Ensuring that older adults are receiving quality and effective rehabilitation and
skilled nursing services must be a priority to society and to the health care
system, but health care policies and systems driving reimbursement continue to
challenge the delivery of services.
A review of the literature indicates
significant problems among residents of skilled nursing facilities (SNFs) that
could be alleviated by meaningful occupational therapy. Research and practice in
the occupational therapy community should focus on this large area of practice.
Advocacy by individual practitioners-challenging themselves and others to provide
more patient-centered care-can lead to changes that benefit clients, facilities,
and payment systems as well as contribute to career satisfaction of occupational
therapy practitioners. Occupational therapy can and should serve as catalyst for
culture change in SNFs by providing meaningful interventions and opportunities
that support engagement and health.
