We are witnesses to very dynamic and global changes in demography which result from the fact that societies age and the average lifespan expectancy increases. Experts estimate that by 2020 elderly people will make up to 30% of the global population (World Population Aging, 2015). According to lifespan psychology, late adulthood is a period of substantial changes in the psychological life of human beings. This fact implies the necessity to develop a dedicated psychological approach towards this age group, where the typical factors determining their mental functioning will be investigated and elaborated upon. Wisdom is one of the major predictors of elderly people’s physical and mental health.
