This Participatory Action Research aimed to increase the quality of life among community-dwelling adults through participation in a reflection-based problem-solving intervention. It explored the effects of group activity on functional mobility, social interactions, and emotional health in community-dwelling adults residing in subsidized housing. In a nine-week intervention, participants showed an 87% increase in functional movement scores on the TUG and social interactions.
