The clinic is a partnership between the McMaster University, School of Rehabilitation Sciences, the YMCA of Hamilton/Burlington/Brantford and Hamilton Health Sciences, through the LiveWell initiative.
The MAC H2OPE Clinic provides free occupational therapy and physiotherapy services to eligible adults in downtown Hamilton. The clinic merges opportunities for rehabilitation service delivery, student learning, and research to improve the health of people in downtown Hamilton.
Rehabilitative services are provided through a consultative model by either registered therapists or student therapists.
Occupational Therapists assist individuals to complete their activities of daily living when such tasks become challenging due to illnesses/injuries/disorders. These include tasks to take care of yourself, to have fun and to be productive.
Physiotherapists play a role in health promotion, treatment and management of acute and chronic conditions. Physiotherapists work with people of all ages to improve and maintain mobility, physical performance and overall health and wellness through the use of exercise, education and other techniques.
In addition, a number of health and wellness groups are offered by the clinic. Past topics include Stress and Anxiety Management, Falls Prevention, and Emotion Regulation for Building Social Relationships.
The following people are eligible for occupational therapy and/or physiotherapy through MAC H2OPE Clinic:
