Miriam makes up one part of the wonderful team at Living Strength Occupational Therapy. We wanted to take a little time out to find out more!
Miriam, what made you get into the industry?
I wanted to be in a role that was able to help people in a really practical way. I was really interested in being part of the health industry and felt that OT was the perfect position for me. I love that as an OT I am able to engage personally with each client and holistically evaluate how best I can assist them improve their independence, safety and quality of life according to their goals!
What do you believe is the best part of your daily job?
Simple - My clients. I love sitting and chatting with each person. Hearing their stories and sharing a cup of tea. I love bringing a bit of light in to their day.
What has been your work highlight to date?
Watching clients become increasingly independent with activities and tasks that have been so difficult for them previously. Whether it's helping them feel safe and confident to walk independently to their local shops or something as small as being able to open a jar of honey independently. All the little wins make such a big difference!
We are passionate about helping our clients achieve more independence, better health and greater quality of life. We understand that being able to perform the everyday tasks can be life-changing so we tailor our services to each patient’s individual needs.
As Occupational Therapists (OTs), we are trained in a broad range of health sciences in order to deliver a holistic approach to patient care. Understanding the client first, their culture, family and values, along with their medical needs, is essential in creating a detailed plan for real quality of life.
