Being active is important in every stage of our lives. This especially applies at an old age. In a vital way, it influences happiness and human condition. It is synonymous with life and is the basis of treatment for many diseases. Being active delays the aging process. It is connected with the needs of the elderly: social contacts, personal development, self-esteem. The type of activity depends on a person’s health condition, financial resources and the possessed amount of social skills.
