  1. Hosmer–Lemeshow test in model 1: p value = 0.602; model 2: p value = 0.602; model 3: p value = 0.371. Variables included in model 1: pain (VAS) and family caregiver. Nagelkerke R squared = 0.052. Variables included in model 2: pain (VAS), family caregiver, age, gender, living alone, education, and financial resources, Nagelkerke R squared = 0.105. Variables included in model 3: pain (VAS), family caregiver, age, gender, living alone, education, financial resources, functional status (IADL), MMSE, and worry about one’s own health, Nagelkerke R squared=0.172. The reference categories were the response alternatives: younger age, being male, living with someone, independence in IADL, high financial resources, high education levels, low MMSE scores, being a non-caregiver, having no pain (VAS), and not being worried about one’s own health. Significant factors are in bold
