EDUCATIONAL SESSIONS FOR CARE FACILITIES

Engage Therapy - Rehabilitation Services in Victoria, BC

LUNCH AND LEARN

Working at a care facility is often both physically and mentally demanding. Serious injuries can occur when dealing with various equipment and providing care to residents. This may result in a lack of efficient staff and affect the quality of care overall.

At Engage Therapy, our clinicians deliver a variety of educational sessions to promote physical function of both staff and residents within care facilities, including Long Term Care.

We also offer a lunch and learn: during all educational sessions we can provide delicious Latin American food from a local caterer based in Victoria. Upon booking inquiry please indicate if you are interested in this optional add-on.
