This three-part course will present strategies used by occupational therapists to promote healthy and safe participation in a variety of daily activities:
1) “Safe at Home” will focus on simple strategies and adaptations that can be used in the home environment to make day-to-day life easier and safer. (Instructors: Lisa Tebo, OTR/L and Cindy Hammecker-McLean, OTR/L);
2) “Staying Connected” will focus on using smart phones and other tech tools, such as social media, to connect with family, friends and community. (Instructor: Alisha Ohl, OTR/L)
3) “Healthy Hands” will focus on maximizing comfort and minimizing risk of injury for hands when aging-related conditions (such as rheumatoid arthritis) might otherwise interfere. (Instructor: Victoria Priganc, OTR/L).
All four presenters are licensed occupational therapists. Victoria Priganc is the Occupational Therapy Program Director at Clarkson University, and all four are faculty in the CUOT graduate program. Combined, these four OTs have well over 60 years of experience serving individuals with a variety of health conditions.
NOTE: Participants should bring their cell phones, and, if they desire, any additional lightweight technology, to the “Staying Connected Session.”
