Geriatric Rehab on a Budget: Functional
Interventions for Post-Acute Patients Using Everyday Items
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 one-day course presents fresh,
exciting ideas to help patients achieve their functional goals using practical
interventions and minimal resources.
Join Susan Blair, one of only two Occupational Therapists who is dually credited
by the AOTA Board in physical rehabilitation and in gerontology, as she 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 course is a must-have for all
rehab professionals who want to enhance their skills.
