Developed control enhancing interventions to increase level of perceived control and well-being of older adults living in retirement communities. Program participants (N=29) experienced significant increases in their perceived level of control and overall functioning whereas control group participants (N=34) did not. Results suggest that some declines formerly attributed to biological aging may be prevented or reversed. (Author/ABB)
