[Research Presentation] Nursing home placement has been widely discussed in the literature as a stressful life event that challenges elderly people. Our previous studies revealed 52.05% nursing home elderly residents in Taiwan had evidence of mild or moderate depression. It has been claimed that elderly people's adjustment experiences are strongly influenced by their life experiences and socio-cultural values. It is therefore important to know the lived experience of these elderly residents in the nursing home. The purpose of this study will be designed to use previous qualitative findings to form and develop a reliable and validated nursing home lived experience model and measurement. A model developed in previous year that describes the lived experience of elderly residents in nursing homes within the cultural context of Taiwan will also be tested. Stratified random sampling will be used to determine 200 representative nursing home elderly residents from all over Taiwan as the sample, and confirmatory factor analysis (CFA) will be used to test the model. Finding of this study will provide an evidence-based model that explains the lived experience of elderly nursing home residents within Chinese culture and values. The model generated from this study will help in creating a caring environment that meet the needs of the elderly residents in nursing homes. It is anticipated that the findings will also provide a comprehensive data for the managers so that nurses can develop a better orientation program for residents. In addition, with the development of a validated scale, it will provide a common ground for comparison in later research in this area, e.g. study of other Chinese population elsewhere.
