    Abstract

    The purpose of this specialist thesis was to observe and evaluate the influence of fine art activities on satisfaction with life of the residents of the Care Home for Elderly people in Ljubljana. In this thesis I have tried to assess the impact that fine art activities, performed by the residents, had on their satisfaction with their lives. In my evaluation I have used the elements of the so-called action research, which is a qualitative method. Seven female clients voluntarily participated in this project. The results of the research show that participation in a fine art activities group produces higher satisfaction with life of the female residents of a care home; it improves their mood and state of health, and, to a lesser degree, reduces the need for sedatives and other medicaments.
