In this study of satisfactions and dissatisfactions of residents of three retirement housing developments in Nebraska, 75 residents were interviewed. The purposes of this study were: (1) To ascertain the satisfactions and dissatisfactions of residents regarding the special design features of their apartments and auxiliary features of retirement housing units. (2) To ascertain the satisfactions and dissatisfactions of residents living in a housing community designed for the elderly. (3) To make recommendations for future housing units for the elderly.
The sample was composed of 25 residents of Clark Jeary Manor, 25 residents of Omaha Education Association Manor and 25 residents of Kearney Manor. All of the persons interviewed had resided in their housing unit for at least one year at the time of the interviews in October, November and December of 1964.
