This cross-sectional exploratory study considers the community mobility and participation of older adults with dementia following a comprehensive driving evaluation. Older adults who stop driving go through changes that may cause health decline. Results of this study show the importance of socially aligned activities and their impact on quality of life, as well as effective areas for OT intervention to minimize the poor outcomes associated with driving retirement.
