Abstract

Introduction: Increased human life expectancy has led to increases in the elderly population, both in developed and developing countries. Consequently, maintaining and raising the elderly's quality of life has become an important issue. Most studies on aging have found that a person's life satisfaction is strongly associated with their quality of life. This study investigated the moderating effect of activities of daily living on life satisfaction and quality of life.
