Sammanfattning

Aging is accompanied with numerous biological and social changes that may compromise life-satisfaction. Aim: To examine the relative impact on life-satisfaction from functional limitations within the context of social, cognitive, and health related factors in the oldest-old. Methods and Material: Scales and questions regarding life-satisfaction (LSI-Z-index), functional capacity (instrumental and personal ADL), depression (CES-D), cognitive function (MMSE), social support, and economy was administered in a sample of 504 participants, aged 80–98 years; (M=83 years, 68 % women). Results: Regression analysis indicated that functional capacity is associated with life-satisfaction but other variables such as subjective health, social support, and economy were equally important. Discussion: The results correspond with previous studies and emphasize the need to analyze the relationship between functional limitations and disability within a broader context of social, emotional, and cognitive variables
