Abstract

The important role in the successful implementation of the elderly posyandu is family support and cadres. Family support encourages the interest and motivation of the elderly to visit the posyandu while cadres have an important role as a driving force in carrying out the goals of the elderly posyandu. This study aimed to determine the relationship of family support and the role of cadres with the frequency of elderly visit in posyandu. This study used a cross sectional approach. A total of 47 elderly people were distributed questionnaires related to family support and cadre roles related to the frequency of elderly visits. From the two research variables there was only one related variable namely family support with the frequency of elderly posyandu visits while no association was found between the cadre's role and the frequency of elderly posyandu visits.
