Feeling productive, relevant and independent are significant to the quality of life of most people.  These qualities often become diminished with older adults as they are faced with maintaining dignity in the face of functional challenges.  This teaching strategy focuses on working collaboratively with an older adult who has both physical and psychosocial challenges to find resources to maintain independence and strategize to optimize his quality of life. The student explores resources that may be helpful to the older adult, and develops a plan of care for this client based on the prioritized needs.
