Abstract

Purpose

To evaluate the relative importance of structural and functional social relationships for quality of life (QoL) and the extent to which diagnosed chronic disease modifies these associations.

Methods

Multivariate linear regression was used to investigate time-lagged associations between structural and functional measures of social relationships and QoL assessed 5 years apart by CASP-19, in 5925 Whitehall II participants (mean age 61, SD 6.0). Chronic disease was clinically verified coronary heart disease, stroke, diabetes or cancer.

Results

Social relationships–QoL associations were consistent across disease status (P-values for interaction: 0.15–0.99). Larger friend network (β = 1.9, 95 % CI 1.5–2.3), having a partner (β = 1.2, 95 % CI 0.5–1.7), higher confiding support (β = 2.2, 95 % CI 1.8–2.7) and lower negative aspects of close relationships (β = 3.3, 95 % CI 2.8–3.8) were independently related to improved QoL in old age. The estimated difference in QoL due to social relationships was equivalent to up to 0.5 SD of the CASP-19 score and was stronger than the effect of chronic disease (coronary heart disease β = 2.0, 95 % CI 1.4–2.6).

Conclusions

We found that beneficial aspects of social relationships in relation to QoL were, in order of importance: avoiding negative aspects of close relationships, having confiding support, having a wide network of friends and having a partner. These associations were not modified by chronic disease. Thus, despite inevitable physical deterioration, we may be able to enhance a satisfying late life by optimizing our social relationships.
