Early in 2020, the term YOLD, namely “Young Old”, is an elder between the ages of 65 and 75 who still has the characteristics of a young person. Declining conditions in some aspects need to be adjusted by elders to avoid feeling useless, excluded, lonely or prone to disease. However, if they have a positive outlook and realize that their experiences and wisdom can be role models for the next generation, they can have a good quality of life. Quality of life is an individual’s view of their position in life, in their culture or value system, related to expectations, interests, and achievements. This study aims to describe the quality of life of YOLD joining elderly clubs in Jakarta. The YOLD measuring instrument used is the Indonesian version of the WHOQOL-BREF which is a Likert scale consisting of 26 items. The number of participants in this study were 66 elders. The results of this study indicate that the elders’ quality of life has differences in terms of the need for assistance and hope. Elders who feel they have enough activities have a higher quality of life than elders who want to have more activities.
