Abstract

Objectives: To identify factors associated with life satisfaction (LS) in people with Parkinson's disease (PD), including a specific focus on those with late-stage PD. Material and methods: The study included 251 persons with PD (median age 70 years; PD duration 8 years). Analyses involved the total sample and a subsample with late-stage PD, that is Hoehn and Yahr stages IV and V (n=62). LS was assessed with item 1 of the Life Satisfaction Questionnaire (LiSat-11). Simple logistic regression analyses were performed for both the total sample and for the subsample with late-stage PD. For the total sample, a multivariable logistic regression analysis was also performed. Results: In the total sample, 12 of the 20 independent variables were... (More)

Objectives: To identify factors associated with life satisfaction (LS) in people with Parkinson's disease (PD), including a specific focus on those with late-stage PD. Material and methods: The study included 251 persons with PD (median age 70 years; PD duration 8 years). Analyses involved the total sample and a subsample with late-stage PD, that is Hoehn and Yahr stages IV and V (n=62). LS was assessed with item 1 of the Life Satisfaction Questionnaire (LiSat-11). Simple logistic regression analyses were performed for both the total sample and for the subsample with late-stage PD. For the total sample, a multivariable logistic regression analysis was also performed. Results: In the total sample, 12 of the 20 independent variables were significantly associated with LS: need of help with ADL; walking difficulties; number of non-motor symptoms (NMS); fatigue; depressive symptoms; general self-efficacy; motor symptoms; pain; PD severity; freezing episodes; gender (woman); and fluctuations. When controlling for age and gender in the multivariable logistic regression model, depressive symptoms were negatively associated with high LS and general self-efficacy was positively associated with high LS. In late-stage PD, simple logistic regression analyses (controlling for age and gender) identified the following factors as associated with LS: number of NMS, general self-efficacy, walking difficulties and fatigue. Conclusions: This study provides new knowledge on factors associated with LS in a PD sample, including those with late-stage PD. As the ultimate goal for PD care should be improvement in LS, the results have direct clinical implication.
