Engagement in prolonged sedentary behaviors negatively impacts health. Sedentary behavior and perceived occupational performance were explored among community-dwelling older adults. In this pretest–posttest study, a goal-based approach to OT was used for intervention. While additional research is needed, participant-developed goals involving meaningful occupations may impact occupational performance and sedentary behavior among community-dwelling older adults.
