Quality Improvement of Elderly Life in Depok City with Balance Exercise. The quality of life (QOL) of the older adult is affected by various factors such as physical health, psychological health, social relationships and environment. This study aimed to investigate the effect of balance exercise on quality of life among older adults. This quasi-experimental design included two groups; 30 subjects as intervention groups and 30 subjects as control groups.  The sample was taken by multistage random sampling. There were significant improvements in quality of life among older adults (p<0,001). Balance exercise can improve physical health, psychological health, social relationships, and environment. Balance exercise can be utilized as one of the preventive efforts to increase the quality of life among older adults in the community.
