Sleep should occupy a lot of our day. However, for many people it is hard to get adequate sleep. As an OT, I work to help people address difficulties with whatever occupies their time (or should). Sleep is often the first issue that I address.
This spring, I will be offering a course in Ottawa for women in their 40s or beyond who are struggling with sleep. Stay tuned for more details.
In February 2020, I am offering a webinar for other occupational therapists who want to learn more about addressing sleep for people with chronic pain. Registration is open through the Canadian Association of Occupational Therapists.
I wrote this ONE YEAR AGO today.
I am over-the-moon happy (THANKS to some amazing contributors--see below) that we have been able to get this ball rolling, and we now have women, like Cathie T. in Abbotsford, who are seeing health professionals who can support their perimenopause-to-menopause journey!
