Data were analyzed by SPSS software using descriptive and inferential statistics (independent t-test, Mann-Whitney test, Kruskal-Wallis test and one-way analysis of variance).

Results: Of the 212 people surveyed, 51.2% of the elderly were male and the rest were women. 59.1% of the elderly were non-resident and the rest were women.
