In the context of the following excerpt, what expression should I use? And why?

The husband's role is a fundamental element for the sick wife's well-being and life quality/quality of life.

Note that I gave the phrase a slight nominal twist for copyright concerns, and it should be used in an Academic context.

    "Quality of life" is an idiom with a well-established meaning (and one that is appropriate for the above example). "Life quality" would probably be understood, but might cause some confusion. – Hot Licks Jun 2 '16 at 1:57

You want quality of life

How good or bad a person's life is

Generally, it's the stock term for the happiness and healthiness of an individual. Do note that it is "life" and not "live".
