DEVELOP TREATMENT MATERIAL BASED ON PATIENT NEEDS. I have decided to develop at least TEN treatment worksheets that therapists at this facility can use as skilled intervention for patients with cognitive deficits. I will put these cognitive worksheets in a binder with explanation (5 pages) on how to use them. I also need you to discuss why Occupational Therapists need to aIDress the issue of cognition when dealing with older adults as it is within our scope of practice.

I need to look at a blank evaluation form used at this facility, that way Id be able list the areas of cognition that these worksheets would aIDress during treatment.
