Abstract

This is an independent study survey seeking input to better understand the diversity pertaining to quality of life care for veterans. The survey is requesting feedback from Recreation/Activity Supervisors only, on what quality of life issues are impacting veterans every day. The research is targeting the Recreation/Activity Supervisors at a few facilities and not the veterans themselves. This survey is composed of twenty-seven questions, designed to analyze what the key influential factors are impacting the veterans from a Recreation/Activity Supervisors perspective. Also, it is to determine what diversity of recreational options are available to the veterans at each facility. This survey is collecting data to clarify how, either positively or negatively, regulations, money, volunteers, support groups, skilled and non-skilled personnel are impacting veterans on a daily basis. The goal is to understand why quality of life for the veterans is so completely different from state to state and even within one states operating facilities. This researcher believes that the lack of trained recreation/activity personnel available at each facility, specifically Certified Therapeutic Recreation Specialist (CTRS), is the primary reason for such a diversity of quality of life offered to veterans across the United States.
