The growing trend of aging populations in Iran associated with physical and mental disorders strengthen the necessity of life quality determination of this stratum. The life quality of the elderly in urban areas is influenced by a variety of factors, including environmental and social conditions. Therefore, all areas of Tehran metropolitan do not have the same conditions for an elderly life. For this purpose, the study examined the status of Tehran metropolitan areas based on indicators of the elderly life. The research method is descriptive-analytical and the main variables are socio-cultural indicators, recreational index, health and transportation issues. Data analysis using Excel and GIS software has also been implemented for the TOPSIS model to rank 22 areas. The results of this research are presented in the ranking of 22 areas of Tehran in 5 spectra (perfectly suitable, appropriate, moderate, inappropriate, and completely inappropriate). The results of the Topsis technique show that Zone 2 ranked the first suitable area for the elderly life, and the 17th region has the last level among districts of Tehran. The results of this study showed that monitoring the situation of the elderly is noticeable, especially among elderly people who live in the east (regions 8 and 13) and south of Tehran (regions 10, 17 and 19).
