The purpose of this study was to explore the effects of spirituality on quality of life (QOL) in older adults when age, gender, social support, and health status are controlled. A secondary analysis of data was conducted using results from a cross-sectional survey of older adults. Data were available from a convenience sample of 426 people living in British Columbia, Canada, who volunteered to complete the questionnaire. Instruments included the WHOQOL-100 and a demographic data sheet. The results show spirituality was not a significant factor contributing to QOL in this sample, and that the strongest predictors of overall QOL were social support and health satisfaction. Given difficulties in measuring spirituality and homogeneity of the sample, further research is warranted.
