The first Center for Active Aging will appear in Primorye. The leisure center for pensioners will be located in the building of the former Dzerzhinsky club in Vladivostok at 12 Fokina street.

The project is being implemented as part of the state program "Social support for the population of Primorsky Krai for 2020-2027". As the Minister of Labor and Social Policy of the region Svetlana Krasitskaya said at a meeting of the expert group of the regional project "Older Generation", the building, which had previously housed the center of cultural and educational work among the employees of the Vladivostok Ministry of Internal Affairs, belongs to the monuments of architecture and history. The minister noted that by the order of the regional ministry of property and land relations dated August 31, the building was accepted into the balance of the region and assigned to the Ministry of Labor for operational management.

Svetlana Krasitskaya stressed that the pensioners themselves will be involved in the discussion of the directions - a survey will be conducted for them. Physical education, dancing, health groups, training seminars on safety, computer literacy, health lectures with the involvement of health professionals, trainings under the guidance of psychologists, hobby clubs - the new center plans to organize everything that is interesting to older people.

In addition, the institution can become a real center for the development of Silver Volunteering. As noted by a member of the expert group, the head of the NPO "Rodnye Lyudi" Natalya Kokoreva, repair work is already underway, the building is ready to open.

“We hope to make money soon. In the future, similar centers will be opened in other municipalities, ”said Natalya Kokoreva.

According to her, the organization and the regional authorities have been cooperating for a long time in addressing the issues of active longevity of the residents of Primorye, including in the popularization of volunteerism among pensioners. Natalya Kokoreva believes that the possibility of NGO activities based on government organizations will make this work more effective.

The ministry expects that the Center for Active Aging will receive its first visitors in 2024.
