The residents of long-term facilities are often content with the activity calendar or tend to isolate themselves in their rooms due to a lack of interest. This isolation and boredom tends to lead to further declines in socialization and interests. The goal of this study was to explore individuals’ interests, especially activities they may have done prior to living in the facility and may wish to actively engage in. Will engaging in purposeful activity increase the long-term resident’s quality of life?
