Aim and objectives: The purpose of this study was to explore the inter-relationships among resilience, nutrition, and leisure activity of older patients with cardiovascular disease and possible sarcopenia. Besides, the patterns of these three variables over a long-term follow-up was examine. Material and Methods: Quantitative longitudinal study design was used in this study. Sarcopenia is related to aging, lack of physical activity, and malnutrition. Complex inter-relationships exist in patients with regards to their resilience, nutritional status, leisure activities. A generalized estimating equation (GEE) was used for long-term follow-up observations, and data were collected form one month (T1), three months (T2) and six months (T3). A demographic questionnaire and the Chinese versions of the Resilience Scale (CRS), the Mini-Nutritional Assessment (MNA), and the Leisure Time Activities Scale (LTAS), were used to collect data. Results: A total of 267 eligible participants were enrolled in this study, of whom 53% were men and 47% were women. The interactions among resilience, nutrition, and leisure activity were reported. Resilience was positively correlated with nutrition. Higher resilience was developed higher participation in leisure activities was found in older adults with possible sarcopenia. Conclusion: Resilience is a key factor for greater participation in leisure activities. Health professionals should develop feasible resilience interventions that would enhance patient's participation in leisure activities. Nutritional consulting and physical activity interventions should be combined in the case of older adults to prevent the occurrence of possible sarcopenia.
