The purpose of the paper is to review the literature related to the value of recreational and other activities and establish a foundation for legitimizing the activity therapy profession as a means of promoting cost-efficient care for the USA's elderly in long-term care settings. Improved life satisfaction is cited as a fundamental goal for nursing home residents, and a general argument is made for the effectiveness of activities in meeting that goal.
