It was studied how groups contribute to the re-education of aging, using the existential phenomenological method based on the experience with elderly. The elderly reported perceiving society as exclusionary, but they found in the groups the space to redesign their lives, a new vision of aging and the existential confirmation of the companions. The most significant moments were those in which they were protagonists of the action. The groups stand out as privileged spaces for health recovery and exercise of citizenship of the elderly.
