What is Function Focused Care?
We recognize that increasing function and physical activity is critical to quality of life and clinical outcomes for older adults, but this doesn't always happen. This website will provide helpful information and techniques on how to encourage residents, even those who may be confused or unwilling, to participate in routine daily functional tasks and engage in other types of physical activity such as walking or exercise classes.
