The article is an attempt to highlight the value of the educational activities for the quality of human life and educational practices of social workers in gerontology. The article introduces the research results obtained from the focus group. 10 social workers with the experience of organizing educational activities in social care institutions for older people participated in the research. Organising of social events for social workers means implementation of leisure, culture, art related activities through utilizing inner resources of the organisation and by outsourcing of educational activities. Organizing educational activities for social workers is a creative process. It offers learning experience and, while dealing with limitations of resources, allows for collaboration with organisations that are involved in cultural and art activities.
