[22nd International Nursing Research Congress - Research Presentation] Purpose: The purpose of this study was to examine variables related to depression in elderly Korean immigrants including stressful life events, acculturative stress, family relationships, and social support.
Methods:  This study utilized a cross-sectional survey research design to explore the relationships between stressful life events, acculturative stress, family relationships, social support and depression among elderly Korean immigrants. 
Results: Using the regression model, this study identified that income, acculturative stress, and living place were significant predictors of depression.  As income declined, depression increased; living with one's adult children was associated with less depression; depression increased in concert with acculturative stress. 
Conclusion: These findings suggest that maintaining family relationship may be a key factor in preventing and/or lessening depression in elderly Korean immigrants.  Further research should be directed toward understanding family relationships as they unfold with immigration in elderly populations.
