dc.description.abstractThe increasing number of older adults in the United States has led to a growing number of people entering assisted living settings. Purpose and quality of life are important constructs in improving overall well-being for this population. This dissertation study investigates purpose and quality of life among assisted living residents. Secondary data analysis of a publicly utilized and widely accepted data set developed by the Center for Disease Control was employed. Analysis showed that participation in religious activities, socialization to include having visitors or living with a relative or spouse and being married or widowed were linked to the increased likelihood and presence of purpose and quality of life. These findings established a foundation for future studies on this essential topic.en_US
