AbstractAbstract PDF
This study was conducted to examine the factors associated with meaning in life among elderly female community dwellers aged 65 or older who were living alone.
A quota sample of 222 elderly female living alone was recruited. Data were analyzed with descriptive statistics, independent t-test, one-way ANOVA, Welch's test, Pearson's correlation, and multiple regression using the SPSS 22.0 program.
The factors associated with meaning in life included age, education level, perceived economic status, perceived health status, social support, and loneliness. This regression model explained 66% of the variance in meaning in life.
Based on the results, comprehensive nursing intervention programs for enhancing meaning in life are required.
