Related Factors and Relationship between Students in Secondary School and Elders in Their Families

Abstract

Good relationship between secondary students and the elderly in their families would be the important basic background for the younger population to understand the elderly and sequentially support them in the future. The purposes of this survey research were to explore the relationship between students in secondary school and the elderly in their families and investigate the associated factors related to this kind of relationship. A multistage simple random sampling of 460 students in the secondary schools within Nakhon Pathom province and Petchaburi province was used. The data were collected by self administered questionnaires consisting of personal characteristics such as gender, family economic status, the activities of daily living of the elderly, perceived relationship between parents and the elderly in their families and the relationship between students in secondary school and the elderly in their families. Data collection was conducted between May-October 2010. Data was analyzed by using descriptive statistics, percentage, mean, standard deviation. Student T-Test, Pearson product moment correlation and multiple regressions. The relationship between students in secondary school and the elderly in their families was at moderate level. After multiple regression analysis, the subjects perceived relationship between the parents of the subjects and the elderly was the independent predictor which could explain 50% of the variance of the dependent variables. The results indicates the significant inference of the relationship between parents and the elderly in their families for the students in secondary school to follow and support the elderly in their families.
... The instrument was adapted from Waelveerakup, Thumapiroj, and Suwannasarn in 2012. 29 It consists of 20 items with five sub-domain: joining in activities, communication, love and attachment, encouragement and support, and mutual understanding related to relationships in caring for those with chronic illness. Total scores range from 0 -40 with a higher score indicating higher family relationship [FR]. ...

Recombinant tissue plasminogen activator has been recommended and widely used in treating acute ischemic stroke. Unfortunately, the critical period for medical effectiveness is relatively short, and many people with stroke cannot access a hospital in time. This study aimed to determine factors predicting stroke pre-hospital delay behavior intention among people with high risk of stroke. In this cross-sectional study, people with high risk of stroke and their family members (n = 93 pairs) were recruited from a semi-rural province in central Thailand. The questionnaires used in this study included socio-demographic, dependency, stroke literacy, family relationship, and stroke pre-hospital delay behavior intention scales. Data were analyzed using descriptive statistics, Pearson's product-moment correlation coefficient, and multiple regressions. The results revealed that dependency, number of family members, stroke literacy and family members' stroke literacy were negatively correlated with stroke pre-hospital delay behavior intention among people with high risk of stroke. The latter was positively correlated with family members' stroke pre-hospital delay behavior intention. In a regression analysis, the family members' stroke pre-hospital delay behavior intention, stroke literacy, and dependence collectively accounted for 58.2% of stroke pre-hospital delay behavior intention. The findings suggest that nurses can develop an intervention to decrease stroke pre-hospital delay behavior intention by increasing stroke literacy of both people with high risk of stroke and family members, and promptly ask for help (dependency). These actions may help facilitate people to receive timely medical treatment.
