Russian state social University, 24 Losinoostrovskaya str., p. 1, 107150 Moscow, Russia
Population aging is an objective global process that is characterized by an increase in the absolute and relative number of older people and a decreasing birth rate. The relevance of this study is that at the beginning of 2019, 146.781 million people lived in Russia, including 68.097 million men and 78.684 million women. Children aged 0 to 9 years - more than 18 million, teenagers from 10 to 19 years - more than 14.7 million people, young people from 20 to 29 years - more than 17.3 million people, 40-year-olds (40-49 years) - almost 20.3 million people, Rosstat calculated. There are 19.8 million pre-retirees aged 50-59 in Russia. In Russia, 60-year - olds and older-22%. The increase in the number of elderly citizens leads to the fact that the state should look for new approaches to social services for the elderly in order to create the most comfortable living conditions for them and extend their period of active and independent longevity. The problem of social services for the elderly in the Russian Federation is particularly relevant at the present time, since the liberal reforms in Russia in the 1990s, associated with fundamental changes in the sphere of distribution relations and the transition to the market, radically changed the social conditions of Russian citizens. The current socio-economic situation in the country does not give confidence to the older generation. The increase in the retirement age and the low level of material pension provision add to modern Russian pensioners and people approaching this age category, worries about their social well-being.
