My research

The research includes health-promoting activities and healthy aging, as well as older people's experiences of participation in relation to internet-based activities. In addition, how social internet-based activities can reduce experiences of loneliness and promote activity and participation. In the dissertation work, an occupational therapy intervention program has been created, with the aim of promoting meaningful social activities.

Title of the thesis: Promoting social activities and participation among seniors: Exploring and evaluating social and Internet - based occupational therapy interventions .
