Introduction: the last twenty years marked important development in research on quality of life. is there quality to life? There are two answers. quality of life is an individual category for every person. Individual assessment includes a variety of characteristics that can describe individual vision on life quality. Quality of life involves a vast array of physical and psychological factors, and/or limitations that describe functional ability of an individual as well as the level of satisfaction as a result.
