Abstract

One hundred twenty-two subjects aged 61 to 88 years were given a wide variety of tests around the time they moved to an apartment complex in which independent living and self-care was necessary. After living in their apartments approximately 15 mo., they were rated for how well they were faring in terms of a clinical dimension, from "played out" to "vital." Of 25 predictor variables, 14 were related to this dimension. Two were especially prominent--the WAIS Comprehension subtest and the Crossing-Off psychomotor task.
