Older adults live up to 30 years longer than previous generations. This life stage could provide renewed opportunities for occupational engagement or challenges depending on the status of a persons health and wellbeing. Occupational therapy can enhance, restore, or maintain occupational engagement. In this unit of study a global perspective on ageing informs the five themes directing lecture content, 1. Personal considerations when working with older adults, 2. Professional considerations when working with older adults, 3. Contextual considerations when working with older adults, 4. Life continuum considerations when working with older adults and 5. Scope of practice in aged care. Students will take an evidence based approach to occupational therapy service provision and will learn to provide occupational therapy for older adults from a client centred perspective, and to promote quality of life and wellbeing through continuing engagement in day to day activities. This unit includes learning activities that will contribute towards practice education hours.
