Elderly people will receive new support measures in Primorye
In Primorsky Krai, in 2020, several laws will be developed to support older people. The regional authorities plan to introduce benefits for people traveling on public transport for older people, pay them vouchers to the sanatorium, and provide an additional payment for their pension.
According to the press service of the regional administration, the Governor of Primorye, Oleg Kozhemyako, called for more active involvement of volunteers to help older people. He also proposed the creation of disabled people care teams.
In October, regional authorities announced that they would introduce new measures of social support in Primorye. On preferential payments unemployed residents awarded with the “Honorary Citizen of Primorsky Territory” and “Honorary Resident of Primorsky Territory” signs will be able to count. The benefit will be available only to men over 60 years and women over 55 years.
