The Aging Suite is dedicated to providing older individuals, and their families and caregivers, with tips and tools for aging well at home. Aging Suite embraces the concept of Aging in Place, defined by the National Aging in place Council as the ability to continue to live in one’s home safely, independently, and comfortably, regardless of age, income, or ability level.
While The Aging Suite provides general information and tips on topics that may impact older individuals, the information provided is not intended to replace the services of skilled professionals, such occupational and physical therapists (OTs and PTs). Many individuals need these rehabilitation services to help them return and live at home safely. OT and PT services can be crucial in helping people return to everyday functional skills.
Visit The Aging Suite next week when we discuss the role of the OT and PT in the home environment.
