Occupational Therapy in Parkinson’s Disease Rehabilitation

Synopsis

With a rapidly ageing population in Singapore, the number of people with Parkinson Disease (PD) is expected to rise. PD greatly affects a person’s lifestyle, including difficulties in performing activities of daily living, areas of self-care, work and leisure. In the rehabilitation management of PD, Occupational Therapy plays an important role in helping clients with PD maintain daily living skills, and learn new methods/strategies in order to overcome the limitations caused by PD and to improve their quality of life. This one-day workshop will provide participants with an overview of PD, evidence-based management of PD and therapeutic strategies in the area of PD rehabilitation. At the end of this workshop, participants will have a better understanding of PD, and be able to provide therapeutic interventions and strategies to improve client’s cognitive wellness, home safety and handwriting.
