People of Full Life: Banjo Pocha

Banjo Pocha, Mascot #1, Snohomish County Adult Day Health Center

My name is Banjo, and I’m a good boy. When I’m not wrestling stuffed bears, I help clients at Adult Day Health smile. I don’t know how I do it. I just look at them and they smile. It’s a gift!

Petting me is a good incentive for clients who do occupational therapy. For example, some participants need to build strength in their legs or to improve their balance. They spend a lot of time in their wheelchairs so they don’t fall and get hurt. Full Life Care’s occupational therapists help clients safely get up out of their wheelchairs to exercise their legs and walk.

When they finish therapy, that’s when I come in. Petting me feels like a reward for all that hard work! Sometimes I share my stuffed bear with them as a special treat.
