Problem solving task for my male patients. Unscrewing hinges off a door.
Each Jenga piece had a different OT activity or ADL written on it for the pt to perform, so while working on dynamic standing balance, fine motor skills, and problem solving with the game we also worked on ther ex, ther acts, and ADL’s as well, the pt’s loved it and it was great for activity tolerance with all the different activities!
Staff all being game changers by bringing energy, positive attitude, and fun to their residents. They were able to incorporate the Halloween theme into dynamic standing balance activities, ADLs such as dressing and grooming , and cognitive communication activities
We created this opportunity for our patients and staff to express their thankfulness and gratefulness during this season of giving. Our patients participated in this unity-building activity by using expressive language skills, direction following skills, dynamic balance during functional reaching tasks, fine motor/dexterity skills as they traced and cut out the feathers, and problem solving (especially as the turkey becomes more and more crowded with feathers). Our door is such a hit that our Administrator has suggested that the Activities Director should make another one for the long-term care side of the building!
