Impact of assistive technology with older adults and their family caregivers: What we know and avenues to explore
Description
Description: 

Family caregivers of community-dwelling older adults often report high levels of stress and burden. With the provision of assistive technology, occupational therapists working in home care help older adults cope with daily tasks and reduce the need for assistance. However, the impact of assistive technology use on family caregivers has rarely been a central concern. This webinar will: i) describe a 5-step process for a tailored assistive technology plan with an older adult and his or her family caregiver; ii) report study results following the implementation of an approach involving family caregivers during the provision of assistive technology; iii) discuss clinical implications and future avenues to advance our understanding of the involvement of family caregivers when providing an older adult with assistive technology. 

Presenters: Louise Demers and Michelle Plante

After taking part in this webinar, participants will:

  1. Be able to identify five steps of a home-based intervention that explicitly acknowledges the role of family caregivers in assistive technology provision.
  2. Understand the effects of an assistive technology intervention on family caregivers.
  3. Identify practice considerations when involving family caregivers in assistive technology provision.
