EFPA30 Facing the challenges of ageing populations Contributions from Geropsychology Part 2. Quality of life, aging, and health behaviour The second part of the symposium addresses “Quality of life, aging, and health behaviour” and presents findings on personal and contextual factors that have an impact on these criteria. Fernández-Ballesteros, Angeles Molina and Sánchez Izquierdo (Spain) report findings on contextual influences in social images about ageing, testing predictions of the Stereotype Content Model. Lang and Damm (Germany) present theory and research findings on perceiving future time and its impact on preparing for old age. Despot Lucanin, Lucanin, Bjelajac and Delale (Croatia) present findings on the predictive contributions of psychosocial factors to life satisfaction in old adults. Finally, Ferring and Boll (Luxembourg) give insights into perceived gains and losses when caring for an older relative and their implications for psychosocial intervention. EFPA30.3 Life satisfaction and psychosocial factors in old persons Jasminka Despot Lucanin, Damir Lucanin, Adrijana Bjelajac, Eva Andjela Delale University of Applied Health Sciences and University of Zagreb, Croatian Studies, Zagreb, Croatia Life satisfaction seems to be one of the indicators of psychological adaptation in ageing, in connection to its two components: cognitive and affective. Psychosocial predictors of life satisfaction in old age have been determined predominantly by cross-sectional research, and are: social engagement, self-perceived health, and depression, adversely. There are no conclusive research results on longitudinal predictors of life satisfaction including social, physical and cognitive functioning in old persons. The aim of this research was to examine longitudinal predictive contribution of psychosocial factors to the life satisfaction in old persons. Participants were 167 older adults followed-up for eight years, and assessed at three measurement times, in years: 2008, 2010 and 2016. They were residents at eleven retirement homes in Zagreb, Croatia, 80% were women, aged 69-100 years, average 85 (at baseline 62-93 years, average 77), ambulatory and not diagnosed with dementia. Variables were: sociodemographic, depression, selfperceived health, functional ability, cognitive function, social participation. Life satisfaction variable was measured only in 2016. Data were collected individually, in the form of structured interview, by trained interviewers. Different regression analyses models indicated that the observed set of predictor variables explained 21% - 26% of the life satisfaction variance. The strongest cross-sectional predictor was self-perceived health, indicating the links of subjective health and life satisfaction. The significant longitudinal predictors were depression and cognitive function, adversely. The most interesting finding was the negative long-term predictive association of cognitive function variable with life satisfaction. Different interpretations have been considered. The possibility of living environment effects on old persons' life satisfaction and its associations with other factors has been discussed. The findings of this research support the adaptive processes view of life satisfaction and its determinants, cross-sectional and longitudinal. Recognizing the factors that affect life satisfaction in old age suggests also how to intervene in order to improve well-being in older adults.
