One of the most important challenges of Europe, North America and Eastern Asia are the processes associated with the ageing (greying) population. The share of older people in Poland increased from 10.1% in 1990 to 14.4% in 2013, while in Europe the share of older people increased from 13.9 to 18.2% between 1990 and 1992. Globally, the number of older people is expected to more than double, from 841 million people in 2013 to more than two billion in 2050. Processes associated with the ageing population will result in a steady increase of interest in long-term care services, such us residential care. On the other hand, the increasing demand for services of residential care will be caused by the fact that globally only 40% of older people live independently. The growing demand for residential care services will be accompanied by a growing interest in the quality and innovativeness improvement. From the perspective of the development corporate social responsibility of such units, the involvement of residents seems to be crucial. This paper presents the survey research results conducted among 169 residential care units in Poland. The scientific purpose of the article is principally to examine the existing relations between two variables: staff engagement (SE) and residents’ engagement (RE) in residential care units in Poland. For this purpose, the multiple regression analysis was used.
