Abstract

The samples answered 4 questionnaires: psychological capital, happiness, resilience, and meaning of life. Then empowerment intervention was performed for 40 days and 3 hours a day for case group. Empowerment interventions include healthy lifestyles, rehabilitation services, support services, cultural, sports, arts, tourism, and leisure services. Data were analysed using the multivariate analysis of covariance. The results of the study showed that the empowerment program caused a significant increase (p < 0.001) in psychological capital, happiness, resilience, and meaning of life in the post-test stage, which confirmed the four hypotheses. As a result, it can be concluded that an empowerment program is a good intervention to increase psychological capital, happiness, resilience, and meaning of life of seniors and can be used in treatment clinics.
