In Bantul Regency, Soragan Village which are located in Ngestiharjo, Kasihan, is one of the pilot locations. In its implementation, one of Posyandu Plus’s target is elderly people who aged over 60 years. However, the attendance of them only 50 % from the total population lived in Soragan. The objectives of the study were: to understand the implementation of Posyandu Plus, to understand the participation rate of elderly, and to understand the factors which are influenced the participation. Path
analysis was conducted using AMOSS 4.00 software. The results showed that the Posyandu Plus and its above additional counselling has been finely
implemented from, by, for and with the community, and the elderly’s participation rate was quite high. It can be concluded that family condition, and
knowledge were not significantly influenced the participation. On the other hand; motivation, role of community figures and services of health officers
significantly influenced the participation.
