Abstract

The quality of life is a multidimensional concept and usually expresses a subjective assessment of self-satisfaction with life. At a higher age there are differences in intellectual performance, there is a decrease in the availability of mental activities, and memory deficits. Lifelong learning at third age universities may be an appropriate prevention, but also a protective factor of active aging. The aim of the paper is to identify and interpret partial indicators of the quality of life in relation to the process of lifelong learning, focusing on the specifics of seniority. The theoretical backgrounds are based on the psychological interpretation of the term quality of life and social demographic analysis of the living conditions of seniors in the context of the institutional framework of lifelong learning in the Czech Republic. The research findings are supported by relevant statistical data and illustrated by the outcomes of the survey among education participants.
