Abstract: The author focuses her deliberations around the problem of growing old with respect to both an individual and Polish society as a whole. She ponders over the specificity of old age in the individual and social dimensions. In the individual dimension, she depicts the differences between men and women related to life expectancy. She also differentiates between positive and pathological old age trying to find the reasons for both. In response to the above, she calls for the necessary upbringing and preparation for old age not only in the case of current elders but also in the case of elders‑to‑be. This necessity is justified on the grounds of low life quality in the third age as well as a distinctly low status of old age noticeable in the culture and society. The author believes that education is the right method of social revalidation in the case of both an aging society and an aging individual as well as the right tool serving to bring up and prepare people to be old. Education, as she puts it, addressed to current elders and elders‑to‑be, but also education about old age, which is supposed to help people become familiar with and understand the unique situation and needs of third‑age persons.
