Click for Full Details: www.biomedcentral.comThe aim of this cross-sectional study was to investigate the links between life satisfaction and health-related behaviours amongst functionally independent elderly people who prefer institutional living in İstanbul, Turkey.
The socio-demographic characteristics, health-related behaviours, leisure-time activities and fall histories of 133 residents of an institution in Istanbul were assessed by a structured questionnaire during face-to-face interviews. A validated life-satisfaction index questionnaire (LSI-A) was completed.
The findings imply that regular physical activity and leisure-time activities are significantly related to life satisfaction among residents in institutions. Participation in physical activity and leisure-time activity programmes may help to improve the life satisfaction of elderly people living in institutions.
