Abstract [en]

Health problems as impaired mobility, eyesight or hearing problems in old age are often associated with reduced ADL (activities of daily living) capacity and as a result people may give up activities that contribute to well-being. However, the knowledge is sparse about the relation between feeling hindered by health problems in relation to ADL capacity, decreased or not. Such knowledge may be useful when outlining interventions to people already when people have no or modest impaired ability to perform ADL. Such information can not be captured through ADL-scales but by an overarching question about feeling hindered in daily living by health problems. Purpose: This study presents data on people’s (n=1524) 60-89 years feeling hindered by health problems in relation to their ability to perform ADL, health problems, social and financial resources, self-esteem and life satisfaction. Method: OARS (Older Americans Resources and Services schedule), Rosenberg’s self-esteem and Life Satisfaction Index Z. Results: People who felt greatly hindered by health problems had rarely someone who could help them when needing support, had lower life satisfaction and self-esteem compared to those not. Different factors were associated with feeling greatly hindered by health problems at different levels of ADL ability. Conclusions: Data from this study suggest that feeling hindered in daily living takes on a different meaning depending on functional capacity and thus preventive and visiting work should start early and be outlined differently depending on their ADL capacity. Also such an overarching question may be useful in detecting those in need of interventions.
