This aging phenomenon is seen to cause a great impact and challenge to the development of the country. Approriate planning is needed to deal with this phenomenon and ensure the well-being of the elderly. This study was conducted to identify the elements of the well-being of the elderly and their level of well-being by making Bandar Baru Sungai Buloh as the study area.
