Brief Summary:
In mobility, the potential for mobility and social inclusion, according to individual desires, represents the primary component of well-being and should be a priority for caregivers of older adults and older adults. As a result of our literature researches, it was found that there was no Turkish scale evaluating the living area. For this reason, this study was planned in order to translate the Turkish Life-Space Assessment [LSA] into Turkish, to investigate the validity and reliability of the Turkish version and to perform its cultural adaptation. Our study is expected to improve the quality of health assessment in our country, to contribute to objective evaluation methods, and to provide benefits such as assisting physicians, physiotherapists and other related health care team during the evaluation process.

Other: Validity and reliability of Life-Space Assesment
Life-Space Assesment and SF-36 surveys will be applied. The reliability and validity of the results will be analyzed.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Life-Space Assesment [ Time Frame: 3 Months ]
    Life Space Assessment is a scale that measures 5 different environments (such as in-house, neighborhood, out-of-province) and evaluates the amount and quality of movement in these environments.
