Abstract

The aim of study is to improve sleep quality of elderly by providing Jacobson progressive technique in

which Quantitative approach was adopted with Pre-experimental one group pre-test post- test. Study was

conducted in selected old-age home of Kheda district. 30 Sample was selected by Non-probability purposive

sampling technique. The Study instrument used by researcher consisted two sections i.e. demographic profile

and Pittsburgh sleep quality index. Reliability of the tool was 1.00 with the help of coefficient-correlation

Karl Pearson formula. Pilot study was conducted among 3 samples and the study was found feasible. After

two weeks of pilot study final study was conducted. Descriptive and inferential statistics was used to analyse

the data obtain was tabulated analysed and interpreted in terms of objective of the study. Average score of

post test was 0.966 with standard deviation 0.96. Researcher applied t- test for comparison between pre

test and post-test. Calculated t-test vales corresponding to this comparison were 4.52 and table value were

2.05 (p<0.05). T Calculated value is more than T Tabulated value hence the Research hypothesis (H1) is

accepted and null hypothesis is rejected (H0). So, it reveals that a Jacobson progressive relaxation technique

is effective to improve sleep quality among elders
