Gratitude Strengthens the Relationship Between Leisure Social Support and Self-Rated Health Among Nursing Home Residents
A central outcome indicator of person-oriented services in primary health care is self-rated health (SRH). Therefore, promoting SRH among nursing home residents is valuable. We examined whether demographic variables, gratitude, and leisure social support (LSS) related to SRH, and whether gratitude moderated the relationship between LSS and SRH. To collect demographic information and measure gratitude, LSS, and SRH, we conducted face-to-face interviews with 237 participants from four nursing homes in Taiwan. We used hierarchical regression analysis to examine data. Results demonstrated that duration of residence, gratitude, and LSS predicted SRH, and that gratitude interacted with LSS. We discuss implications of these results in terms of facilitating gratitude to promote SRH among nursing home residents and guiding them to seek sources of LSS. In particular, we further discuss how gratitude strengthens the relationship between LSS and SRH. [Journal of Gerontological Nursing, 48(2), 23-30.].
