This study presents a multiple number of basic concepts and categories of the issue research. The social and psychological aspect of rehabilitation aims to use all remaining resources of an individual.

The need to develop and implement specific approaches, forms and methods of social work with older people is determined by the following factors: an increase of older people proportion in the population, the change of an old person social status, the termination or restriction of employment, the transformation of values, lifestyle and communication and the emergence of various problems in social, domestic and psychological adaptation to new conditions. Within the implementation of a pilot- experimental a variety of complex research techniques was used to ensure the reliability of the results.
