 Abstract
The purpose of the study was to explore job stress, coping strategies and life satisfaction, and to identify related factors in long-term care workers. A cross-sectional study was used to study 111 long-term care workers in Gyeonggi-do. Questionnaires were given to the workers, and data were collected between 1 February and 30 March 2015. The data were analyzed using a stress scale, and a life-satisfaction index. The major findings were: 1) The type of facility was a significant factor in life satisfaction of long-term care workers (F=4.11, p=.020). 2) A statistically significant relationship existed between job stress(r=-.46, p<.001), coping strategies(r=.21, p=.040) and life satisfaction. 3) The results of the regression analyses showed that job stress, coping strategies, and type of facility were statistically significant in predicting the life satisfaction level of long-term care workers. The result of this study provides a better understanding of job stress, coping strategies, and life satisfaction in long-term care workers.
