The current study assessed the lived experiences of 24 institutionalised geriatric residents from an institution in Manila, Philippines. Using a non-experimental research design, participants were requested to complete questionnaires to measure their loneliness. Results revealed that blurring of vision was the most common physical agony (M = 3.23, SD = 1.31), irritability was the most common emotional agony to be identified (M = 2.67, SD = 1.37), whereas no notable mental agony has been identified on the study. Findings substantiate earlier studies that have underscored the problems encountered by institutionalised geriatric residents. Results obtained from this study could be useful for mental healthcare. Lastly, the results would contribute in the efforts towards collaborative works to better understand the experiences of elderly Filipinos.
