How Fundamental Conditioning Factors Affect the Quality of Life of Older Adults Indonesians
Keywords:Quality of life, Older adults, SF-36, Fundamental conditioning factors
Introduction: Older adults experience deterioration of body functions which hinders them in carrying out daily activities, thus affecting their quality of life. The quality of life of older adults also reflects their health and well-being status.
Objective: The purpose of this study was to determine the influence of fundamental conditioning factors on the quality of life of Indonesian older adults.
Materials and Methods: Data were analyzed using descriptive statistics. Simple logistic regression was also used to estimate the odds ratio of good health-related quality of life. Two research instruments, a demographic data form and the SF-36 Indonesian version were utilized for data collection.
Results: Findings showed that the total score of the quality of life was at an appropriate level. The logistic regression of occupation and illness duration revealed a relationship with the quality of life of the older adults (p < .05); however, age, gender, marital status, and morbidity did not affect the quality of life (p > .05).
Conclusion: Older adults with jobs are highly likely to improve their quality of life as they can carry out activities, have social interactions, and make ends meet. However, the length of illness suffered by older adults may affect their quality of life. It is expected that nursing intervention provided, such as teaching proper health behavior for disease management, may help prevent complications and enhance the quality of life of older adults.
