Participants in the study were 56 elderly women, 30 institutionalized elderly for the experimental group and 26 institutionalized elderly for the control group. The experimental group received the Mindfulness Meditation program for 90 minutes/session/week for 8 weeks. Data were analyzed using x2-test and t-test for subject homogeneity verification, and paired t-test to examine the hypotheses. Mindfulness Meditation program experimental group showed significant differences in sleep score(t=-4.406, p=<.001), quality of life score(t=-8.799, p=<.001).
