Explore the Therapy’s Benefits This February
Recreational therapy offers a unique type of support that’s different from other therapy techniques. It’s a form of therapy that uses engaging activities such as dancing or sports to improve a person’s well-being.
Typically, seniors and those recovering from a disease or injury are the types of people who benefit the most from recreational therapy. It’s customized by the therapists in charge based on what the individual needs, making it a very flexible and personalized form of support.
We celebrate National Recreational Therapy Month in February. It’s a month dedicated to raising awareness about the positive effects of recreational therapy. The campaign is aimed at enabling more people to become aware of the therapy’s benefits and encouraging those in need to give it a try.
Recreational therapy has become a major component in providing quality patient care.
To help you become more familiar with what recreational therapy is, we’ve listed below 3 of the most common recreational therapy activities recommended by experts in this particular medical field.
- Arts and crafts therapy
This form of recreational therapy uses the creativity of an individual to improve their health and behavior. Art therapy is a calming form of recreational therapy that helps individuals improve their overall well-being, both physically and mentally.
Dancing provides recreational therapists with a way to incorporate physical movement in a structured and supportive environment for their patients. Dancing as a recreational therapy activity feels less like exercising and focuses more on the individuals enjoying the sessions.
- Activity or adventure programs
Various outdoor activities or adventure programs may also be used as recreational therapy activities. Rope climbing or rope courses, mountain biking, and learning survival skills are some of the activities that can be therapeutic and build confidence (as well as independence) for individuals who need it
Your Old Car Can Be a Life-Changer for Needy Vets
Our veterans are among individuals who stand to greatly benefit from recreational therapy as well as other forms of therapy that seek to improve a person’s overall health and well-being. For all the challenges many of them are facing in these trying times, our nation’s heroes deserve to be given all opportunities to live decent and fulfilling lives.
You can help provide them with such opportunities by simply donating any vehicle that you no longer need to us at Veteran Car Donations.
We’ll auction off your donation and use the proceeds to support the life-changing programs and services that our veteran-focused charity partners deliver to their beneficiaries. These IRS-certified 501(c)(3) nonprofits are dedicated to improving the living conditions of veterans who are suffering from service-related disabilities and illnesses, including mental health issues, unemployment, and homelessness due to lack of support.
They provide their beneficiaries with quality healthcare, financial aid, housing assistance, employment opportunities, family support, educational scholarships, psychotherapy services, and many other benefits.
Donating to Veteran Car Donations is a walk in the park. All you have to do is contact us either online or by phone.
As our donor, you’ll get to enjoy the maximum tax deduction based on the selling price of your vehicle during its auction. We’ll send you the 100% tax-deductible sales receipt of your car within days after its sale. You can then use this receipt to claim your tax write-off in the next tax season.
You’ll also benefit from our free pickup and towing service, which is available to donors in all parts of the country.
Aside from the material rewards in store for you as our donor, you’ll also be privileged to enjoy a most satisfying donating experience, knowing that your act of charity will help transform the lives of our nation’s heroes.
You can donate not just your old car but almost any other type of vehicle that you no longer need.
