Aging in Place, Part 2 summarizes some of the available research regarding older adults and aging in place (although it does not suggest evidence-based interventions that would benefit occupational therapists who wish to practice in this area). It offers readers the opportunity to understand the community living options for people who wish to age in place, as well as some of the funding possibilities for living, home modification, and long-term needs. Supportive community (e.g., adult day care, senior centers), health, and wellness services are explored to examine how they support the day-to-day living of many people age 50 and older. Finally, the module includes information on agencies and organizations with which OTs may collaborate to expand practice and consultation opportunities to better the lives of older adults who wish to age in place.


The goal of this continuing education program (the second of a two-part series) is to increase understanding of community-based programs and services, housing options, and organizations that occupational therapists may consult for support regarding aging in place. After studying the information presented here, you will be able to:
  • Identify community-based programs that support seniors aging in place
  • Identify housing options for seniors to age in place
  • Discuss community-based programs and senior housing options with organizations and agencies for aging in place

if able to set up a printer version, copy the article so that it can be referenced off-line, because you will need to go back and sort through the content for clarification of what you "think" the correct answer ought to be.
