The Seniors Flourish Podcast is an occupational therapy podcast helping occupational therapy practitioners working with older adults be the best they can be - not only by showcasing relevant interviews, answering questions, current articles and hot topics, but also to getting OT practitioners EXCITED about working with older adults, give actionable ideas that listeners can take and use in their own practice and have some FUN along the way

Listen in to Lauren Walker MOT OTR/L talk about how her team did this to produce better outcomes for her patients who experienced a stroke.
