Summary of "Is the Physical Environment Associated with Spiritual and Religious Coping in Older Age? Evidence from Brazil."

In this cross-sectional Brazilian survey, we examined associations between aspects of physical environment (PE) and spiritual/religious coping (SRC) behaviors. Our studied sample was 77 nursing homes (NH) and 326 community-dwelling residents (CDRs). Aspects of the PE were measured using the environmental domain of the WHOQOL-BREF. SRC was assessed using the BRIEF SRC scale. The PE was significantly associated with positive SRC alone and differed between the two studied samples. "Feeling safe in daily life" and "having access to health services" were positively associated with positive SRC behaviors in NH residents. "Having access to information" and "adequate transport" were significant among CDRs. Positive SRC behaviors are influenced by PE and should be considered in geriatric and gerontology care.
