Abstract: 

The quantitative survey was performed in the X social care home. Its purpose was to find out the opinions of its residents in relation to the influence of economic recession on the quality of their life. Two indicators were studied in order to fulfil the task: the living conditions in the social care home and the quality of social service. 80 residents of the X social care house took part in the survey. They were expected to answer 14 questions. The results showed that residents were unhappy to share the room with other people; during the recession the number of journeys, events, travels and tours has declined; the funding aimed at purchasing pharmaceuticals, transportation and some food products was reduced.
