Leisure and Aging provides an overview of the aging process and its relationship to leisure. This book explores the aging process and how leisure can contribute to later life and also discusses the environment in which people age.

Topics include theoretical perspectives on aging; biological, cognitive, and psychological aging; motivations and constraints to leisure; living and community environments; and leisure and recreation in long-term care. This book is unique with a singular thematic approach, built on Ulyssean living, threading through each chapter.

The authors have experience at the higher education level. They have also presented papers and workshops at national, regional, state, and local conferences; have expertise in areas such as disabilities, aging, and health promotion; have completed studies on leisure constraints.
