Abstract: Hypertension has affected on a person's quality of life, particularly on elderly people, including their social life, mental health, and psychological function. As a result, the elderly's quality of life will suffer, as will their life expectancy.

Objectives: This study aimed to determine the relationship between the duration of hypertension and the quality of life of those who have hypertension.

Patients and methods: A descriptive study with a cross-sectional survey was conducted with participants from the Management of Chronic Diseases Program (Prolanis) in primary care in Muara Dua, Lhokseumawe, Aceh, Indonesia. We employed a total sampling technique (35 participants) and collected data through guided interviews using WHOQOL-Bref questionnaires.

Results: We discovered that participants with hypertension for less than five years were 45.7%, while those with hypertension for more than five years were 54.3%. Physical domain (57.1%), psychological domain (57.1%), and environmental domain (51.4%) all fall into the "good" category of life quality measurement. Meanwhile, social relationship were in the moderate category (42.9%). The following p values demonstrate the association between the duration of hypertension and quality of life: 0.460; 0.719; 0.635; and 0.975.

Conclusion: There is no significant relationship between hypertension duration and quality of life among hypertensive patients enrolled in the Prolanis Program in Aceh, Lhokseumawe.
