  • Contribute to occupational therapy strategy decisions in coordination with other therapists for residents with complex physical and sensory disabilities, seeking specialist advice when necessary.
  • Maintain continuity and effectiveness of service delivery by regularly reviewing treatment plans accessible to all staff involved in resident care.
