Who says therapy can’t be fun? The innovative Therapy Center therapists at Amelia Manor conducted a fun cooking session for its patients!
Barbara Miller, an Amelia Manor short-stay rehab resident who plans to return home alone, led the group in cooking cheese and tomoato grilled sandwiches. The recipe was simple, but the long-reaching effects of the session were definitely multi-faceted. In one session, patients received Occupational Therapy, Physical Therapy, and Speech Therapy benefits – not to mention the social benefits of working in an encouraging and inspiring group.
Therapy Center hopes to implement the cooking therapy program in its other partner facilities. Watch for more information coming soon!
