This publication is based on the analysis of speech to bring to light the psychology of the subject aged and the complications susceptible to intervene on this latter. It reconstitutes the experience of the aged persons in situation of marginalization through perceptions, representations, behaviors and attitudes originating from maturational processes which intervenes at the end of life: growing old. It appears that the psychological processes such as fantasist at the end of life and the destinies from the mental faculty determine and model the experience of aged persons. The study reveals a decline in community psycho-affection tradition toward the aged subjects presenting psychological and behavioral troubles in the sub-Saharan Africa towns.
