Abstract

Date Presented 4/7/2016

Themes that emerged in this qualitative study of the oldest old showed that they rely a lot on past memories for life satisfaction, including childhood, marriage, raising children, and serving others. They also continued to gain satisfaction via religion, socializing, and leisure participation.
