Abstract. Nowadays there is a problem — the aging of the nation. For 2018, the percentage of the ratio of senior citizens to the total population is 21.5%. It is believed that one in five residents is elderly. Taking into account these statistics, the question arises of how to help older people adapt in modern society and not lose an active position. Indeed, with the aging process comes many difficulties due to internal changes that somehow affect the relationship of older people with the environment, which leads to changes in their perception of other people and themselves.
