For many elderly individuals, living in an institution includes long hours of idleness accompanied with a sense of laziness. In an attempt to help the able-bodied individuals, an experiment was conducted that would assess the work capabilities and desires of guests living by allowing them to produce certain articles of their choosing for a small profit. The benefits of the experiment can be assessed in many ways including the satisfaction of those who participated.
