Marie from AnnRose Therapy & Health Services, has been working with my husband for 3 plus months. Marie came highly recommended by another OTR due to her specialty and experience in neuro and stroke areas. My husband is recovering from hemorrhagic stroke.
In the beginning my husband was not keen on doing therapy, but Marie was personable, upbeat, respectful, encouraging and not pushy. Her experience and insight was evident in the interaction and soon got my husband engaged.
Marie observed my husband’s natural inclination in personality and inquired about his hobbies. She incorporated my husband’s likes and past activities in the therapy exercises. She made it fun that my husband enjoyed doing them, as a result progress is evident and measureable. Marie explains the medical therapeutic principles behind the exercises, such as proprioception and mirroring. She’s educational and supportive, involving me in putting the exercises into daily practice, as well how the exercises and increased mobility apply to the end goal of functionality toward selfcare.
Marie is creative and resourceful, she observes the actual care needs in the home and caregiving to promote safety and optimal healing environment.
I recommend Marie to any one seeking occupational therapy for healing and recovery, especially in the neurological and post-stroke conditions.
