OLIVEIRA, Daniel Vicentini de et al. Satisfaction with life and attitudes in relation to the old age of frequenters of coexistence centers in function of the physical activity level. Rev. Psicol. Saúde [online]. 2020, vol.12, n.1, pp. 49-60. ISSN 2177-093X.

This cross-sectional study aimed at comparing satisfaction with life and attitudes regarding old age of elderly people frecuenters of the coexistence centers according to the level of physical activity (PA). A total of 133 elderly people of both genders participated. A sociodemographic questionnaire was used, the Mini Mental State Examination, the Life Satisfaction Scale, the Scale for Assessing Attitudes Towards Old Age and the International Physical Activity Questionnaire (IPAQ), in its short version. Data were analyzed using the Kolmogorov-Smirnov test and the Mann-Whitney "U" test. A level of significance of p < 0.05 was considered. Physically active seniors are more satisfied with life (p = 0.013) and have more feelings of apprehension about the future in relation to old age (p = 0.002) than irregularly active elderly. It is concluded that for elderly people frecuenters of the coexistence center in the city of Sarandi, Paraná, PR, the practice of PA is an intervening factor for greater satisfaction with life.
