Description: The Wellbeing Evaluation Scale (WES) is a brief, self-report measure designed to provide a valid and reliable measure of wellbeing in older people (55+). There are two forms of the WES – the full 47-item form [WES Long Form (WES-LF)] or a short 19-item form [WES Short Form (WES-SF)]. They can be used as wellbeing screening tools or to provide an overall wellbeing score.

The 47-item Long Form provides a measure of subjective, behavioural, and contextual dimensions of wellbeing across 6 structural properties of wellbeing: Integrity of self, integrity of others, belonging, agency, enrichment, and security. Responses are collated and provide a profile or wellbeing across all 6 domains in addition to population percentages. The 19-item Short Form provides an average wellbeing score and population percentages.
