Description

Returning home is one of the most important discharge goals for today’s seniors. For rehabilitation therapists, home health can be rewarding and challenging with endless functional possibilities but limited clinical resources. This creative course presents fresh, exciting ideas to help patients achieve their functional goals using practical interventions and minimal resources.

In this recording, Susan Blair, one of only two Occupational Therapists who is dually credited by the AOTA Board in physical rehabilitation and in gerontology, presents her unique approach to creating an optimal therapeutic environment in today’s geriatric home setting. Help baby boomers return to the independent lifestyles they seek by properly assessing comorbidities and by incorporating patient-centered goals and priorities. At the same time, you will learn to create a functional intervention plan for geriatric patients by using everyday items to address specific therapeutic goals. This recording is a must-have for all rehab professionals who want to enhance their skills.
