Author: Winfield, John

Publisher: College of Occupational Therapists
Abstract:This opinion piece looks at the difference between meeting the strict criteria of physical needs in housing adaptations and the approach of supporting the 'occupation' of living. It argues that one cannot 'buy back' someone's home simply by meeting physical needs. In the area of adaptation, occupational therapists need to return to their core values of maintaining an individual's occupation of living.
