Physical Therapy Gardening Style!
During the past few years – headed by our Community Enrichment Coordinator Lauren Dick – Universal has made it a goal to create an on-premise garden fully run by the clients and therapists. As the garden project has continued to expand, many departments at Universal have found creative ways to incorporate therapy and enrichment activities utilizing our garden. This featured session focused on Physical Therapy (PT) goals with multiple clients who have varying levels of abilities and skills. Most importantly, the clients had so much fun being outside! Sometimes, the two best therapists are fresh dirt and sunshine.
Tuesday, February 15th; Physical Therapy @ Sport’s Universe
Our Livingston Physical Therapy department teamed up with our enrichment department to take several of our athletically-driven clients to Sport’s Universe today for their skilled P.T. sessions. Physical therapy sessions promoted client goals of ambulation, balance, core strength, mobility, and coordination. This is a brand new outing that we are offering our physical therapy clients that will be coordinated once per month. We look forward to seeing our clients continue to progress in their physical therapy goals while also doing what they love.
