Title: Leisure education and older women's participation in leisure activities
Authors: Stewart, Wendy Rae
Issue Date: 1-Sep-2000
Abstract: Two studies were conducted to examine leisure education and older women's participation in leisure activities. The purpose of Study One was to determine the effects of a leisure education program on leisure participation in new, current, and re-engaged activities among older adults living alone in the community and receiving home care services. A single subject research design combining elements from the multiple probe and alternating treatments designs across subjects (ABC) was used in this study. Effects were assessed by introducing the leisure education intervention across subjects at different times. One subject received a one-hour leisure education program once a week (ten sessions over a period of 11 weeks). The second subject also received a one-hour leisure education program once a week (eight sessions over a period of ten weeks). Of the remaining two subjects in this study, one withdrew and another was eliminated, rendering it difficult to reliably and validly interpret the results. Study Two was conducted following the withdrawal of two subjects. The purpose of study two was to identify issues related to leisure participation in the homes and communities of five older adult women. (Abstract shortened by UMI.)
