Keeping clients active
Like many frontline workers, Tara Reed, Disability Support Worker for Torrens has been on the look-out for ways to keep our clients active and engaged during this time when isolation factors can be a challenge.
“I have set up Darren on email on his iPad so he can exchange photos with his sister and other relatives as well as getting him a smart watch to count his steps when we go out for walks. We have been encouraging one-on-one walks around the block. Everyone is getting involved with this,” says Tara.
“Keeping active is important – so we also got some soccer goals and ball. This was a real hit with Darren, Anthony and Cynthia (pictured).
“Other things include purchasing and organising ‘plaster fun house’ style materials to keep clients involved in creative craft work.”
