Description

The purpose of this study was to understand occupational therapist’s impact in current and changing roles and routines for first-time foster parents as well as understanding how to establish, preserve and maintain such meaningful domains. This study allowed for insight into current and changing roles and routines for first-time foster parents. The results from this study allowed for further comprehension on how roles and routines were impacted, and that education and tools can be used to help decrease disruption to these domains. Understanding that taking on a new role as a foster parent means routines will be impacted in one way or another. Education on resources and support available and data from interviews and surveys may help to decrease such disruption and allow for roles and routines to be established, preserved, and maintained to improve the transition and overall quality of life.
