Activities, Adaptation & Aging
BB SIIC. Ingreso: 2007-
Editor: Linnea Couture
Complete and sensible concepts for developing activity services for the elderly!
Here is the working tool for activity directors and and all health care professionals concerned with the enhancement of the lives of the aged. Established as the primary journal for activity professionals, Activities, Adaptation & Aging provides a professional outlet for formal and informal research regarding the therapeutic implications of activities on quality-of-life issues and overall life satisfaction—in either institutional or community settings—for the elderly. This highly regarded journal also continues to provide timely and useful case studies and program evaluations.
The journal examines a wide spectrum of activities:
activity-based intervention for persons with dementia
activity determinants in independent-living elderly
activity implications in a variety of settings
activity participation patterns
activity implications for everyday practice
Activities, Adaptation & Aging addresses such important topics as evidence-based practice, evaluation, assessment of psychosocial history, culture and its influence on meaningful activity, activities and caregivers, volunteerism, and successful aging. Under the editorship of a leader in the field, the journal promotes a strong interdisciplinary thrust, drawing upon knowledge from the disciplines of physical, art, music, recreational, and occupational therapy; and social work, nursing, psychiatry, and medicine.
This journal contains several regular features, including book reviews, announcement and news, and “Aging, Activities, and the Internet.” There are also special thematic issues which cover specific topics, such as:
adult day programs
geragogy—teaching the elderly
the “Feeling Great!” Wellness Program for Older Adults
creative arts with older people
activities and adaptations with older adults who are developmentally disabled
story writing in a nursing home
therapeutic humor with the elderly
and many more!
