 Abstract
This study was conducted to determine the influence of satisfaction, self-esteem, and depression on adjustment of elderly patients in long-term care hospitals. The subjects were 116 elderly patients in 15 long-term care hospitals in B and K city. Data were collected from February 14 to March 30, 2015, and analyzed by t-rest, ANOVA, Scheff's test, Pearson correlation coefficients, and stepwise multiple regression. According to the results, there were significant differences in adjustment by religion, marital status, economic status, and perceived level of difficult problems. Adjustment was positively related to satisfaction and self-esteem. In addition, a negative correlation was observed between adjustment and depression. Meaningful variables that influenced the adjustment of elderly patients were depression, satisfaction, self-esteem, and religion. These factors accounted for 53.5% of the total variance in adjustment of the elderly patients in long-term care hospitals, and depression was the most influential factor. In conclusion, development and implementation of effective programs and strategies to reduce depression and to increase satisfaction with care and self-esteem is needed in order to enhance the adjustment of elderly patients in long-term care hospitals.
