Abstract

The older adult population have been increasing around the World. The interaction of older adults with their physical and social environment is so important to promote age-friendly societies. In the present study, it is aimed to explore variables associated with satisfaction among older adults living at home and nursing home. Participants were composed of 1770 older adults living at home (N= 846) and nursing home (N=924). Results revealed that, regarding variables associated with home satisfaction, older adults having at least a hobby, participating in social activities, living with her/his spouse and living at a home belongs to her/himself or spouse had higher scores of satisfaction than their counterparts. Regarding variables associated with nursing home satisfaction, older adults referred to a nursing home by herself/himself, older adults having visitors (a family member or another person rather than a relative) at a nursing home, older adults visiting her/his family and older adults having at least a hobby had higher satisfaction scores than counterparts. Results were discussed with the literature and clinical implications.

Key Practitioners Message

  • The interaction of older adults with their physical and social environment is so important and identifying factors associated with satisfaction among the older adults living at home and nursing home are needed to assess on the basis of the ecological approach.
  • Living with a spouse at home and owning the house in which (s)he lives are significantly related factors to home satisfaction of older adults.
  • Participating in social activities and having hobbies are important for residence satisfaction among older adults either living at home or a nursing home.
  • Having a visitor (family member or another person rather than a relative) at a nursing home increases residence satisfaction.
