Abstract:   (189 Views)
Background: Health and well-being of older Canadian adults have been extensively studied. Less is known about health and well-being of older Canadian adults with disability.
Objectives: To determine if participation in leisure and social activities has a significant independent effect on the overall health and life satisfaction of older Canadian adults with disability.  
Methods: A secondary analysis of cross-sectional data from the 2006 Participation and Activity Limitation Surveys (PALS) was performed. Respondents were those who reported disability and were at least 65 years of age at the time of the PALS 2006 (n = 7,500, representing 1,755,870 Canadians). “Participation in social and leisure activities” was measured based on four types of activities outside home in 12 months prior to the survey. The single item self-rated health was used to measure overall health. Life satisfaction was measures based on five items. Weighted data were used to describe the target population. Two sets of multivariate logistic regressions were conducted based on data for the total sample, and separately for men and women using bootstrapped weights. 
Results: A significant independent effect of participation in leisure and social activities on the general health and life satisfaction of older Canadians with disability, for both men and women, was confirmed.
Conclusions: Participation in leisure and social activities is a potential venue to enhance health, and well-being of older Canadian adults with disability.
