Population ageing is a global phenomenon of modern society, especially pronounced in Europe, where those aged 65 or over made up almost a fifth of the total population. Multiple geriatric morbidities eventually lead to the functional disability of the older people and that represent not only clinical but also very important public health problem. The existence of cognitive and other mental disorders, which happens usually in the elderly population, can also significantly affect the potential for self-care activities and may be an indication for the institutional care of the elderly. Contrary to the image of ageing marked by illness and disability, modern society is developing a concept of active ageing. The goals of that concept are reducing the risk of disease and disability, preserving functional and cognitive potentials, as well as actively involving the elderly in everyday social activities. To assist this concept, forming an adequate state policy that can meet the demands of a demographically altered social structure and supports active, healthy ageing, is one of the biggest public health challenges in the 21st century.
