Person-Centered Outcomes through Functional Approach to Recovery

Presented by: Select Rehabilitation, AJAS Premium Business Partner
This webinar training focuses on how a functional therapy approach can lead to greater outcomes for a more meaningful lifestyle. This will include evidence-based research supporting concepts such as how meaningful activities that reflect an elder’s preferences lead to greater quality of life and how functional-based therapy is more effective than impairment-based therapy.
- Describe ways in which a higher functional status can lead to a more meaningful lifestyle.
- Identify methods utilized by empowered therapists to achieve each elder’s desired functional outcome.
- Share how therapy might focus on increasing functions in each elder’s home in their own world.
- List functional-based therapeutic interventions that are being utilized to promote meaningful lifestyles (in place of the traditional impairment-based therapies.)
- State the results of higher functional outcomes across different types of function per diagnostic category.
