The aim of this study was to explore nurse managers' perceptions of quality of life of older adults living in residential care in Ireland and key policy issues. Residential care facilities ultimately determine residents' quality of life. A qualitative descriptive design was used in all seven focus groups with 67 participants. Two themes were identified: Factors Influencing Quality of Life and Factors Influencing Policy. Managers highlighted that the physical environment, making it like home, involving the family, the social environment, meaningful recreational activities, and community connections were central to residents' quality of life. It is argued that a Bill of Rights for older adults should be developed.
