The presentation focuses to evaluate the reality of the Moldavian society in the context of the aging population in light of the multidimensional indicators of the Active Aging Index for 2016-2020. Based on the comprehensive analysis there are highlighted the challenges that the old people in Moldova are facing. On the one hand, low standard of living, poverty, limited access and quality of health services, restricted physical security, etc., on the other hand, a social perception full of stereotypes and behaviorally marked by discriminatory elements towards the old people. Through reasoned findings on the depth of the impact of demographic aging in the Republic of Moldova, the presentation raises awareness of the effort needed to adjust social and institutional components to ensure active, healthy, and safe aging for the country's population.
