Methods: The research design used is a cross-sectional quantitative study with a research sample of 103 respondents. The sampling technique used in this study was purposive sampling. Results: The study found that the variables of family support (40.8%), knowledge of hypertension (42.7%) and lifestyle of hypertension patients (50.5%) were in the poor category. The family support variable has a relationship with the lifestyle of people with hypertension (p value = 0.000) and the knowledge of hypertension variable has a relationship with the lifestyle of people with hypertension (p value = 0.000). The results of the coefficient analysis showed that age was 0.041, last education was 0.284, duration of hypertension was 0.573, the results of the last blood pressure examination were 0.271, knowledge of hypertension was 0.000 and family support was 0.000. Conclusion: There is a relationship between family support and knowledge with the lifestyle of patients with hypertension.
