Abstract

Descriptive non-experimental type was utilized. The respondents were from three (3) villages in Bacoor, Cavite who comprised of 26% of the total population. A total of 120 respondents were chosen randomly. Data instrument was a questionnaire. Likert scale was used to determine the attitude towards health promotion that includes importance of health, perceived control of health, perceived self-efficacy, and perceived health status. Statistical treatments used were percentage, mean, t-test and ANOVA. Based on the obtained findings, these conclusions were drawn: 1) In terms of the 3 level of prevention, subdivision residents have perceived that they have an average level of need for caregivers because they are not or have not experienced grave diseases (communicable or non-communicable) all throughout their stay there. Many claimed that they are experiencing or at least at risk of having diabetes and hypertension, which are highly hereditary, behavioral and dietary modifiable; 2) According to age, respondents who fall within the age of 46-60 has an average need for caregivers (which also has the highest level of need). According to income, those who earn P3,001-P5,000 a month has the highest level of need in terms of 3 levels of prevention from or have history of hypertension and diabetes because many of their family members suffer from or have history of hypertension and diabetes. This also made them the highest level of need in terms of secondary prevention which is within Level IV. 3) There is a significant difference between the level of need for caregivers as perceived by the residents in terms of 3 levels of prevention when they are grouped according to age and income.
