‘Twas the Berks Heim Therapy Team ready to get to work
Smiling and waving hello to aides, nurses, and the unit clerk.
The therapists are ready to treat with compassionate care
In hopes that each resident is excited to see them there.
Some residents are nestled, all snug in their beds.
While visions of exercises dance in their heads.
And COTAs and OTs are ready to perform morning care
ADLs in the wheelchair – washing up, brushing teeth, and combing hair.
When outside the room there arose such a clatter
The resident excited to use the wheelchair to see what was the matter.
Jackie with directional cues to guide the resident to the hall
To see Ricki running to help a resident sit in the chair before going to fall.
Hilary across the hall ready to evaluate a morning routine
While Jill and Maddie enter neighbors’ rooms – more residents to be seen.
Chip is on his way to evaluate self-feeding during breakfast
While Stacy is sewing a palm protector to cross off her list.
Shannon and Lisa are discussing a plan of care with positioning for feeding
While Bonnie is adjusting a walker for safe gait training.
Nina is in a room working on swallowing strategies
And Maria is using ultrasound on the roommate’s knees.
Now Mel! Now Jazzy! Now Christian and Ian!
And Sal! And Kelly! And Rochelle! And Katlyn!
To the therapy gym, the dining room, or each resident’s room
Instruct with encouragement and positivity, absolutely no gloom.
Each day an opportunity to share your wisdom and smarts
Treating not only with your mind, but also your hands and hearts.
Easing pain, improving function, and stretching limbs.
Don’t forget about the SLUMS, BCAT, and BIMS.
