ABSTRACTA descriptive cross-sectional study was carried out that allowed to describe the behavior of the quality of life perceived by the geriatric population of CMF 9 located in the polyclinic 1 Dra. Francisca Rivero Arocha from Manzanillo, from September 2016 to January 2017. The sample consisted of the 165 older adults of the area. The predominance of low quality of life in the population investigated, the quality of life perceived by older adults is related to age and schooling, so that as the age increases the perception of it is worse, while there is a tendency to perceive better quality of life with the increase of schooling and the high perception of health emitted by the population under study is expressed in a homogeneous way by sex, and heterogeneous by age groups, marital status and schooling, are some of the most important results. We consider it is necessary to continue the study of the quality of life in the elderly, with the inclusion of objective quality of life, as an element prior to the realization of an intervention strategy, aimed at improving the quality of life of the target population.
