Results: Two categories emerged: the relationship with the “I”, which is autonomy, independence, self comfort, respect for privacy, the practice of religiosity, and the relationship with the “other” made effective through affection, meeting individual needs, relationship with the staff, security, respect for privacy. Conclusion: The comfort characteristics of the elderly in a Long Term Care Facility for the Elderly presupposes subjectivity and objectivity, which must be incorporated into comforting nursing interventions.
