Abstract [en]

This study explores how 85-year-olds in Sweden perceive participation and autonomy in their life situations in relation to health-related quality of life and gender. A postal questionnaire included questions on socio-demographics, social network, assistive technology, community assistance, and the EQ-5D. During a home visit, an occupational therapist evaluated perceived participation and autonomy using the Impact on Participation and Autonomy Questionnaire. The majority perceived their participation as sufficient. Women had greater limitations than men in indoor and outdoor autonomy.  Only a few individuals reported many or severe problems with participation, mainly in mobility and leisure. Not having friends nearby, no close contact with neighbors, and living in community housing increased the risk of perceived problems. Sufficient participation was positively associated with higher HRQoL and facilitating participation is an area of interest for occupational therapists.
