Around the world, the elderly population is rapidly growing. Recent advances in science have extended longevity, being this increase in life expectancy one of the main challenges we are facing in the 21st century. Our efforts are now focused on accompanying this extension of life with well-being and quality of life in order to achieve successful and healthy aging. This Special Issue focuses on well-being and quality of life in the elderly. We welcome contributions based on predictive models of well-being and quality of life in older people, interventions to improve older people’s quality of life and well-being, or systematic reviews summarizing the most important findings to date. We hope to receive manuscripts (original research papers, review articles, case studies, and opinion papers) from different geographical, cultural, and economic settings.
We invite the submission of manuscripts describing qualitative or quantitative research in areas such as eHealth, active aging, physical activity, self-care, social support, spirituality and religion, frailty, health services, and pharmaceutical care and polymedication.
