Abstract

This cross-sectional study investigated performed activities and the level of satisfaction with everyday occupations among people (n = 67) with advanced Parkinson’s disease (PD), and how these factors and experiences of social relationships were related to mental well-being. Managing one’s hygiene and physical exercises were activities that the majority still performed, whereas few were engaged in work or other productive occupations. Perceived health problems and satisfaction with everyday occupations were important factors for mental well-being since satisfaction with everyday occupations may be an important focus for occupational therapists and other health professionals when supporting mental well-being among persons with advanced PD.
