-Rural areas have greater proportions of population that are ages 65 years or older and 85 years or older.
-Rural areas are rapidly becoming more diverse ethnically/racially.
-Many myths exist about rural older adults that affect the efficacy of programs and policies.
-Rural compared to urban older adults have lower incomes and higher poverty rates and are more likely to live in substandard housing.
-Rural older people have higher rates of chronic and acute disease, and health and social services are less available and accessible to them.
-Rural diversity or the differences among older populations found in various rural areas has not been well documented.
-Certain aspects of rural environments and living are uniquely rural and are not found in urban places.
-Understanding more about rural aging contributes to the understanding of aging in general.

Could you please give us a clue about how service users apply for the occupational therapy service of SRACP? As we want to evaluate the convenience for applicants to get access to this service.

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?
