Older people’s health care is carried out by involving the family as a support group. If done optimally, the support pro-vided will help maintain the health of older people. The purpose of the study was to analyze the determinant factors (family support and burden) on the quality and satisfaction of life the older people. This descriptive correlational research was the second stage of previous research related to the identification of caregivers' burden when caring for older people. A sample of 104 respondents was taken through simple random sampling. The results showed that the family support and family burden affected the older people's quality of life (<0.05), but did not affect the older people's life satisfaction (>0.05). Family support and burdens affect the QoL for older people, which is due to the family's ability in caring for older people and the need for long-term services at home. Recommendations for health workers, especially nurses, are to focus not only on the elderly but also to the family's physical, psychological, and financial burdens to increase family support.
