Abstract : The number of the elderly population in Yogyakarta Province, Indonesia, is higher compare to other cities in Indonesia. Therefore, supports from various sectors are required, including supports from the government, private sector, and community to improve the quality of life among elderly. An Elderly School Integration in Bina Keluarga Lansia (ESI-BKL) is one of the innovative interventions that have a strategic role in achieving seven dimensions of robust elderly. Respondents in this study are pre-elderly and elderly who are involved in ESI-BKL program for one year. The study design was a quasi-experimental study without control group design. The sampling technique in this study was purposive sampling. Statistical analysis performed in this study was the Wilcoxon Signed-rank test. The results of the study show there are significant differences in the intellectual, social, spiritual, environmental, vocational, and emotional dimensions before and after following ESI-BKL (p-value < 0.05). Moreover, there are no differences in the physical dimension before and after following the ESI-BKL (p-value=0.377). However, the robustness of the elderly can be measured through the indicators of 7-dimension of robust elderly. The measurement results show very significant differences in 5 dimensions, namely intellectual, social, spiritual, environmental, and emotional dimensions. In contrast, there are no significant differences in Physical and Vocational Dimensions.
