Summary/Abstract: Demographic research shows that modern societies are aging, and Poland is also among the countries referred to as demographically old. Therefore, new tasks appear before the young generation to achieve a good quality of life in old age and care for seniors from the closest environment. Bearing in mind the preparation for changes related to the retirement period, shaping friendly attitudes towards seniors and the ability to integrate between generations, the author emphasizes the essence of education towards old age in general education. She describes the most important issues related to old age, aging and demographic changes in Poland, analyzes content related to preparation for old age implemented at school, also emphasizes the role of the teacher in shaping the attitudes of the youth toward the elderly, old age and the inclusion with seniors. Relying on the empirical research, the author presents the place of education towards old age in general education and its effects, i.e. the attitudes of the surveyed students towards old age and seniors.
