The data were analyzed usingdescriptive statistics, frequency, percentage, and Spearman’s correlation coefficients through SPSS WIN 18.0 forWindows. Results: The mean score for self-efficacy was 3.70±.38, social support was 3.49±.66, and community participationwas 3.27±.65, out of a total possible score of 5. In the results on the frequency of engagement in activities andthe percentage of participants who view activities as important, most of the participants reported that spendingtime with family, cooking and housework, and engaging in hobbies or leisure activities are important activities.
