Every year since 1980, the medical community sets aside an entire month to recognize a very special group of physicians. The month of April is a time for us to rightfully express our thanks to this group of medical professionals; a group of professionals who dedicate their own lives in aiding people back to a healthy life. Without these dedicated professionals, the medical world would truly be at a loss. So, for this annual Occupational Therapy Month, we would like to join the celebration, and share our gratitude with this outstanding group of health care providers.
Occupational therapists have always been there to flash a light at the end of the tunnel, to revive patients who were stripped of their hope, and to help them get their life back again. Words cannot describe the gratitude we have for our occupational therapists!
When our bodies are torn, and standing seems unbearable, occupational therapists are there to pick us up, and when our spirits are low, and hope flickers dim, occupational therapist are there to brighten us up. With their patience, dedication, and caring, occupational therapist have, and continue, to touch the lives of millions. It is no wonder we dedicate a whole month to them!
If you know an occupational therapist, show them some appreciation; give them a hug, shake their hand, or just shoot them a smile and show them that you care. This month is the month to send all our love and appreciation to this truly special group of healthcare providers.
If you don’t know anyone who is an occupational therapist, jump on social media and salute a #OccupationalTherapyMonth anywhere on Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter. Let occupational therapists know that you care, and join us as we celebrate these magnificent individuals!
