  1. Key for abbreviation: NYHA class = New York Heart Association Functional Classification.
  2. Self-care; lower numbers indicate better self-care, Knowledge; higher numbers indicate better knowledge, Symptoms of depression; lower numbers indicate less symptoms of depression, Age; lower numbers indicate younger age, Dichotomous variables: Sex (men = 0, women = 1), Cohabitation (No =0, Yes = 1), Home help (No =0, Yes = 1), NYHA (NYHA class II = 0, NYHA class III-IV = 1).
  3. aUnstandardized regression coefficient.
