Orquidea Tamayo Mortera is the National Diversional Therapist for Summerset Group Holdings. She identifies as “Mexitiwi” – born in Mexico, married to a Costa Rican, and a New Zealand Citizen. Orquidea’s presentation will focus on sharing with attendees the importance of Diversional and Recreational Therapy (DRT) in aged care. It will focus on using DRT as a solution and positive non-pharmacological interventions to enhance older people's wellbeing and quality of life. Orquidea would love for people to see the real science behind DRT and the significance of this unique practice in today’s world.
Orquidea was once quarantined in Australia.
