Person-Centered Outcomes through Functional Approach to Recovery

June 7, 2018 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

Presented by: Select Rehabilitation, AJAS Premium Business Partner

This webinar training focuses on how a functional therapy approach can lead to greater outcomes for a more meaningful lifestyle. This will include evidence-based research supporting concepts such as how meaningful activities that reflect an elder’s preferences lead to greater quality of life and how functional-based therapy is more effective than impairment-based therapy.


  1. Describe ways in which a higher functional status can lead to a more meaningful lifestyle.
  2. Identify methods utilized by empowered therapists to achieve each elder’s desired functional outcome.
  3. Share how therapy might focus on increasing functions in each elder’s home in their own world.
  4. List functional-based therapeutic interventions that are being utilized to promote meaningful lifestyles (in place of the traditional impairment-based therapies.)
  5. State the results of higher functional outcomes across different types of function per diagnostic category.
