Occupational Therapy Month: Spotlight

April is Occupational Therapy Month. We would like to highlight some of our talented teammates. Meet Tara Ayers COTA/L.

Let’s meet Tara! She has been sharing her Occupational Therapy skills with the residents at Epworth for 10 years. As a therapist for 25 years, Tara says,” I enjoy working with my patients and coming up with new and safer ways for them to achieve the ability to do the things that they want to do in their lives more independently.  I just love my patients and learn so much from them too!”

Her first job was in a skilled nursing facility, “I thought I wanted to work with children, but I just fell in love with the older population and never left them.” Tara feels that everyone is a success story” and enjoys watching someone regain their independence through the therapy process.
