Abstract: 

Introduction: Investigating problems of the elderly, as they age is very important, since any chronic disease can affect their quality of life. Diabetes is one of the diseases that affects the physical, mental and social aspects of such individuals.
Materials and Methods: This descriptiveanalytical study was conducted on elderly diabetic residents of the Kahrizak Geriatric Nursing Home during 2011. A total of 93 individuals, selected randomly, completed demographic and the World Health Organization quality of life questionnaires. Data were analyzed by SPSS16 software, using t-test and ANOVA. Results: In this study, 34 men and 59 women, average age 74.2±8 years, were evaluated in different domains of quality of life. Based on data analysis, men earned higher scores in the physical domain (P=0.017). Social domain had a significant (P=0.009) relationship with marital status and married individuals had higher scores. There was a significant correlation between the income and quality of life in the mental domain (P=0.035), but no significant relationship was found between educational status and quality of life.
Conclusion: The increasing rate of elderly diabetic populations among geriatrics groups, indicates the urgent need for strategic planning of interventions aimed at improving of environmental, social, physical and mental status of these age groups.
