Introduction and purpose: Depression is one of the most common mental disorders and a major problem in the lives of the elderly. One of the factors that counteracts depression in the elderly is the issue of hope and resilience in them. It plays an important role in combating the stresses and threats of life and its adverse effects. The present study aimed to investigate the relationship between resilience and hope with the rate of depression in the elderly.
Materials and Methods: In this descriptive - correlational study, the statistical population included all elderly people in Khorramabad in 1398. The study involved 357 participants selected through multi-stage cluster random sampling. Data collection tools included the Elderly Depression Questionnaires (Brink et al., 1983), Miller's Hope Questionnaire (1988), and Connor and Davidson's Resilience Scale (2003). The data obtained from the questionnaires were analyzed using the Pearson correlation and simultaneous regression analysis in the 21st version of SPSS software to evaluate the predictive influence of resilience and hope on the level of depression in the elderly.
Findings: The results showed that there is a significant correlation between resilience and depression and hope and depression. This means that resilience and hope have the potential to predict depression in the elderly, and together they predict 51% of the variance in depression.
Conclusion: Considering that resilience and hope in the elderly are subject to change for various reasons, it seems necessary to develop suitable interventions to increase the level of these two important components and thus reduce depression in the elderly in old age
