dc.description.abstractObjective Changes in sleep duration, pattern, and quality occur with ageing. The aim of this study was to analyse the sleep quality and affecting factors in the elderly living either at home or in nursing homes. Design Descriptive and cross-sectional study Setting Sivas, a central Anatolian city in Turkey. Subject This study was carried out with 112 individuals; 52 were living in a nursing home and 60 at home. Main outcome measures A personal information form and Pittsburgh Sleep Quality Index (PSQI). Results There was no statistically significant difference between mean scores and sleep qualities of both groups (p > 0.05). The sleep quality of the individuals in both groups was not significantly influenced by personal variables such as age, gender, education, income, having children, and having a physical illness (p > 0.05). Individuals in both groups who reported their sleep as inadequate had sleep problems, and those who reported their sleep was affected for various reasons and who perceived their health as poor had significantly worse sleep quality (p < 0.05). Conclusion The sleep quality of the elderly living either at home were at similar levels and more than half of individuals in both groups had poor sleep quality.en_US
