Principles and Practices of Geriatric Rehabilitation: Setting the Stage in Aging

PTA Focus 2012, Issue 1 FOCUS 2012 provides a 6-part series of monographs for the physical therapist assistant. We are fortunate to welcome Dr Jennifer Bottomley as the author for this series. Dr. Bottomley is a past president of the Section on Geriatrics of the APTA. She understands intimately the needs of older adults through her many volunteer ventures and her tireless advocacy on behalf of physical therapists working with older adults. The Section on Geriatrics invited Dr. Bottomley to author this series due to her interest in physical therapist assistants. She recently published a book, Geriatric Rehabilitation: A Textbook for the Physical Therapist Assistant.
