Abstract

Community-dwelling seniors with declining self-sufficiency are at risk for premature institutionalization. Early intervention while the senior has capabilities is the solution for guiding the elder to appropriate care along the continuum. This article demonstrates how a gerontological nurse as facilitator of healing helped an elder achieve the desired maximum quality of life.
