|Welcome to the Spaulding Rehabilitation Network Pediatric Newsletter. The fun-loving pediatric therapists from Salem, Lexington, Cape Cod, Charlestown, Foxborough, and Kent (RI) have teamed up to bring you a network-wide newsletter filled with educational articles, inspiring stories, and news of exciting events.
We are dedicating the first of our newsletters to you, the Caregiver. We want to recognize your compassion, hard work, commitment, and love. Whether you are a parent of a child with a disability, an aide, a grandparent, or another care provider, we say THANK YOU with our deepest respect and gratitude.
This newsletter focuses on a few different areas of caregiving and aims to help you find your strength. In this publication, you will find information on body mechanics, mechanical lift systems, caregiving resources throughout the network, and managing stress. Also included is a personal story authored by a pediatric occupational therapist who found herself on the Other Side of the Screen during the pandemic as a parent of a child requiring virtual therapy services. We hope these articles are meaningful to you.
Your Pediatric Rehabilitation Team at the Spaulding Rehabilitation Network
