Abstract: Aging is a life stage that remains hardly ever studied and, consequently, unknown if compared to other human development phases. This research investigates the relation between anxiety, depression and hopelessness among elderly groups. 79 elderly people, from three different units, such as a 'third-age-center', a center of distribution of medicine, and a nursing home, took part in the study. The material used in the study was a questionnaire for data characterization, as well as, Beck's scales that was used to evaluate anxiety, depression and hopelessness. The results indicated a significant association between anxiety, depression and hopeless in elderly people. The elderly group living in a nursing home showed more incidence of anxiety, depression and hopelessness symptoms when compared to the two others groups.
