The socio-demographic characteristics, health-related behaviours, leisure-time activities and fall histories of 133 residents of an institution in Istanbul were assessed by a structured questionnaire during face-to-face interviews. A validated life-satisfaction index questionnaire (LSI-A) was completed.

Participation in physical activity and leisure-time activity programmes may help to improve the life satisfaction of elderly people living in institutions.
