Samenvatting

Many factors combined together affect the health of individuals and communities. These factors can, in a negative way, exclude them from doing what they wish, want or need to do. These are often not individual themes, and therefore should be addressed through community development. The overall aim of the project was to bring individ uals together, raise awareness of the benefits of a strong community for a better quality of life. As a community to identify occupational needs, and as a community address one of these needs collectively a nd link with other stakeholders who share similar goals for community level change. In this thesis we would like to inform the reader about occupational therapy, the community development approach, the context of older people living in Ireland and Galway and will demonstrate how the theory was implemented in a concrete project in Galway. Finally we will end with the strengths and challenges of the project and the recommendations for COPE and the participating communities.
