Abstract

Background & Objective: As life expectancy increases health promotion behaviours are even more important, particularly with regard to maintaining functional independence and improving quality of life (QoL). The purpose of this study was to explore the relationship
between health promotion behaviours and quality of life among elderly people in west region of Tehran.
Methods: This was a descriptive-correlational study. Through multi-stage sampling method, 410 participants over 60 years old and cognitively intact were selected to contribute in the study. The data-gathering tool consisted of a 2-part questionnaire Health Promotion Behaviour Checklist and Short Form Health Survey (SF12) that were used to measure QoL.
Results: The results of the study showed that there were statistically significant differences in QoL of the elderly related to 'exercise or walking and consumption of milk, dairy products, meat, vegetables and fruits and 'low salt diet', 'low fat diet', 'health check up', 'blood pressure (BP) (p< 0.05). The Elderly with high quality of life had more exercise or walking and consumption of milk, dairy products, meat, and fresh fruit and vegetables and the elderly with low quality of life, had better observed low salt diet, low fat diet, health condition control and blood pressure control.
Conclusion: Regarding the results we found that health promotion behaviours and the quality of life are related meaningfully, so, considering old people as a vulnerable group by health authorities, it is recommended to provide this group with programs and facilities to promote their health behaviours, social participation and to improve health care and provide consultation services.
