Abstract

This study aimed to determine self-esteem and resilience as the predictors of successful aging among the elderly in nursing homes. This study used quantitative approach, participated by 127 elderly participants who live in nursing homes located in five cities in Central Java (Salatiga, Semarang, Surakarta, Magelang, and Pekalongan) (Mage = 74.57; SD = 7.49). This study utilized The Connor-Davidson Resilience Scale (to measure the level of resilience) and Rosenberg Self-esteem Scale (to measure the self-esteem) which were translated into Indonesian language. Successful Aging Scale were based on the Rowe and Kahn’s theory (1987) of successful aging. The results indicated that there was a significant effect of self-esteem and resilience simultaneously (F = 10.975; p = .000) on successful aging, suggesting that self-esteem and resilience are predictors of successful aging. The results of this study could serve as a reference for the government and nursing home managements to improve successful aging of the elderly who live in nursing homes.
