Meet Mary & A Cognition Paradigm Shift for Home Health
There was a time when I DESPISED addressing cognition in home health. Dead end is how I viewed it. And then everything changed and today’s guest, Mary Platt, had a huge impact on my current fondness for this area in home health. In this episode we bite into cognition (think of it like eating an elephant). Learn how to start serving up OT to address cognition in some game changing ways. Perhaps even learn to start savoring this virtually magical niche for the immense sacredness it holds. Enjoy!

Engaged and Strengths-based? Ponder It.
Time to ponder being engaged and strengths-based. Dig it. (And no, we are not talking about putting a ring on it.) However, we are digging in to the meat (pick your protein for the vegans) of meaningful and healthy living. Here are the questions: How often do you...use your...strengths? And how engaged are you with your... life? How would YOU answer this. I dare you to email a response. Monika@homehealthOTexplorer.com. Thanks for listening!
