CORTESE, Ricardo. Perception of health and well-being in old age. Subj. procesos cogn. [online]. 2018, vol.22, n.1, pp.17-42. ISSN 1852-7310.

Taking into consideration the contributions of Positive Psychology, this study seeks to identify the relationship between the assessment of well-being and the perception of health in a group of senior adults aged between 65 and 100 years old, in order to provide data to generate a more complete and balanced scientific understanding of what promotes a healthy, productive and meaningful life within this age group. The results obtained indicate that there is a direct relationship among the three dimensions of well-being and the perception of health, as valued by senior adults. Also evident was the fact that the emotional or subjective aspects of well-being are the ones that presented a higher correlation index with perception of health in senior adults. In addition, it was observed that 50% perceived their current state of health as good, followed by very good, and that high scores of psychological and emotional wellbeing predominated, but the scores for the social component were low.

Palabras clave : Positive psychology; Old age; Perception of health; Well-being.
