    Abstract. Despite the fact that the main economic and demographic negative contribution to the death rate from injuries is caused by cases among the able-bodied population, a huge social role is played by mortality among the elderly and senile age. For all the major causes of death from injuries, with the exception of death in road accidents and due to injuries with sharp objects, where the maximum rates are recorded for men of working age, the leading age groups are65 years or more, and peak values occur at the age of 80 years or more.The problem of high mortality among seniors is interdepartmental in nature; to solve this problem, it is necessary to involve not only health authorities, but, above all, social services. For persons of old age, an organization of an accessible environment is necessary, not only at public and private facilities, but also at the place of residence.
