The study sought to demonstrate the relationship between perceived social support and quality of life among patients with renal failure. The study sample consisted of 123 patients from Jenin Governorate. The study results indicated a lack of statistically significant differences at the level of α ≤0.05 in the average levels of perceived support due to the variables of gender and duration of disease. There were no statistically significant difference also at α ≤0.05 in the responses related to quality of life due to gender. There were however statistically significant differences in quality of life due to the duration of the disease and mental health, in favor of the patients who had the disease for less than one year. Results also showed a positive linear relationship, statistically significant, between the level of perceived social support and the quality of life among patients with renal failure.
