The article is devoted to the review and solution of the research goal: “Socio-cultural ties of elderly people as a scientific problem”. On the way to finding a solution to the goal, the following tasks were formulated: the study of the theoretical aspects of the socio-cultural ties of elderly people by means of some information technologies, the presentation of the characteristics of the elderly as an object of socio-cultural activity, the analysis of the specifics of the socio-cultural ties of elderly people. The analysis of the sources allows the authors to assert that socio-cultural tools should help elderly people to “positivize” their age status, while shifting the focus of attention to the transfer of life experience and further disclosure of creative potential. For this category of citizens, an active socio-cultural position becomes a way of maintaining socio-cultural ties and spiritual rehabilitation of the past, the importance of which becomes crucial in the considered period of age periodization. In this regard, there is a growing need in society to help people of the third age to expand socio-cultural ties, the state and society are developing programs in this area and are looking for new technologies for their implementation. The paper analyzes some problems of the elderly, as well as resocialization in the field of socio-cultural activities. The fundamental conditions of socio–cultural informatization for elderly people are described, under which intergenerational communication and socio-cultural ties are preserved, which makes the accumulated life experience of this category of citizens broadcast to an online audience, where they feel the need and necessity to transfer knowledge and traditions. The authors believe that some information technologies adapted to the specific needs of elderly people should be focused on socio-cultural interaction, which will help to consolidate an active life position.
