Description Objective: to analyze the relationship between the risk of violence and the quality of life of elderly community members. Methods: a cross-sectional study, developed with 159 elderly people registered in family health teams. The following instruments were used: Hwalek-Sengstock Elder Abuse Screening Test; World Health Organization Instrument to Evaluate Quality of Life. Results: the risk of violence was higher among the elderly with low quality of life through association tests (62.5%; p=0.380) and correlation (r=-0.244). There was a statistically significant difference (p=0.013) between quality of life of groups with and without risk for violence, and the analysis of logistic regression confirms that high quality of life is a protective factor for the exposure of the elderly to situations of abuse (Odds Ratio = 0.96; p=0.01). Conclusion: there was an inverse relationship between quality of life and risk of violence.
Objetivo: analisar a relação entre o risco para violência e a qualidade de vida de idosos comunitários. Métodos: estudo transversal, desenvolvido com 159 idosos cadastrados em equipes de saúde da família. Utilizaram-se instrumentos a seguir: Hwalek-Sengstock Elder Abuse Screening Test; World Health Organization Instrument to Evaluate Quality of Life. Resultados: o risco para violência foi maior entre os idosos com baixa qualidade de vida mediante testes de associação (62,5%; p=0,380) e correlação (r=-0,244). Houve diferença estatisticamente significativa (p=0,013) entre qualidade de vida de grupos com e sem risco para violência, e a análise da regressão logística confirma que a alta qualidade de vida se configura como um fator protetivo à exposição do idoso a situações de abuso (Odds Ratio = 0,96; p=0,01). Conclusão: observou-se relação inversamente proporcional entre a qualidade de vida e o risco para violência.
