Empowering Everyday Living #HappyOTMonth

Hello RESTORE Blog Readers,

It’s JaKaylah, one of the Clinical Success Directors at RESTORE, who just so happens to be a COTA!

Did you know that you are able to utilize RESTORE to reach your Life Skills goals?

All of our Life Skills games have qualities that we know, as clinicians, are important to us: safety awareness, cognitive skills, and sequencing. Under the Play & Practice section of the RESTORE platform, you are able to choose games that target specific IADL’s and are beneficial to your patients overall progress.

  • While playing RESTORE's Safely Home game, you are able to help both the resident and their family members recognize the safety hazards they may encounter inside or outside their home. As an OT Practitioner, one benefit of this game is, you can complete a Home Assessment which might have been challenging, in other circumstances.

  • Grocery Grab is played by using the grocery item list to begin your shopping experience in our market. The benefit of this game is the ability to simulate a shopping experience for your patients. They have to follow a specific list, add items to their cart, utilize money management skills by paying at the register, and even bag their groceries! 

  • Our Pill Skill game highlights medication management. We all know this can be a benefit in itself when patients are discharged to home.

 

Thanks so much for learning more about "Gamifying Life Skills." If you have any questions, please leave a comment or send me an email. Jakaylah@restoreskills.com. I love chatting with fellow practitioners!

Stay tuned! Our next Blog post will be out in 2 weeks. We will be addressing RESTORE as it relates to Admissions and Marketing.
