As one grows old, he/she experiences a gradually setting decline in physical, cognitive and social domains, which is also accompanied by characteristic transitions in developmental that such as loss of loved ones, retirement from work and resulting loneliness and adjustment issues. These changes may threaten the resilience and life satisfaction levels among old age persons. The purpose of this research study was to determine the extent of resilience and life satisfaction among young old age group persons. 60 elderly people between the ages of 65 and 75 made up the sample. 30 men and 30 women from Delhi's urban neighbourhoods made up the sample. Older people's resilience and life satisfaction were evaluated using the Resilience Scale created by Dr. Vijaya Lakshmi and Dr. Shruti Narain (2017) and the Life Satisfaction Scale created by Prof. Hardeo Ojha (2005). Findings indicate average resilience levels in elderly (Mean value=107.12), with above average life satisfaction (Mean value=67.65). Life satisfaction and resilience levels were shown to have a weak positive connection (r=0.088), indicating that older adults do not significantly correlate these characteristics. There are no known major gender differences. The study's conclusions may be used to help create an atmosphere that is more supportive of the elderly and create intervention programmes that are successful in raising life satisfaction levels.
