This module presents a theoretical discussion of aging in place that includes an exploration of what aging in place is and how OTs can align their practices to meet the client’s and the community’s needs. The Occupational Therapy Practice Framework: Domain and Process serves as a frame of reference.

This course was very informative because I learnt about the aging process. I have an aging parent and I learnt about some of her behaviors and how to deal with those behaviors. It spoke about adapting to changes and also how to prevent falls. The changes in the body and also the brain. It also informed me how to get help as a care giver due to stress related events. The role of the OT plays a very integral role in the aging process. I learnt a lot during this course and look forward to learning more in future courses.
