Correlation Between Adaptation Readiness and Psychological Well-being in the Elderly During the Transition Period of the COVID-19 Pandemic
The World Health Organization has announced that Indonesia has transitioned from a pandemic to an endemic period. This change means that vulnerable age groups, including the elderly, still need to be aware of the impact of COVID-19. The purpose of this study was to determine the relationship between adaptation readiness and psychological well-being in the elderly during this transition. This study used a crosssectional approach. This research was conducted in the Sukorambi and Kalisat District, Jember Regency, with a total of 102 elderly respondents who were recruited using simple random sampling. The analysis test in this study used Spearman with alpha <0.05. The results showed that the adaptation readiness of the majority of the elderly was sufficient, as many as 41 elderly members (40.2%), and psychological well-being in the moderate category, as many as 40 elderly members (39.3%). Spearman test results were 0.000 <0.005, with a correlation coefficient of 0.503. Elderly adaptation readiness is associated with psychological well-being in the elderly with moderate strength. Good psychological well-being conditions will help the elderly to be able to adapt to various changing conditions, especially during the transition period of the COVID-19 pandemic.
