A Crack Doesn’t Mean Broken

Working as a Certified Occupational Therapy Assistant, you hear some funny things said by the folks you are helping and caring for. When thinking about balance I think of the following two lines said by a fellow therapist and the person they were working with:
Reach back for the chair before you sit so you don’t fall and bust your bottom.
Why, it’s cracked already?
That was back in 2016, when my focus was on fall prevention related to balance, coordination, regaining ability to shift weight, and points of contact. Fast forward to Spring of 2020 and my thoughts on balance have shifted to mental balance and coordination. We have seen a change when it comes to PAC Certifications. We shifted our weight from in person interactive courses to virtual interactive courses. It wasn’t easy, you could say it was, cracked already. We reached back into our history as a company and didn’t fall. Thanks to the PAC team for engaging our collective thinking brain, balance, and coordination to make the shift successful.
