Abstract (Summary)

Researchers have found that more religious support is related to the life satisfaction of older adults. Religion is even more significant in the lives of the current cohort of older adults than in the general population; older adults view religion as very important. The older adult population in California is expected to grow twice as fast as the total population. Filipinos are the second largest Asian American population in the United States. Most Filipino older adults identify an urge to search for God's presence in their lives. Religion and spirituality are what motivates and guides people to live a meaningful existence. The goal of the proposed program is to improve the well-being of Filipino homebound older adults through religious involvement, education, and socialization.
