A thematic synthesis of the implications for practice related to OT and aging in place found across available literature revealed six themes: client-centered care, autonomy, home modifications, community mobility, social participation, and caregiving. Clinicians should provide client-centered practice that emphasizes autonomy and individualized home modifications, reduces isolation, promotes accessibility within communities, and reduces caregiver burden.
