In order to investigate the correlation between the coping methods, loneliness and self-efficacy of the elderly, in this study, the evaluation of the elderly was carried out by using the self-efficacy and loneliness tables. After research, it is found that there are significant differences in loneliness among the elderly at different ages. There is also a significant difference between the elderly's gender differences in loneliness and self-efficacy. There was a significant negative correlation between loneliness and general self-efficacy in the elderly, and coping style was positively correlated with self-efficacy. Therefore, the elderly can master positive coping styles and improve their self-efficacy to reduce loneliness.
