Geriatric Occupational Therapy

Programs that provide occupational therapy for people who are elderly with the objective of slowing decline and improving health while promoting participation in everyday life. The therapist begins with an evaluation to identify the difficulties people may be having that interfere with independence and provides individualized interventions that help them perform daily activities in spite of the presence of illness, disability or injury. Geriatric occupational therapists work with seniors in a variety of settings including assisted living facilities, nursing homes, adult day centres and senior centres as well as in the home environment.
