Elder people will be involved in the society and find their role (as a trainer or trainee), in this way, they can preserve their health longer.
Elder people will be able to use modern ICT devices in their life, thus, they can keep contact with other people easier, administration will be simplified for them and they can access more information.
Their increased intellectual capacity can be used by the local community and thus, the social capital will strengthen.
The number of the social services (special collective, voluntary, public educational and training services) will increase which is an important characteristic of the welfare society.
