  1. The nature of leisure in the lives of older adults with intellectual disability.

    Article - En anglais

    The purpose of this study was to examine the nature of leisure in a sample of older adults with intellectual disability.

    Twenty-nine older adults participated in in-depth interviews.

    An interview guide was utilized which included topics relating to leisure participation and social interaction in a variety of environments.

    Data were analysed according to the constant comparative method.

    The most pronounced theme that emerged from the data was lack of self-determination in leisure.

    Participants had few opportunities to freely choose leisure in any aspect of their lives.

    In many cases, opportunities for self-determined leisure were further constricted by age-related changes in the participants'lives.
