- Indonesia’s current population structure is an old population structure because the percentage of the elderly exceed 7% of the total population. This has an impact on increasing the burden of productive age to meet the needs of the elderly, the risk of neglected elderly, and the declining quality of life and welfare of the elderly. The govern-ment has provided a nursing home as an alternative to protect the elderly, but the implementation is not optimal. This study aims to improve the quality of life and well-being of the elderly. This study uses quali-tative research methods in the elderly and nursing home management. The results of the survey found three things that have not been optimal to improve the quality of life and well-being of the elderly at the insti-tution, namely the institutional program, facilities and infrastructure, and the complementary resource recruitment system that is not following the needs of the elderly. Conclusion research on the quality and welfare of the elderly in institutions is still limited and has not been supported by comprehensive govern-ment policies. Therefore, a policy change is needed to support the improvement of the quality of life and welfare of the elderly at the institution.
