This study suggests that older adults in assisted living face a decline in meaningful leisure participation. OT practitioners can play a vital role in easing the transition into assisted living by ensuring that residents are still able to partake in their meaningful occupations, despite changes to their environment, social supports, or physical abilities. OT practitioners can also provide consultation to ensure that the activities offered meet the needs of the individuals and the community.
