Government health agencies concentrate on providing integrated promotion, prevention, treatment, and rehabilitation services to the aged. Various centres have come forward to educate and help ageing people, but all these centres are either focussing on exercises or diet or self-care. There is a lack of holistic module for older adults. This mixed methods approach/method with sequential exploratory design was used to conduct the study on 25 participants. Semi-structured interviews were conducted where six major themes emerged from the data analysis (physical changes, psychological experiences, social & environmental concerns, financial pressure, change in the spirituality, and need for holistic wellness). QoL is entirely a subjective phenomenon and depends solely on an individual?s perception. This study explored all such perceptions and personal experiences using qualitative approach that directed towards the development of a Wellness Module.
