Abstract: Possibly, for the elderly subjects a negative quality of life is equivalent to loss of health and a positive life quality is equivalent to a greater range of categories such as activity, income, social life and relationship with the family, categories which differed from subject to subject. Therefore, health seems to be a good indicator of negative quality of life, though an insufficient indicator of successful elderliness.

“…27 . Given that the literature 8,9,10,11,12,13 indicates a strong inverse association between quality of life and depression, we expected to find a negative relationship between the variables that explained better perceived quality of life and depressive symptoms in the elderly. The results confirmed the model, since an inverse relation was seen between the variables associated with better perceived quality of life and BDI (social class: r = -0.21, p < 0.001; self-rated health status: r = -0.34, p < 0.001; volunteer work: r = -0.14, p = 0.009; medication: r = -0.19, p < 0.001; data collection setting: r = -0.21, p < 0.001).…”
