Abstract: This study investigates the relationship between stress, well-being and health in older adults compared to younger adults. This can help inform future interventions aiming to improve health in older adults. Data from 200 undergraduates and 84 older adults were analysed to assess the mediating and moderating role of well-being in the relationship between stress and perceived health in older adults. Age group was also analysed as a moderating factor. Age group significantly moderated the relationship between stress and well-being and stress and health, in both cases the association was weaker in the older adults. Mental well-being was a significant moderator in the relationship between perceived stress and perceived health in older adults, compared to the mediating role in the young. Higher well-being may serve as a protective factor in the link between stress and health in older adults.
