Abstract


Quality of life is important to be recognized and Indonesia, as a developing country, has experienced the increment in the geriatric population from year to year. With this increment, the problems in the geriatric population and the number of the nursing home occupancy are also increasing simultaneously. One of the problems commonly affecting the geriatric population is sleep deprivation. The aim of this study is to find a relationship between the sleep pattern and the quality of life in the elderly in nursing home.
This was an observational study with cross sectional design and purposive sampling method. There were 55 respondents in this study. The coefficient contingency was conducted to analyze the correlation between variables.
There was no correlation between the sleep pattern and the geriatric quality of life in nursing home (p=0,582). There was also no correlation between the duration of sleep deprivation and the geriatric quality of life in nursing home (p=0,629). The physical aspect has the strongest correlation with the sleep pattern among the geriatric population in nursing home (r=0,359).
The conclusion from this study is that even though there was no correlation between the sleep pattern and the duration of sleep deprivation with the geriatric quality of life in nursing home, the physical aspect among the elderly in nursing home should be considered as an important matter
