Aims: Identifying the factors affecting the older adult's quality of life can be effective in finding ways to improve their quality of life. Therefore, this study aimed to investigate the factors affecting older adults' quality of life in Middle Eastern countries.
Information & Methods: This systematic review study was conducted in March and April 2020. According to the World Health Organization classification, studies published up to April 2020 on older adults aged 60 years and older were included. STROBE was used to screen and evaluate articles. Articles were searched without language restrictions using Web of Science, Medline, Scopus, Magiran, Proquest, SID, Noormags, IranDoc, and the keywords of quality of life, elder, aging, aging, seniors, and old age conducted in all Middle Eastern countries.
Findings: In the initial search, 1606 articles were obtained. After screening, finally, 123 articles were reviewed. The results were classified into four categories, including socio-demographic, psychological, physical, and spiritual factors. The results showed that socio-demographic and physical factors were the most important factors. In Iran, demographic factors, in Turkey, diseases, and the Arab countries, health-related behaviors were more frequent and had a significant relationship with quality of life.
Conclusion: The elderly's quality of life in the Middle East is related to various factors, including socio-demographic, psychological, physical, and spiritual factors; therefore, it is necessary to plan at different levels to increase their quality of life according to the relevant factors.
