Generally there was no differences of psychological symptoms, although elderly in Depok had slight higher anxiety symptoms (41% vs 25%), while their counterpart in Senen had slightly higiher depression symptoms (52% vs 42%). It is assumed that education and ecomonic aspect played an improtant role in the anxiety existence for the elderly in Depok while " feeling of abandonment" might cause depression symptoms for the elderly in Senen. Among recommendations suggested to aleviate psychological symptoms or proble are skill augmentation, and magnification of family respect. It is also advised that elderly should be prepared to face changes in their life. Enhancement in health services by giving more attention to psychological aspect could be considered.
