Occupational Performance: Retirement (OCCP3078)

UNIT OF STUDY

Older adults may experience challenges participating in day-to-day activities during their retirement years. Occupational therapy can enhance, restore, or maintain performance of daily life activities, help to prevent future challenges from occurring, and assist older adults to continue ageing in place within community contexts. In this unit of study students will take an evidence-based approach to occupational therapy service provision and develop occupational therapy assessment, intervention, and evaluation skills specific to older adults.
