The majority of the nursing home residents in this study demonstrated a cordial, nonconflictive bond with their roommates. More positive bonds were associated with a greater number of positive emotions and greater satisfaction with the nursing home. Overall, results suggest nursing interventions designed to enhance roommate bondedness could promote psychological health and quality of life among a group of frail older adults.
