In our study, we intended to identify the components of social well-being in the elderly. An examination of the intrapsychic and the interpersonal aspect also played a role in our research. A number of areas were measured by a questionnaire, such as traits, social well-being, the amount of exercise and the range of daily activities.
Our research group identified a huge need for research on social well-being in the elderly population. In Hungary so far not much has been published in this topic, however, understanding the key elements of well-being is a growing area of research in gerontology all around the world, since it is crucial how we manage our lives in old age.
