dc.description.abstractA descriptive study was conducted to determine the level of self-esteem in elderly women in two different settings, the community and the nursing home, and if there was a difference in the level of self-esteem between the groups. The relationship between self-esteem and the intervening variables of loss, health, role fulfillment, social support, and control was examined. Thirty subjects, aged 69 to 92 years, participated in the study, 15 from the community and 15 from a nursing home. The questionnaire focused on demographic data, intervening variables scales, and the Rosenberg Self-Esteem Scale to determine the level of self-esteem. The data revealed no significant difference of self-esteem between the two groups (p = 0.46). Community subjects showed a significant relationship between self-esteem and financial status (p = 0.001). Nursing home subjects showed significant relationships between self-esteem and age (p = 0.05), self-health (p = 0.004), compared health (p = 0.04), and control (p = 0.001).
