Background : Every year the number of elderly people in Indonesia continues to increase. In 2018 the highest number of elderly people was in the DI Yogyakarta Province, amounting to 12.37%. Data from Riskesdas showed that 51.28% of the elderly experienced health complaints and 25.99% of the elderly experienced illness. This can reduce the patient's quality of life.
