Abstract

Older adults living in skilled nursing facilities (SNFs) and long-term care facilities are particularly susceptible to the coronavirus disease 2019 virus and face unique challenges during their rehabilitation process. This case report highlights the disease and rehabilitation course of an older adult who received all of his medical and rehabilitative treatment while residing in a SNF. The occupational therapy evaluation and intervention processes, as well as the client’s response to intervention, are described. The client’s positive outcomes are linked directly to occupational therapy’s ability to incorporate medical, physical, and psychosocial aspects into part of the interdisciplinary model of care in a SNF.
