Engagement in leisure activities has been claimed to be highly beneficial in the elderly. Practicing such activities is supposed to help older adults to preserve cognitive function, physical function, and mental health, and thus to contribute to successful aging.

We used structural equation modeling (SEM) to analyze the impact of leisure activities on these Cited by: 2. Passive leisure activities become alternative leisure activities for older adults as a result of limited physical capacity.
