“An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.” Benjamin Franklin
Did you know that in Canada falls are the leading cause of injury amoung older Canadians? And that 20-30% of seniors experience one or more falls each year? Falls are also the number one cause of both brain and spinal cord injury in seniors. How can we put a stop to injuries caused by falls? PREVENTION. Really, it is the best medicine. Learn how Occupational Therapists help to prevent falls in the following episode from our OT-V video series.
October is Occupational Therapy Month and to celebrate we will be sharing a new series called the A to Z of OT. In our attempts to further educate the public about what Occupational Therapists do we will be highlighting twenty-six of the awesome ways OTs provide Solutions for Living.
We encourage you to follow along and to add to the discussion by highlighting other awesome things OTs help with for each corresponding letter!
