3. Believing We Can Change
The etymology of “rehabilitation” suggests we can make fit to live in this home that is our body-mind-spirit. Empowering older adults to embrace themselves as still biologically dynamic and embace neuroplasticity in their ongoing home remodeling process is a key concept. Clinicians, patients, and caregivers can train our attention to discern experiences, environments, and choices that can consciously and unconsciously promote or demote wellness, well-being, and potential for successful rehabilitation.
