The purposes of this collaborative research were to assess the psychological well-being of Thai elderly and to investigate the difference of the psychological well-being among selected demographic variables: gender, marital status, and current work; economic and social variables: financial status, number of children, group and social activities; and health. The psychological well-being composed of 5 dimensions: harmony, calm and acceptance, interdependence, respect, and enjoyment. The sample of the elderly was 477 men and women aged 60 and over. The interview following the questionnaire was used. The reliability of the instrument after testing for content validity, using Cronbach’s alpha coefficient, was .80. The statistics used for data analysis included the percentage, mean, standard deviation, t-test, and analysis of variance. The results indicated high level of psychological well-being on each of 5 dimensions: harmony, interdependence, respect, enjoyment, and calm and acceptance. Psychological well-being significantly differed by selected variables except current work. Psychological well-being differed by health and gender, health and social activities. The futuristic study and implication for nursing are discussed in relation to the development of the measures of well-being and the care for the aged.
