Aging well is one of the key issues of modern gerontopsychology, health and environmental psychology. In ecological psychology, late adulthood is considered as the most sensitive to the physical and organizational environmental settings stage in human life due to exhausted physical and social resources in the elderly and increasing environmental demands (Environmental press–competence model). The article is devoted to the modern researches of two types of aging – aging in place and institutional care, in terms of its beneficial effects on psychological health and quality of life of elderly people.
