Inclusion: A Community Life For All (Episode 8)

https://vimeo.com/551610288

In this podcast episode, Bethany Hartropp and Sophie-Anne Scherrer, both Occupational Therapists working with the Disability Programs Specialized Services at the CBHSSJB, talk about inclusion and accessibility. We all have different abilities, sometimes because of age, health conditions or injury. This podcast talks about strategies for staying active and having roles in our family and communities when we or our loved one need extra help to do this.
