The Relationship between Late-life Depression and Resilience
노인우울증과 회복탄력성의 관계
The aim of this study was to examine the relationship between late-life depression and resilience in the Korean community-dwelling elderly with depression. The subjects were 102 depressed elderly people who lived in Suwon and Gwangju, Korea. Each subject was administered the questionnaires regarding the socio-demographic characteristics, Korean version of the Mini-Mental State Examination for dementia screening(MMSE-DS), Brief Resilience Scale(BRS), and Short form Geriatric Depression Scale-Korean version(SGDS-K). In a cross-sectional aspect, BRS score were negatively correlated with SGDS-K score in the Pearson's correlation test(r=-0.301, p=0.002). After multivariable adjustments, linear mixed model analysis showed that subjects with baseline higher BRS score had significantly lesser SGDS-K score(β=-0.16, p=0.006). The level of resilience should be considered in predicting the change of depressive symptoms in the elderly.
