Physical Therapy Volunteer Opportunity

Looking for a student who would be interested in gaining experience by assisting my relative with physical therapy appointments. Six months ago he suffered a TBI. He will be getting his PT and OT therapies through Mapleton Outpatient rehabilitation. He suffered damage to his right eye and is unable to drive. He has dyskinesia in the right leg but is mobile and able to walk on his own. At this time, therapists have recommended that he be attended at all times.

We are looking for someone to drive him to his appointments two times a week and possibly shadowing the PT/OT. In addition, if possible we would be interested in having someone then oversee some PT time at home or the gym MWF for an hour or two.

If interested, please contact us at
