Introduction and purpose: Investigation and recognition of the factors affecting the quality of life are essential to start the behavior, and continuing the behavior can be a key factor in improving the living conditions of the elderly in Tabriz.
Methods: This descriptive-analytical study was conducted on a random sample of older adults living in the city and villages of Tabriz in 2021. Data were collected through standardized questionnaires of healthy lifestyle and cognitive impairment, psychological well-being, and depression from 422 old people. The collected information was analyzed using descriptive and analytical statistical methods in the SPSS software (version 22). The significance level of the tests was less than 0.05 in this study.
Results: The results of the data analysis showed that the lifestyle of the rural elderly had a significant and positive relationship with cognition (P=0.001, r=0.29). On the other hand, there was a significant and negative relationship between lifestyle and depression (P=0.001, r=-0.24) and a significant and positive relationship with psychological well-being (P=0.001, r=0.71). Among urban older adults, there was no statistically significant association between lifestyle and cognition (P=0.077, r=0.12), in addition to lifestyle and depression (P=0.9, r=0.009). However, a health-promoting lifestyle showed a significant positive relationship with psychological well-being (P<0.001, r=0.37).
Conclusion: According to the results of this study, the significant influence of lifestyle on cognition and memory, psychological well-being, and depression indicates the need for appropriate measures to improve the lifestyle of older adults.
