Background:

The purpose of this study was to identify the risk factors influencing cognitive function and life satisfaction in elderly living alone.

Methods:

It was cross-sectional descriptive study by using secondary data from the 2014 national survey of Korean elderly. The study sample consisted of 2,249 subjects who live alone, aged 65 years old and over. Data were analyzed frequency analysis, χ2-test, t-test, ANOVA and Logistic regression analysis.

Results:

The risk factors that significantly influenced cognitive function were old age, bereavement, lack of education, no regular exercise and low socio-cultural activity satisfaction. The risk factors that significantly influenced life satisfaction were no bereavement, lack of education, no work, negative evaluation of health status, diagnosis of depression and no regular exercise. Also experience of emotional and economical abuse, neglect of financial support and low cognitive function were identified risk factors of life satisfaction.

Conclusions:

The elderly living alone with risk factors of cognitive decline should be interested. To prevent or delay cognitive impairment, regular exercise and socio-cultural activities were recommended. It was suggested that the promotion of cognitive function, appropriate work and exercise, and social efforts to prevent abuse and neglect can contribute to improving life satisfaction of elderly living alone

Abstract PDF

The purpose of this study was to identify the mediating effects of emotional stability and social support in the relationship between major satisfaction and academic adjustment of college freshmen majoring in nursing and health science. Data were collected from 291 college freshmen majoring in nursing and health science using a self-reported questionnaire, which included a major satisfaction, emotional stability, social support, and academic adjustment. A Descriptive, t-test, ANOVA, Pearson correlation, hierarchical regression, and Sobel test were used for data analysis. The result showed that major satisfaction was positively related to emotional stability, social support, and academic adjustment. Emotional stability and social support was positively related to academic adjustment. Hierarchical regression analysis showed that emotional stability partially mediated the relationship between major satisfaction and academic adjustment. Also, social support partially mediated the relationship between major satisfaction and academic adjustment. These results suggest that emotional stability and social support can be effective variables in improving academic adjustment of freshmen majoring in nursing and health science. Overall, it is necessary to develop mental health interventions and networking system including strategies to improve emotional stability and social support in order to facilitate their academic adjustment.
