Pet Shop Outing with Patients

11/19/2015

Community outings help assess a patient’s mobility, socialization, money management and return to community to name a few. Recently, patients were able to visit a pet store where each patient had the opportunity to practice community mobility skills, car transfer, negotiating curbs, safety with roller walker usage and selected a puppy (or various puppies) to hold. This was a great way to boost patient’s confidence prior to discharge home.
