Covariates include: participants’ (1) number of visits to health providers at baseline, (2) IADL index score for disability at baseline, and (3) satisfaction with family and friends support. Note: covariates were entered simultaneously. Relative risk ratio (RR) and confidence intervals (CIs) were determined after means were adjusted for covariates.
