Abstract

Date Presented 04/05/19

The aim of this study is to determine the correlates of social participation among older adults with disability. Participation in social activities is associated with improved health. Initial findings show that social participation is associated with mobility. This can be used as evidence to advocate for clients to receive necessary services to improve their social participation. Such evidence can be used in practice and possible policy formulation.
