An occupational therapist (OT) will work with individuals who have suffered strokes to help them, return to work as efficiently as possible. However, there is a stigma that stroke only occur in older people and that is simply not true. Young adults suffer from a stroke as well and their loss of function may be more detrimental because they are in the prime of their lives with a lot of daily tasks and responsibilities.
I created an informative handheld pamphlet, that can be printed, outlining key points to educate OT’s and anyone that it may concern on the proper steps and rehabilitation of the individuals motor or cognitive problems. This can also be left outside in health clinics waiting rooms for families whose loved one has suffered a stroke so they can read and be informed as best as possible.
