This study focused on identifying health promoting behaviors of institutionalized elderly and the factors affecting these behaviors. Method: Data was collected from 107 elders in 6 institutions in Chungnam province from March to November, 2007. Data was collected by a structured questionnaire that included general characteristics, depression, social support, activities of daily living, self-efficacy, and health promoting behavior scales. The collected data was analyzed by the SPSS Windows 14.0 program including t-test, ANOVA, Pearson's correlation and multiple regression analysis. Result: There were significant differences in health promoting behaviors according to marital status, religion, perceived economic status and health status. Depression, social support, ADL and self-efficacy had significant correlations with health promoting behaviors. Powerful predictors of health promoting behaviors were depression, social support, ADL and self efficacy. Conclusion: According to these results, a nursing intervention to enhance health promoting behaviors is needed for elderly living in an institution in order to reduce depression and to increase social support, ADL and self efficacy.
