Abstract:
A descriptive research design was utilized to identify the quality of life perceived by 46 male veterans, ages 55 to 75 years. They resided in a domiciliary. The data analyses of the four quality of life subscales showed human dignity, the living environment, and health and medical care with more positive outcomes than activities of body and mind. The subjects also viewed their self-assessed health and self-assessed quality of life as positive. The care of increasing numbers of aging veterans in institutional settings is a major responsibility and concern of the nursing profession. Nurses need to be cognizant of the perceptions veterans have regarding their quality of life. Only then can nurses develop appropriate care plans and interventions to enhance their quality of life. Nursing's goal is to assist the veteran to function at the highest level of which he is capable.
