Abstract
Purpose: The purpose of this study was to investigate the factors associated with social isolation in older adults using a
senior welfare center. Methods: This study was a cross-sectional survey. Data was collected from June to August 2006
using a questionnaire. A total of 248 older adults responded. Results: About one third (34.9%) of participants responded
they felt socially isolated. There were statistically significant differences in living, religion, family and belongingness social
support, loneliness, depression, family function, perceived health status, and number of chronic illnesses between socially
isolated and non isolated groups. However, factors influencing social isolation were family function (OR=0.954,
CI=0.926-0.982), loneliness (OR=1.042, CI=1.002-1.083), depression (OR=1.041, CI=1.002-1.081), and number of
chronic illness (OR=1.657, CI=1.153-2.382). Conclusion: We found that some older adults were feeling socially isolated
even though the senior welfare center was a good place to meet people. The findings of this study indicated that older
adults suffering from social isolation need special attention and may benefit from interventions which promote health and
social interactions. Further studies are needed to develop and evaluate an intervention program for this population.
