Results: There was the difference in life satisfaction and quality of life of the elderly in the PSTW (state-run nursing homes) before and after the intervention both in the intervention group and the control group (p < 0.000). Conclusions: Culture-based interventions were effective to increase the satisfaction and quality of life of Minang elderly people.
