Abstract

The study used a correlational design employing the survey technique. The Rosenberg Self-esteem Scale and the Katz Index of Independence in Activities of Daily Living were used to obtain data from a sample of 239 out of 556 elderly respondents selected using simple random sampling. The data was treated using F- test/ANOVA, standard deviation, mean and t-test. The study concluded that, (1) The overall self-esteem of the respondents was very high; (2) The overall level of activities of daily living of the respondents was independent; (3)The self-esteem of the respondents was higher when they obtained a higher education; (4) The activities of daily living of the respondents were better when they were younger; 5) There was a very small positive correlation between the self-esteem and the activities of daily living of the elderly respondents but the results were found to be not significant, meaning that these two variables do not have any relation to each other.
