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

Our patients with Parkinson's Disease need to be challenged by occupational therapy practitioners! In this episode, Chad Moir, OTS discusses how he is honoring his mother's legacy by helping others live with PD - working with them through exercise and the Rock Steady program, as well as a wellness group and social support, all while finishing up his OT degree.

He is helping them live life to the fullest!
