In this study, it was aimed to determine the successful aging levels of the elderly, the acceptance and use of technology behavior, the effect of technology acceptance and use behaviors on successful aging, and to make recommendations to families, institutions and organizations according to the results of the research. The research was carried out with 912 elderly individuals who were 60 years and older registered to the Turkish Retirees Association Adana Branch living in Adana province. As the aim of the study was to explore the theoretical relationship, the method of Partial Least Squares structural equation model path analysis was used. According to the findings of the research, performance expectancy, hedonic motivation, facilitating conditions and habit of the subcomponents of the technology acceptance model predicted significantly behavior intention. Another sub-component of the technology acceptance model was the habit of predicting technology use behavior significantly. The results of the research showed that “performance expectancy” and “facilitating conditions” which were the sub-components of the technology acceptance model, predicted “struggle against difficulties” that was the sub-component of successful aging. According to another finding, performance expectancy and social influence, which were the sub-component of the technology acceptance model, significantly predicted a healthy lifestyle, which was the subcomponent of successful aging.
