he way elderly people adapt in residential centers can play an important role in understanding their well being. Therefore, the present study shows the way elderly individuals can adapt within the residential center, from Arad, during the first six months of institutionalization. Thus, a questionnaire was applied on 30 subjects, institutionalized elderly individuals, aged between 60 and 70 years, both women and men. The purpose of this study was to examine the way elderly individuals adapt to their foreign environment and the way they relate, interact and socialize with the other beneficiaries of the center as well as with the qualified staff of the center (nurses, social workers, doctors, care takers). At the end of this study, it was found that the adaptability of the elderly individuals is difficult to handle, and in some cases the elderly remain in the center obligated by circumstances, while their proper environment is in their own home.
