Occupational therapy and cupcakes at Macadamia Care in Tzaneen, Limpopo


One of the toughest parts of the aging process is losing the ability to do things that once were incredibly simple. When people lose the ability to complete everyday tasks, they tend to feel confused, frustrated, and sometimes even embarrassed.

Occupational therapy is a process that involves helping people at all stages of life develop, maintain, or recover the skills they need to daily activities that are meaningful and necessary. The type of occupational therapy a person receives will vary greatly on their needs.

At MacCare in Tzaneen, our Occupational Therapists work with our residents and teach them exercise and rehabilitation techniques that make completing daily tasks, such as dressing, eating, and bathing, much easier. The work they do help improve fine and basic motor skills, strength and dexterity. Even small improvements in these areas can make all the difference when it comes to completing an everyday task.

A fun and relaxing activity that everybody enjoys, is decorating cupcakes – great for improving fine motor skills and even better to cheer people up or brighten any occasion.
