AbstractThis study examined the overall life satisfaction of personal care workers (PCWs) delivering dementia care in elderly day care centers in Hong Kong. A total of 142 PCWs participated in the present study. Regression analysis results showed that self-efficacy in dementia care was a robust predictor for PCWs' life satisfaction. Female gender, perceived adequacy of training, low staff to client ratio, and high emotional support from colleagues predicted a high level of self-efficacy. To promote a higher level of life satisfaction among PCWs, it is essential for organizations to enhance their sense of self-efficacy. Providing PCWs with adequate training that address areas specific to their perceived needs is of utmost importance in achieving this goal. Copyright © by The Haworth Press, Inc. All rights reserved.
