Abstract: 

Using Flood’s Successful Aging theory incorporated the interrelatedness of a sociocultural and biosocial model of successful aging. A correlational design was used to quantify successful aging and explain the relationships that exist between successful aging and global self-esteem and sexual quality-of-life of community-based post-menopausal women.

A non-random sample of ninety-nine post menopausal women took self administered questionnaires which included demographics, The Successful Aging Inventory, The Rosenberg Self-Esteem Scale and Sexual Quality-of-life instruments.  A significant correlation between successful aging and global self-esteem and sexual quality-of-life was noted. Successful aging and meaning in life does exist in post-menopausal women.
