Summary of "Effects of Life Review Intervention on Life Satisfaction and Personal Meaning Among Older Adults With Frailty."

The current study aimed to examine the effects of life review intervention on life satisfaction and personal meaning among frail older adults. Seventy-four participants were randomly assigned to either the intervention or control group. The intervention group received the Haight Structured Life Review with modified guiding questions and memory prompts. The control group received usual nursing home care. The Life Satisfaction Index A and Purpose in Life Test questionnaires were administered at baseline and immediately after the intervention. Participants in the life review group demonstrated significant improvement in life satisfaction compared to the control group, but no significant differences in personal meaning. The study suggests that life review is a promising psychospiritual intervention for older adults, which could be delivered as a separate program or integrated into usual care in nursing homes.
