Kicking Goals At Home
Meet community Occupational Therapist Eyvette and community customer Marion. Marion loves her dog Patrick and is a keen Eagles supporter, but experiences pain daily, making everyday tasks difficult. Through Eyvette’s expertise and support, Marion is achieving her goal of a life that’s less painful and more enjoyable.
She has trialled and purchased a new bed that has reduced her pain as well as an electric recliner which is well fitted to her body and more comfortable to rest in. Marion is also developing her tablet skills to help communicate with her family and friends online. GIFs, memes and emojis are all part of her new vocabulary, including experimenting with camera filters as pictured here.
When asked what she enjoys about her occupational therapy sessions, Marion said,
“It’s stimulating. I feel much more confident now because I can do more things on my iPad.’’
