Background: The treatment and care of the elderly requires observing its appropriateness, which is conceivable through the assessment of HRQoL. Methods: The motivation behind this review was to examine the HRQoL of more established adults in a two-nation research setting, including the Physical Component Synthesis (PCS) and Mental Component Synthesis (MCS) scores. Our current research was conducted at Jinnah Hospital, Lahore from October 2018 to September 2019. Methods: A social crossover study was conducted with seniors in a group of 99 ambulatory patients over 60 years of age. Patients were recruited from Poland (N = 50) and Turkey (N = 49). Information was collected from March to September 2013. To assess the patient's personal satisfaction, we used the SF-36v2® (Short Form Health Survey) in the one-week intensive examination structure, which provides a picture of the state of well-being in the last week. Results: Respondents' normal time was 71.06. Personal satisfaction in all circles was below the standard set by the SF-36 engineers. A notable distinction was observed for physical work, for example, the Polish patient gathering beat the Turkish patient gathering (p = 0.006). In both cases, the highest score was observed in the measure of essentiality and the lowest in the measure of enthusiasm for the work. In the Polish group of patients, physical and mental work was worse due to age, while in the Turkish group, PCS and MCS were comparable, but PCS for 75 years and older was higher than in the youngest group. All scores by sexual orientation were below the norms for both groups, and the risk of sadness among individuals was equally high. Conclusion: Despite the cultural and social differences our research shows that similar emotional problems in everyday social functioning and a high risk of developing depression occurred among both groups.
