Residents in mental health residential facilities often experience impaired occupational and social engagement. Although many residents would prefer living in a home of their own, individualized support may be required to enable successful and independent engagement in daily living skills. This longitudinal case study evaluates the impact of individualized occupational therapy interventions to enable occupational engagement in the context of the transition to a home of one's own in the community in Ireland. The results demonstrate the potential benefits of this approach with improvements in competence and satisfaction in occupational performance and engagement and gains maintained one-year post intervention.
