dc.description.abstractThe present study examined the relationship between quality of life and extraversion, adjustment, and time spent in residential care.12 participants from a nursing home in cork city were given a questionnaire on quality of life, adjustment, extraversion, and a short demographic questionnaire about their attitudes towards their experiences in the residential care home. Statistical analysis found no significant relationship between the variables, although thematic analyses appeared to support the limited previous research into factors such as autonomy, ethos of care, and activities that are considered important for quality of life.
