  1. I liked listening to your ideas. One thing I do is combine cognitive tasks with activity tolerance standing with my patients in SNF. I bought a pack of Famous Landmarks cards and attached magnets to them. I then typed out in large font the names of these as well as the cities, states or capitols and affix these to lines of magnets. Then I place maybe l0 of these cards on a magnetic board hung on the wall and ask them to i.d. the names and place them below the pictures. From there we go onto the cities, etc. A lot of peeps recall many of these famous places and share the places they’ve been. Before they know it they may have been standing for l0 or l5″ which they’re not always aware of since they’re kind of having ‘fun’ with identifying the pictures. It’s easy to grade up or down depending on the patient’s cognitive /physical level.

  2. Great show – I am recommending it to all of my fellow students in the OTA program at River Valley Community College in Claremont, NH.
