility to be very appealing clean well lit and organized. An administrative staff visited my room and explained their role and expectations. Nurses were very attentive and especially to the elderly and always smiling. Except for breakfast the food was very good quality and taste. Rehab staff was great I enjoyed working with Rosalyn she really made me work. Only drawback in rehab was they need another machine for legs. Staff was A+ from nurses, administration and maintenance-"noticed when their was a spill on the floor they would quickly clean up".
I would definitely refer anyone who is thinking of sending their parent, grandparent or loved one."
