Abstract

The elderly suffering from heart failure is facing with some problems such as lowering of life satisfaction and depression. Regarding a lack of information in this issue, the current study was conducted to determine the effect of religion intervention on life satisfaction and depression in the elderly with heart failure, in Ilam-Iran. In a clinical trial study conducted on the elderly with heart failure disease in Ilam-Iran, the patients were randomly allocated into two experimental (46) and control (47) groups. The used instruments were a demographic checklist, life satisfaction questionnaire of LSI-Z and Beck depression inventory. The intervention done for test group was a religion-spiritual program designed based on the Richards and Bergin model, and according to Islam and Shia regulations and conducted during six sessions, each 30-45 min. The tools were completed before and after intervention. Gathered data were entered into SPSS software and analyzed by descriptive (mean and standard deviation) and inferential (independent t test and ANOVA) statistics. The results showed that there was no significant difference between the mean (SD) of life satisfaction in the experimental group 5.47 (3.37) and control 5.85 (3.92) before the intervention (P = 0.62) but after the intervention. The mean (SD) of life satisfaction of the test group 8.08 (4.36) was higher than that of the control group 5.55 (3.96) (P = 0.006). Also, no significant difference between the mean (SD) of depression in the experimental group 47.80 (10.48) and control 49.87 (11.40) before the intervention (P = 0.62) but after the intervention. The mean (SD) of depression of the test group 28.28 (14.78) was lower than that of the control group 50.44 (14.02) (P = 0.006). Regarding the positive effect of religion-spiritual program in depression and life satisfaction of the elderly with heart failure, it is suggested this program will be educated to these patients by health-care workers.
