Older adults residing in a Long-term Care (LTC) facility are not given the opportunity to choose a roommate, yet are often asked to accommodate living with someone with whom they are unfamiliar. This descriptive study is designed to examine the relationships of demographic variables and the levels of hope and coping and the degree of bondedness among adult residents who are roommates in a LTC facility. In addition, it is expected that the degree to which demographic variables, hope and coping predict bondedness among residents in a LTC facility will be determined. Approximately 58 residents who have resided in a LTC facility for two months, able to read or hear questions, able to understand and write or respond in English will be solicited to participate. After signing an informed consent, participants will be asked to complete four questionnaires: (1) Demographic Information (2) Herth Hope Index, (3) Jalowiec Coping Scale, and (4) Emotional Bondedness Scale. Data will be analyzed using descriptive statistics. It is anticipated that the preliminary results will provide an understanding of what level residents in a LTC facility cope with their situation, how they bond or do not bond with their roommates and their level of hope.
