OPTIMIZING FUNCTION IN OUR OLDER ADULTS

 

Serving older adults through evidence-based rehabilitation, development of strong community partnerships, and an innovative research agenda, which is comprised of three aims: 1) gaining a better understanding of the illness experience for older adults with chronic illness, specifically those with dementia, through a biopsychosocial approach; 2) development, implementation, and evaluation of non-pharmacological intervention to improve lives of older adults; and 3) training and development of the growing eldercare workforce
