Method: Using cross-sectional data of 130 respondents aged 60 and above, a Confirmatory Factor Analysis method (CFA) were performed to analyze the unidimensionality and significance of all items in the instrument. Result: It was found that 10 of the initially 18 items measuring social aspects fix the unidimensional model CFA (RMSEA = 0.036 and CFI 0.995 all factors loadings coefficient were significant). Conclusion: A set of instrument consisting of 10 items measuring social and spiritual aspects of health deterioration among the elderly patient has been proven to be valid and can be used in nursing practice.
