Occupational therapy’s role in facilitating aging in place for clients with advanced dementia

Occupational therapy’s role in facilitating aging in place for clients with advanced dementia


This webinar will outline the current topic as our population continues to live longer, the prevalence of dementia also continues to increase. Many of our clients desire to age-in-place, which presents a unique challenge to caregivers given the complex nature of dementia. Occupational therapists are in a position to help our clients with dementia and their caregivers remain successfully in the home. The presenters have created a program that combines in-depth caregiver training, home modifications, interdisciplinary medical and case management, with a focus on occupation-based interventions to facilitate safely aging in place for clients with dementia. Interventions, assessments, outcomes, and case studies will be reviewed.

After taking part in this webinar, participants will:

  1. Understand the benefits of in-depth caregiver training and consider strategies to implement caregiver training in a variety of settings.
  2. Identify home modifications to increase safety and participation in ADLs and desired activities for clients with dementia.
  3. Recognize the importance and benefits of occupation-based interventions for clients with dementia.
