This study examined data of older adults who had sustained a stroke and their ability to participate in the community following rehabilitation. There were 95 participants in this study to determine the interaction effect of functional limitation and social support on community participation. The findings indicate that for people who had sustained a cerebrovascular accident, community participation was more related to their ability to do for themselves, rather than the support that was available to them. The implications of these findings for future practice, programs, and research are discussed.
