The elderly people account for about 30 per cent of all patients treated in Polish health resorts. On the basis of studies conducted in a sample of six health resorts the author makes an attempt at estimation of frequency with which the elderly people benefit from health-resort services. It appeared that most men and women visiting health resorts were between 50 and 54 years of age. The elderly people were visiting health resorts much more frequently than younger people. Men over 60 years of age benefit from the health services in these resorts twice as of ten as the national average while women’s share is by 40 per cent higher than the national average. Older men tend to visit health resorts more frequent y than women and the difference in frequency of visits grows along with age: frequency of visits in health resorts decreases in the case of people over sixty years of age, and it abruptly declines for people over 70 years of age.'
