Ergothérapie et nouvelles technologies : la participation sociale des personnes âgées en Établissement d’Hébergement pour Personnes Âgées Dépendantes

Abstract : Background: New technologies (NT) have been used to limit the impact of isolation for elderly people in retirement homes (RH) during the COVID-19 pandemic. There is little scientific literature on NT for the elderly. The aim of this study was to understand the role of occupational therapists in the use of new technologies to promote the residents’ social participation in RH. Method: A qualitative method was used. Semi-structured interviews were conducted with seven occupational therapists. Each interview was recorded and transcribed in order to carry out a longitudinal and cross-sectional analysis. Results: This study highlighted the importance of qualitative group or individual care to promote the social participation of residents, and it showed that NT are essential vectors for the occupational therapist. Discussion: Thanks to their skills, occupational therapists can target profiles for whom the use of NT is relevant, and train professionals such as activity directors who could take over in RH. This collaborative work would reinforce the benefits of NT for the elderly.
