Stacey McIvor MS, OTR/L Owner/Founder of RESTORE Mobile Therapy, has been working in skilled nursing facilities, hospital settings, providing home healthcare services, primarily for the senior population, for the past 8 years, serving the greater Danbury area. 

Her passion is working with older adults, helping them to resume activities and become as independent as possible in their daily lives.  A licensed Occupational Therapist, Stacey is committed and passionate about providing her clients with the highest standard of services for their care and safety, enriching their lives while aging in the comfort of their homes and improving their quality of life.

Learning Objectives Attendees Should Achieve:

1. Participants will learn about ways to maximize the therapeutic value of items purchased at the dollar store

2. Participants will share their own resources and experiences with maximizing the therapy value of dollar store items.

3. Community of Practice members will pool their collective knowledge to develop a practical resource for how we can extract the maximum therapeutic value of items from the dollar store

Summary of Event: (500 Character Count Max)

This Home Care Community of Practice will bring together Connecticut home care occupational therapy practitioners to focus on addressing the feelings of isolation we are experiencing, especially in these times of the Covid 19 pandemic.  Using the principles of social learning theory adopted by theorists such as Etienne Wenger, participants will intentionally learn, pool knowledge, and share resources to better our practice. This event is sponsored by Connecticut occupational therapy practitioners. ConnOTA is supporting this event by overseeing the award of CEUs for registered participants.
