Summary

The only comprehensive book on geriatric occupational therapy designed specifically for the COTA, Occupational Therapy with Elders: Strategies for the COTA, 3rd Edition provides in-depth coverage of each aspect of geriatric practice, from wellness and prevention to death and dying. A discussion of foundational concepts includes aging trends and strategies for elder care, and coverage of emerging areas includes low-vision rehabilitation, mobility issues including driving, and Alzheimer's disease and other forms of dementia. Expert authors René Padilla, Sue Byers-Connon, and Helene Lohman offer an unmatched discussion of diverse populations and the latest on geriatric policies and procedures in this fast-growing area of practice.


* Unique! A focus on the occupational therapy assistant highlights the importance of COTAs to the care of elder clients.
* Case studies illustrate principles and help you apply what you've learned to actual situations.
* Key terms, chapter objectives, and review questions highlight important content in each chapter.
* Use of the term "elder" reduces the stereotypical role of dependent patients and helps to dispel myths about aging.

* Unique! Attention to diverse populations and cultures prepares you to respect and care for clients of different backgrounds.
* Unique! The companion Evolve website makes review easier with more learning activities, references linked to MEDLINE abstracts, and links to related OT sites.



* Unique! A discussion of elder abuse, battered women, and literacy includes information on how the COTA can address these often-overlooked issues.
* New information on alternative treatment settings for elders reflects new trends in OT care.
* Updated information on Medicare, Medicaid, and HIPAA regulations discusses the latest policies and how to incorporate the newest procedures into practice.
* Significant additions are made to the chapters on public policy, dementia, and oncology.
