A descriptive study was performed to determine the perspectives of older adults and how supports impact their occupational performance in alternative housing communities. Participants in the cohousing community used more supports than those in the village; however, participants valued having many of the supports available even when they did not use them frequently. The study expands the knowledge base of how older adults value and utilize community supports to improve occupational performance.
