Whereas, it was found to be R=.359 and R Square Change was 12% which represent the contribution (Impact) of predictor variable on Well-being among Old age people. The Correlation was computed between Spirituality and Different dimensions of Well-being i.e. Physical, Mental, Social, Emotional and Spiritual and it was found to be .542, .592, .524, .527 and .451 respectively.
