Before becoming activities director, I worked as an OT tech. So I find that we work well together as well as on some of the same issues. It is easy to involve them in activities because the work w/ ADL's (like cooking) or UE exercise (like balloon volleyball). Balloon Volleyball can address different interventions and my involve PT as well. I think that OT is a great resource and compliment to Activities.
Hi. This is Z in Savannah, Ga. I work inside a hospital as an Activities Director. I have two units and a total of 33 patients. My pt's don't usually stay long so it's tough sometimes knowing what I need as far as equipment on hand. Actually, I have purchased everything so far. Well now that it is budget time is there anything you would consider a must have for your facility?
