This exploratory research study attempted to describe the relationship between successful aging and its relationship to older adults' spirituality, cognitive status, social engagement, physical health, functional ability, and adaptation skills. A non-probability, convenience sample consisting of 29 older adults from the Anaheim Senior Center and Vista Alicante Senior Apartments were asked to complete a semi-structured questionnaire and a set of standardized instruments. Several of the respondents reported good health and less intake of medication. A statistical significant difference was found between male and female in their spirituality. Correlations were found between resilience and spirituality scale and subscales: self-efficacy and life-scheme, indicating higher resiliency among older adults who were successfully aging older adults.
