As the number of senior citizens entering retirement facilities increases, new and innovative approaches must be developed to address issues, past and present, affecting senior's quality of life. Findings of a prior study by Stock and Kanter (1980) indicate that responses on the Senior Apperception Techniques could be thematically categorized. The present study utilizes issues elicited by the Senior Apperception Technique to prompt life review and to provide care givers information useful in individualizing care within a retirement setting. Participants consisted of 26 subjects, 13 males and 13 females. Participation was voluntary and the subjects were free of severe emotional, mental, visual and hearing impairements. Collation of data indicates that the Senior Apperception Technique is useful in stimulation of the Life Review Process and, in turn, personalizing data contained within geriatric records.
