  • Confidentiality and Healthcare

    I turned on the television last night, to a channel that exclusively plays reruns of popular old shows. I was delighted to see ''The Bob Newhart Show.'' On air from 1972 to 1978, Bob starred in this sitcom as Dr. Bob Hartley, a psychologist with an endearing assortment of quirky patients who appeared on many of the episodes. I loved that show in ...

  • Why Peace Is The Way To True Happiness

    A friend of mine told me that when she was in Bali, she found it remarkable that instead of asking the typical question, how are you doing today, she heard people asking, ''Are you balanced today?'' While the distinction between these two questions might not appear that meaningful on the surface, I can tell you from experience that a deeper ...

  • Did You Remember?

    While it’s certainly important to be grateful for the “things” (e.g. family, friends, material possessions), I believe it’s equally if not more important to be grateful for no particular reason; to be grateful for THIS moment, which is all we ever really have no matter how much we try to delude ourselves into believing otherwise. As I was ...

  • You’re Not Going To Believe This

    A belief is nothing more than a thought we keep thinking. In the words of Henry Ford, ''If you think you can or you think you can't, either way you're right.'' The bottom line is that whatever we keep telling ourselves (or taking in from the environment) will be ''true'' in our experience. In The White Book, the author wrote, ''All beliefs are ...

  • Staying Well at Work

    The Ebola virus has been in the headlines quite a bit lately.  I had never even heard of it before a few months ago!  There have been many other health scares in the news over the years.  I remember a few years back, photos of people on a large jet all wearing masks because of some virus that mysteriously seemed to go away. But ...

  • A Disability Resource Expo

    October is National Disability Awareness month.  This year our community hosted its eighth annual Disability Resource Expo, as it does each October.  This county-wide event has grown larger each year and has moved from the mall to its new location at our local events center, and lasts on a Saturday from nine in the morning until ...

  • Help Fund the Jane Case Smith Memorial Bunch

    As many of you may remember, Jane Case Smith, EdD, OTR/L, FAOTA, BCP passed away over the summer. Every therapist makes contributions to the patients and families they serve, and the colleagues they work alongside.  There are not many clinicians in our field whose extensive reach simultaneously touches the lives of patients, families, ...

  • What is Occupational Therapy?

    At one time or another you probably had to answer this question if you attended school to become an Occupational Therapist. I'm still not sure if there is an easy answer to this question as there are so many areas where OTs work. The real confusing part is much of the information found via an internet search. I've found some of that information to ...

  • A Milestone

    A milestone is defined as an action or event marking a significant change or stage in development. Dealing with our patients as a COTA we often see their progress in small increments, but when they were able to finally achieve one of their long term goals I always liked to call it a milestone. Well today my blog has hit a milestone. This is the ...

  • Dealing with Death

    One thing anyone working in Long Term Care (LTC) will have to deal with is people passing away. During my years as a COTA I had several people I was currently working with die. It was never easy to deal with, but it's a fact of life. Since most people in a nursing home have already had some sort of illness or injury they are already compromised ...
