Community-dwelling adults with mild cognitive impairment or dementia participated in this mixed-methods study. Assessment of sensory processing and observations of environmental factors were conducted. Results describe adaptations between the person and their environment in terms of sensory processing patterns. Implications highlight opportunities for OTs to assess and intervene in environmental adaptation using a sensory-based approach.
