September 2014 – Montego Bay, Jamaica

A team of five therapists visited three orphanages for the first time. Therapy staff at these orphanages had participated in training during the March missions in Kingston, but had not had the opportunity to have a Therapy Missions team at their home. The team worked with the caregivers and therapy staff to redesign the spaces throughout the homes to bring more appropriate intervention to more residents. Toys were made and equipment was adapted. The team presented an entire day of workshops for all the of MSC therapy staff. One topic presented dealt with taking care of the caregivers and therapist, with proper lifting techniques and tips for staying healthy.
