This pilot mixed-method study explored the use of an activity log and a reflective journal to increase participation in meaningful occupation for female spousal caregivers. Results indicated increased quality of life and satisfaction in performance of meaningful activities. This study increases understanding of caregivers’ occupational performance and adds to the evidence base of OT by exploring an intervention to decrease the negative effects of caregiving.
