People with PD who have eating difficulties and experience stigma may avoid social eating and reduce their overall social participation. This study presents a conceptual model of social eating in PD and the results of a secondary data analysis. OTs should consider the impact of eating difficulties upon the social lives of people with PD, and future work should focus on intervention approaches to optimize the social eating experience.
