This study examines the relationship of social participation and self concept with life satisfaction of the older persons. Findings ofthe research indicated that the sociodemographic factors of age (r = -0.29, p<0.01), number of children (r = 0.25, p <0.05) and health status (x2 = 4.61, p<10.01) were significantly related to social participation. The study also indicated that sociodemographic factors of age, (r = -0.24, p <0.011, number of children(r = 0.22, p<10.05) and health status (x2 = 6.42, p <0.01) were significantly related to self-concept. Life satisfaction was significantly related to social participation (r = 0.36,p <0.01), selfconcept (r = 0.58, p <0.01), age (r = 0.21, p <0.05) and health status (x2= 6.87, p <0.01).
