ABSTRACT

Purpose: This study aimed to identify the effects of social contact and participation in social activities on the health-related quality of life (HRQoL) of the community-dwelling older adults who experience subjective cognitive decline. Methods: This cross-sectional study was conducted using data from the 2019 Community Health Survey. A total of 16,828 were included in the final analysis. Data were analyzed using unweighted frequency, weighted percentage, and logistic regression with IBM SPSS Statistics version 25.0. Results: In the analysis using logistic regression, social contact and participation in social activities were associated with almost all areas of HRQoL. Social contact and participation in social activities had the most significant influence on self-care (Odds Ratio [OR]: 0.75, Confidence Interval [CI]=0.72~0.79 / OR: 0.81, CI=0.76~0.85). Conclusion: Social contact and participation in social activities in community-dwelling older adults who experience subjective cognitive decline significantly impacted their HRQoL. These findings could suggest the existence of an effective approach for developing interventions to improve HRQoL.
