Purpose In the current study, the relationship between perceptions of successful aging and the life satisfaction of Turkish elderly people was investigated. Design and Methods This cross-sectional study was conducted with 561 elderly people at a public hospital. Findings The mean scores of the participating elderly people obtained from the Successful Aging Scale (54.34 +/- 11.55) and Satisfaction with Life Scale (3.46 +/- 1.01) were high, and there was a significant positive correlation (r = 0.305) between them. Practice Implications Activities to ensure successful aging in elderly people, such as training and awareness-raising, may increase their life satisfaction.
