The article is devoted to research of the features of self-esteem in the elderly. Self-esteem is a personal phenomenon that directly affects the regulation of human behavior and activities. It is an autonomous personality trait, his or her core trait, which is formed with the active participation of a personality and reflects the originality of his or her inner world. Self-esteem is an element of an individual`s self-consciousness, which involves self-assessment, and personality`s assessment of his or her capabilities, qualities, and places among other people. It is an important behavior regulator. As a social phenomenon, it may undergo contradictory changes because it depends on a variety of personal and social factors. In ordinary and familiar situations elderly people`s self-esteem is positive; they focus on their positive qualities. Changes in elderly persons` life often cause difficulties and problems in adapting to a new situation. It negatively affects their attitude towards themselves and their self-assessment. Women, those who live with relatives, those who have higher education, those who work, those who are socially active and have a lot of opportunities to communicate, those who do not feel lonely, those who are satisfied with their health status and life more appreciate their positive qualities in old age.
