Overview

Hay (social work, Alvernia College, Reading, Pennsylvania) brings her education in gerontology, her professional social work in nursing homes, and her interest in conducting research to bear on life issues related to older adults living in nursing homes who are alert, oriented, and plan to live the rest of their lives in a nursing facility. She tests and adds to the literature showing that reminiscing is good for older adults. Her study differed from others by encouraging residents to reminisce both by writing about their lives, and by presenting what they wrote during weekly autobiography group meetings; and by allowing group members to make decisions on such matters as what day to meet, the color of their folders, and topics to write about. The text is double spaced. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
