This study describes the initial efficacy results of the Israeli version of Lifestyle Redesign©, aimed to promote healthy aging and prevent functional deterioration. In a pilot study (N=9), an improvement was found in participation, quality of life, and depressive symptoms. The qualitative data shed light on the active ingredients of this group OT intervention. An ongoing study is aiming to assess the maintenance of these results after three months and to compare them to a matched control group.
