Productive Aging

AOTA has identified Productive Aging as a key practice area in the 21st century. Our society's rapidly aging population, increased longevity, the changing world of work, and baby boomers' focus on quality-of-life issues are some of the factors that will increase the need for services in this area.

We hope the resources below will help you in your practice. If you have additional questions, try posting them on OTConnections, a community for Occupational Therapy practitioners just like you.
