On Tuesday, Oct 27th we celebrated World Occupational therapy day. In the Shopping centre City park occupational therapy was introduced with stands presenting various therapy equipment that can ease carrying out activities, especially for elderly people. The project Healthy and Quality Ageing in the home environment was introduced to passing people. On this occasion the following leaflets were being handed out: Introducing occupational therapy, the A-Qu-A project and invitations and application forms for adjusting homes to the needs of elderly people.

 

The response was surprisingly positive as we handed out over 100 leaflets for each area.
