This paper offers a new approach that aims to improve the well-being of nursing home residents through implementing positive psychology. Developing care plans that include mindful practices as positive interventions may help improve cognition, mood stabilization, and amplification of character strengths. Specifically, residents engaging in the positive interventions may help improve their ability to live in the moment, while also learning to amplify certain character strengths as needed. Through improving mindfulness and learning to rely on their strengths, nursing home residents may become more self-sufficient during times of change. These care plans also inspire a sense of mattering within the facility because it shows the residents how much their care team values their well-being.
