This two-part module will familiarize OT practitioners with concepts of aging in place and the pivotal roles that OTs can play in delivering all levels of service to older adults who wish to continue to live in their communities. Part 1 provides an overview of issues, current vocabulary used to describe living options, and how issues of aging in place relate to the Occupational Therapy Practice Framework: Domain & Process, 2nd Edition (OTPF). Support services are necessary for daily living and the roles that consultation, education and advocacy play to enable older adults to continue living in their homes and communities are identified.

  • Describe aging in place and its relationship to the Occupational Therapy Practice Framework: Domain & Process
