Meet Gertrude Robertson
As an occupational therapist, Gertrude helps improve the quality of life for each of her patients.
Everyones needs and challenges are unique, and as such, Gertrude works with each patient to develop a unique plan of action. At the end of the day, the main goal of this partnership is to improve the patients comfort with daily activities and increase their independence. This career has taught Gertrude to never take anything for granted. “Appreciate every hour, minute, second that you’re able to function independently because many people are entirely dependent on others to do everything for them.” she explains.
Gertrude is constantly working to improve her craft. This includes researching the latest OT practices, as well as attending various seminars and conferences throughout the year. When Gertrude is not working, she keeps herself busy with leisure activities and her spirituality. This allows her to keep a healthy work-life balance.
