Abstract/OtherAbstract:
The relative effectiveness of providing individual and group activities, as compared to conditions of non-intervention, was studied on a long-stay female geriatric ward. Engagement levels were consistently higher during the sessions when activities were provided. Group activities raised engagement levels more than individual activities. This suggests that levels of engagement are normally low because patients are not provided and encouraged with activities, rather than through disability.
