HELPING OUR COMMUNITY Lessons From a Successful 2018

W hen my kids were little, we began a tradition that we’ve continued for the past decade. Like in most communities, Clermont has opportunities for those who are able to “adopt” a family for the holidays and buy some gifts on children’s wish lists. My wife and I felt this was a good way to show our children just how lucky they are and teach them about helping others. We would have our kids pick out some toys for the child we “adopted” that holiday season, which is an interesting quest for kids as they anticipate what their own gifts may be. As parents, we learned that children aren’t as greedy as they’re portrayed to be. Kids get excited about picking out a toy for another child, especially when the recipient is close to them in age. It shows children that there isn’t much of a difference between them and other kids in the community. Despite being transplants in the Clermont community, my wife and I feel it’s important to continue giving back to the community we’ve fallen in love with. We’re glad to see that this community continues to appreciate

It’s been a great 2018 at the clinic. We cared for more patients than we ever have before, and we have our loyal patients to thank for this. About 90 percent of our growth is due to our patients telling their family and friends about us. This, in turn, has allowed us to add more team members and services to the Four Corners lineup, including speech therapy. We’re excited to see what all this progress means for 2019. One area we’re particularly excited about is the continued expansion of our home and assisted-living visits. Home visits give a therapist the opportunity to get to know their patient better, and that only advances the level of care we can offer. But there’s another aspect of these appointments that is appealing to me as a professional, husband, and father in the community: This is a way for us to use our expertise to foster something positive for others. Our in-home patients have trouble getting out into the community, so when we see them for regular visits, we’re bringing the community to them. We’ve built plenty of long-term relationships with patients thanks to these visits, and we feel a responsibility to them as medical professionals and, ultimately, as friends.

Many physical therapists get into the business because they want to create strong bodies and get people back to doing what they love most. But there’s so much more a therapist can do for their community that has nothing to do with the body. We can show we care by talking about a patient’s dog’s new tricks or swapping recipes between arm reps. We regularly check on our patients and keep them connected to the community they are rooted in. People build better communities when they care, even in the simplest of ways. It could be showing your kids how to help others or visiting someone’s home to help them heal. Regardless, we all have a part to play.

Thank you for a wonderful 2018, and we can’t wait to see you in 2019.

Happy holidays!
