Title: The quality of life the elderly people and their satisfaction with nursing care in their household


Background. Systemic changes in the population structure of Polish and other European countries have caused increasing demand for ensuring comprehensive medical care for the elderly people. Aim. This study aims to assess the degree of satisfaction of the elderly with the nursing care they receive in their home environment and to determine the relationship between that level of satisfaction and various dimensions of their quality of life. An additional aim was to identify the determinants of satisfaction with nursing care in a group of the elderly people. Materials and methods. The study included 122 people aged 75 years and older, receiving nursing care at their place of residence during the last six months; 43 people carne from Krakow and 79 from Nowy Sacz. Results. The results show a relatively high degree of satisfaction among the elderly respondents with the nursing care they received. The study also confirms that there is a relationship between the level of satisfaction with in-house nursing care among the elderly and their quality of life. The results for professional nursing skills are also correlated with the overall assessment of the quality of life measured by this questionnaire. The results also confirmed the impact of the degree of independence of the elderly people on their satisfaction with nursing care In addition, it was observed that satisf ; action from nursing care depends on their age. Conclusions. The quality of life among the elderly people is predicted by their satisfaction with the nursing care they received in their households. This study finds that this level of satisfaction is influenced by several factors, including: age, the degree of independence m carrying out daily activities and support received from others.
