This blog began as a journal of a Winston Churchill Memorial Trust Travel Award visit to the USA to study how Lifestyle Redesign could be used in Occupational Therapy to improve the hospital/home interface for older people. It has continued to record developments and inspiration gained from that experience since returning from Los Angeles early in 2012.

“Joy’s soul lies in the doing”

William Shakespeare, Troilus and Cressida



Shakespeare knew what Occupational Therapists would eventually adopt as one of their core beliefs. Research using the Lifestyle Redesign® process has shown that older people who are engaged in meaningful and enjoyable activities have better health and use health and social services less.

Age proof your life by ensuring that you stay engaged in the things that give you the greatest pleasure, or explore new interests and social networks. Your Occupational Therapist can help if required.
