520    Using Orem's Self-Care Deficit Theory of Nursing as the 
       theoretical framework, this descriptive correlational 
       study examined the relationships among perceived social 
       support, self-care agency, and self-care practices in 41 
       older community residing adults. Perceived social support 
       was measured by the Social Support Questionnaire, Short 
       Form (Sarason et al., 1987), self-care agency by Denyes 
       (1982) Self-Care Agency Instrument, and self-care 
       practices by the Denyes (1982) Self-Care Practices 
       Instrument. No statistically significant relationship was 
       observed between perceived social support and self-care 
       practices ( r = .03, p = .85). However, the relationships 
       between perceived social support and self-care agency (r =
       .40,  p < .01) and self-care agency and self-care 
       practices ( r = .56, p < .01), were statistically 
       significant. A multiple regression analysis indicated that
       perceived social support was a significant predictor of 
       self-care agency, (t = 2.75,  p = .009) and self-care 
       agency was a significant predictor for self-care 
       practices(t = 4.58, p = .000)
