Abstract

Objective: The purpose of this study was to determine the relationship between the history of hypertension and the perception of susceptibility with the level of adherence to physical exercise in the elderly who experienced hypertension. Methods: The study used a cross-sectional design. A total of 108 elderly people who had hypertension were selected using purposive sampling technique. Chi-square was used to analyze the data. Results: The results showed a significant relationship between family history (p-value = 0.037), the perception of susceptibility (p-value = 0.018) to physical exercise adherence in the elderly with hypertension, while age and sex did not have a significant relationship. Conclusions: Screening and developing community-based nursing strategies, providing health information early, and innovations in the development of physical training need to be done to motivate the elderly to do physical exercise.
