While in some areas the old people still remain highly active, for example, in politics, in general, are increasingly older people are retiring with the end of the most productive period of life, leading to problems of psychological adaptation to the new conditions. The first problems arise due to the reduced influence of old people, feeling their own lack of demand and the availability of a considerable amount of free time. In addition, for a large number of people in old age are becoming more acute financial problems, although in many cases these problems lie in the society.
Due to the presence of free time, family relationships increasingly tend to be the focus of the elderly. However, due to changes in family structure in developed countries,

For example, the retirement age varies between countries, ranging from 55 to 70 years. First of all, this difference is explained by differences in life expectancy and disability of the elderly. In addition, as mentioned above, there are significant differences between industrial and traditional agricultural society. Whereas in the first value of elderly people slightly, in the last old age it is a sign of wisdom, and old people have a great impact on society. After all this explanations these theories and factors we can tell that more important "successful aging," which determines how best to proceed should be aging, using modern achievements in medicine and gerontology. The concept of "successful aging" as a combination of the following factors that must accompany aging:
1. Low probability of disease or disability.2. High capability of learning and physical activity.
3. Active participation in community life. These objectives can be achieved both by society and the well-known thanks to the efforts of older people to study and support of social relationships, especially with younger people

For example, the life expectancy is increased to 50% by caloric restriction in the diet, which generally remains healthy, many animals, including some mammals (rodents). The influence of this factor on the life expectancy of humans and other primates has not yet been found, the known data are still insufficient, and research is ongoing. Others rely on the rejuvenation of the tissues using stem cell replacement organs (artificial organs or organs grown for this purpose, e.g., by cloning) or chemical and other methods (antioxidants, hormonal therapy), which would have an impact on the molecular repair of body cells . However, at present considerable success still has not been reached and it is unknown when, after years or decades, there will be substantial progress in this industry. So our successful aging is our work during whole life. Right,good nutrition, good sleep ( enough hours a day) and active movement every day (moderate physical exercise). Also, we need to remember the psychology of aging. The most notable changes in the brain during aging are to worsening short-term memory and increase the reaction time. Both of these factors limit the opportunities for a normal existence in society and are the subject of many studies. However, if an elderly person gets more time to deal with a particular problem, which does not require large amounts of
