Due to an anticipated increase in the older adult population, a survey research design was used to compare quality of life of older adults who live at home and are active in the community versus those who live in a long-term care facility. Data indicates that older adults who age in place and are active in the community report a higher quality of life. Additionally, socioeconomic status is a predictor of quality of life. The results of this study provide insight in gearing direction to care for older adults.
