Abstract

Date Presented 03/28/20

The purpose of this study was to analyze the effect of functional levels, environment, and lifestyle of the elderly to their health and quality of life by using path analysis. Two hundred community-dwelling older people were involved. As a result of this research, it is evident that functional levels and physical activities affect health directly. Functional levels, activity participation, and nutrition also affect quality of life. This research can be a foundation to establish a model of the elderly’s lifestyle and health.
