ABSTRACT

This study explored leisure experience for aging using qualitative research methods, indepth-interview. This study examined the theories, active theory and continuity theory, and analyzed the concepts, commitment, involvement, and Flow. Results indicated that the influential variables on aging people's leisure motivations were depression, stress, boredom, loneliness, and friends' invitations. Internal leisure meanings for them were explored with fun, self development, physical health, friendship, and mental health. And also outcomes of leisure activities gave meanings of live, fulfillment, and perceived role to them. The active theory and continuity theory were explored in this study. Finally the three concepts, commitment, involvement, and Flow were inter-correlated in their leisure experience. The conceptual model was suggested based on the results and the relationships.
