Quality of Seniors’ Life – from Welfare to Help and Support Modern societies are aging. However, a way of perceiving and going through the third age changes along with development. Not only a social environment of elders but also an attitude to life alters. These facts force seniors with their families and state institutions to undertake activities in order to satisfy their fundamental needs. Contemporary social work as well public aid leave a welfare model for such a system of help that make the elders able to enjoy life activity. In this spirit a question of maintaining a hitherto status of the seniors is really worth considering.
