Myers, Jane E.; Degges-White, Suzanne
ADULTSPAN Journal, v6 n2 p96-110 Fall 2007
Residents (N = 142) of a southeastern, upscale retirement community completed measures of wellness, perceived stress, and mattering. Participants scored higher than did a group of adults under age 60 on 4 of 5 second-order wellness factors and Total Wellness, with medium to large effect sizes. Implications for counselors are discussed. (Contains 2 tables and 1 figure.)
