Objective: This article aims to understand the impacts of the Permanent Education (PE) on the Quality of Life (QoL) of the elderly and resource managers in order to reflect on the importance of formal, anniversary - oriented education for the whole society. Methodology: Research with a quantitative-qualitative approach, carried out with the students of the Open University of the Third Age of UnATI / UEA in the year 2016, in which the university was five years or more. Results: Universities Open to the Elderly constitute an essential space for interaction and integration for the elderly, making possible the (re) signification of old age, the aging process and a way to be part of the needs of the elderly in their knowledge needs. The rights of the elderly are socially invisible; however, it has found that education is a determining factor in various dimensions of physical and mental health. The way, the conditions and the ways of life can be modified for the education, to potentiate the cognitive processes that the old man needs to improve his condition of life, without personal, familial and social context. Also, the education of the elderly is social, a constitutional right and a duty of the State. Conclusion: Concludes that Brazil does not prepare to care for its elderly. There is a need to break paradigms of resource managers in the educational area on the importance of projecting into public hands for this age group. It is not enough to aspire for the aging of the population. It is necessary that the community is aware of the reality and that the competent authorities, managers, and planners have access to the paths that lead to a better quality of life for the elderly.
