Description

This research study aims to contribute to the field of occupational therapy through a focus on understanding an intervention focused on increasing volition to promote re-engagement in meaningful occupations for community dwelling individuals living with dementia. Dementia may contribute to a lack of motivation for engaging in goal directed tasks and meaningful occupations in people living with dementia; Professionals and care partners identify motivating loved ones with dementia to engage in daily occupations as a challenge. One proven approach found to be beneficial to stave off premature decline and maintain the individual’s performance of activities of daily living is use of occupational therapy interventions. The research seeks to amplify the understanding of the use of the Remotivation Process and Volitional Questionnaire, specifically, to educate care partners in the use of this intervention for individuals with dementia as a way to motivate the individual to engage in occupations once more.
