Abstract

Date Presented 04/05/19

Family caregivers are integral to our healthcare and long-term services and supports system. As such, effective collaboration must exist between OT and other healthcare providers and family caregivers when their loved ones are hospitalized and when they are discharged to home and community settings. We identify and describe types of interactions and barriers to these interactions, among healthcare providers, hospitalized older adults, and family caregivers.
