The main task of occupational therapists (OTs) is to improve the older person’s quality of life by assisting them to have optimum functioning in the context of any mental, physical, or social disability. OTs assess functional disabilities, provide assistive technologies to correct functional deficits, help in the assessment of those who may need placement in care homes, and run therapeutic group activities. The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence, on behalf of England’s Department of Health, has produced a public health guidance on occupational therapy interventions and physical activity interventions that promote mental well-being in older people. This guidance recommended initiatives to promote nutrition (e.g., healthy eating on a budget), personal care (e.g., shopping, laundry, keeping warm), access to services and benefits, home and community safety, exercise programs of moderate intensity (e.g., dancing and swimming), and walking schemes. Updated evidence from the USA was consistent with this guidance by showing that a community-based lifestyle-based intervention delivered by occupational therapists improved mental well-being among ethnically diverse older people.

Dear Dr. Mel, may I know more about the nature of CSO service in HK? I wonder who will help offenders to reintegrate into the community.

Hi, I realized that it seems the concept “outcome” is different from the term “output”. Taking the grandparent training project as an example, what is the “outcome’ referable?
