Abstract Research has shown that sociodemographic profile is related to life satisfaction in old age. The objective of this cross sectional study is to investigate the effect of stress and sociodemographic factors to psychopathology and life satisfaction for elderly residents inmountain regions in Crete and enlighten the mediating role of psychopathology on this association. A sample of 205 elderly men and women (meanage=77.1 years; SD =6.7 years) living in 10 remote rural and isolated villages were participated to this study. The questionnaire included: a) Social-demographic characteristics, b) The Symptom Check List 90 (SCL-90-R), c) The Holmes-Rahe Stress Inventory, δ) the General Health Questionnaire. Analysis of variance was applied to detect socio demographic factors that have a significant effect on psychopathology. Then, path analysis was applied to quantify the direct and indirect effect of selected socio demographic factors to life satisfaction. The effect of stressful life events found to be statistically insignificant on somatization, psychotic and phobic anxiety symptoms. These psychopathology symptoms were partially mediated the effect of marital status, smoking, family income and social activity on life satisfaction. These findings suggest that somatization, psychotic and phobic anxiety symptoms are psychic reactions independent of the current experiences of a person and are not affected by the traumatic events of adulthood. Our study may contribute to develop clinical appropriate assessment and interventions, helping primary care practitioners to approach more adequately elder persons living in remote villages, improving thereby the effectiveness of their interventions.
