Relocation to a nursing home is a potentially stressful experience.
The purpose of this longitudinal study was to determine if person factors
(mastery, decisional control, and functional dependence), situation
factors (perceived availability of support and enacted support), cognitive
appraisal, and coping during week 1 post-relocation predict health
outcomes (self-assessed health, anxiety, and depressive symptoms) at weeks
4 and 8 post-relocation in older adults relocating to the nursing home.
Lazarus and Folkman's stress-appraisal-coping framework guided the study.
Data were collected at three time points, using face-to-face interviews. A
convenience sample of 127 older adults was recruited. Seventy participants
completed a second interview and fifty-four participants completed all
three interviews. Multiple regression analyses were used for hypothesis
testing. Mastery, emotional support, and integration support at Time 1
were significant predictors of the appraisal dimensions at Time 2. None of
the selected Time 1 person factors, situation factors, and appraisal
dimensions significantly predicted the health outcomes at Time 2. Mastery,
decisional control, and integration support at Time 2 were significant
predictors of selected appraisal dimensions at Time 2. Benign appraisal at
Time 2 was the only significant predictor for depressive symptoms at Time
3. Although none of the Time 1 variables was significantly predictive of
self-assessed health at Time 3, emotional support at Time 1 significantly
predicted state anxiety at Time 3 and benign appraisal at Time 1
significantly predicted depressive symptoms at Time 3. Participants used a
variety of coping strategies with emotion-focused coping used more
frequently than problem-focused coping. Significant findings from this
study emphasized the importance of mastery, social support, and cognitive
appraisal of the older adult relocating to the nursing home.
