Data were collected using the World Health Organization Quality of Life (WHOQOL)–BREF questionnaire and another questionnaire including 67 questions according to the PRECEDE model components, which its reliability and validity were approved.  Multi-stage random sampling method was used in two healthcare centers in Kerman and 80 elderly people were selected.

Among components of the PRECEDE model, knowledge (a component of predisposing factors) and enabling factors were the most significant factors predicting quality of life among the participants (R2 =0.46).

Conclusion: According to the results, enabling factors and knowledge (a component of predisposing factors) were identified as the most important factors predicting quality of life. Therefore, more focus on these factors in educational programs for elderly people is recommended.
