A Letter From The Founder Nathan Lamaster:
Hello Recreational Therapists,
In this time of craziness I pray that you, your families, and your patients are staying safe. We are all in this together, and I know that one day we will emerge as a people even stronger and more prepared for the future. As Recreational Therapists we have the unique challenge of caring for the social, emotional, physical, cognitive, and spiritual health of our clients during a world wide pandemic where we ourselves are struggling. I pray for wisdom for each of you in deciding what is the best way to be a light amongst all the darkness in this day and time. One of our amazing SMART Instructors, Eryn Sinclair (from Hackensack Meridian Health Hartwyck at Oak Tree; a long term care center), has created an Activities/Psycho-Social Well-being Care Plan that she wanted to share with each of y’all as a resource for your facilities so you can stay on top of the social distancing protocols. She asked that this be a FREE resource for everyone and that we use our platform to share it with the masses.
Please feel free to print it out and use it at your facilities. Also please pray for one another while we champion what life will look like after all of this is over.
