Health promotion is important, even, and perhaps more especially, for persons having chronic health problems. As part of a larger study of health promotion in nursing homes, resident subjects were asked open ended questions regarding what they do to stay as healthy as possible, and about what in their facilities helped and hindered them in managing these activities. One hundred eighty residents from six nursing homes were included. Most named at least one activity they felt important to maintaining function or enhancing health. Exercise, especially walking was most frequently mentioned. However, exercise was also seen as important by persons bed-bound who could perhaps only move one or two limbs unaided. Other important activities centered around nutrition, socialization, mental stimulation and spirituality. Services provided and staff caring were most helpful; lack of sufficient help in the facility was a hindrance to the practice of health promotion. The openness of these residents to health promotion activities has important implications for the planning and implementation of nursing care in long term care facilities
