I recently donated Nintendo Wii gaming systems to resident councils at 18 different nursing homes in the Lynchburg and Roanoke area.
As reported in the Virginia Lawyers Weekly blog, "Appomattox nursing home liability lawyer Bob Carter is no doubt making friends with some regional nursing home residents with a gift of 18 Wii gaming stations." To read more on the Virginia Lawyers Weekly blog, click here.
As I explained in my letters to the resident groups, the Wii game has been reported to improve range of motion, balance and strength. Therapists have used Wii games for patients who require rehabilitation, called "Wii-hab.”
“I think heartfelt gestures like these will help improve the reputation that lawyers have in their own communities and beyond,” I told The Virginia Lawyers Weekly. “A little public service goes a long way."
