Abstract

Social participation is a criterion for successful aging. Research has shown that social participation decreases in older adults. However, the role of social support on older adults' social participation has received little attention, especially in eastern countries, such as Iran. Using the Social Participation Questionnaire, the relationship between social support and social participation was investigated in 525 Iranian older adults. A correlation was found between social support and social participation of older adults. Older adult women were found to have less social support and social participation compared with men. © SLACK Incorporated.
