Abstract/OtherAbstract:
The benefits of exercise to a person's health and self-esteem are well recognized. Yet, for the institutionalized elderly person, exercise can be a rarity. Unfortunately, too many gerontological nurses struggle to enhance their patients' quality of life and to reduce the risk of physical and mental deterioration while ignoring this basis nursing measure. Range-of-motion (ROM) exercise is one simple activity that can have unqualified results. It can strengthen an elderly person's quality of life by increasing self-control, self-functioning, independence and, thus, self-esteem.
