ZHUKOVSKY HALL, October 15 12:30 — 13:45
Retiring is one of the most life-changing and critical periods in the life of any elderly person. This unfamiliar situation forces one to reassess their values, attitude towards themselves and others, and search for new paths to self-realization. For many elderly people, this process is long, painstaking, emotionally straining, and accompanied by passivity, inability to find new activities, friends, and partners or to get a fresh perspective on their life and the surrounding world. Hence, it is essential to ensure that elderly people continue to lead an active lifestyle by educating them, and this remains one of many topical issues for any government.
