Former Physical/Occupational Therapy Volunteer at Huntington Drive Health and Rehab Center
over 2 years ago
I volunteered half days in the rehab center. Most of the time I was either wheeling the elderly to the rehab room, wheeling them back to their room after they had finished their session. I would also push the wheelchair behind the patients as they practiced to walk with a cane or walker. I was right behind them with the wheelchair in case they tried to fall back and sit down. Lastly, I would bring different equipment over to the patients as directed by the staff members. If they were going to need light hand weights I would check their care plan and bring them over the weight that their therapist had instructed.
