On the eve of the city's birthday, the Generation Foundation presented the Gubkinsky Complex Center for Social Services to the population with a wonderful gift: medical and sports equipment to strengthen the health of people of “silver” age.
The ability to stay energetic for a long time, play sports and creativity, communicate, help others and get support themselves are simple joys that are often needed by the older generation. And the Gubkinsky pensioners have their own special "place of attraction" in the city, where they find these joys – the Complex Center for Social Services for the Population. Over the years, the elderly and disabled have received various, including medical support from the institution. On the basis of the center, a whole day care department has been organized, where older residents with various diseases undergo rehabilitation.
The recovery course for each person is individual, we receive about 30 residents per month, 360 or even a little more per year, since we do not refuse help to anyone, '' explained the head of the department, Sergei Ivanov. – Due to the specifics, we do not directly treat, but we can support and strengthen the body's strength so that the disease does not progress. For this, a variety of types of assistance are organized – medical, psychological and socio-cultural. Moreover, it is very important not only to carry out, for example, a cycle of physiotherapy, but to correctly tune a person's thoughts and not let him go headlong into his "sore", because then it will be more difficult to cope with it. Therefore, we also involve everyone in active sports and creative activities.
In order for the improvement of Gubkin's older generation to be more effective, new highly effective equipment has recently appeared in the day care department of the center – a massage chair, a unique exercise bike and an ultrasound treatment device. Such a useful gift to the institution was presented by an old good friend – the Generation Foundation.

This equipment is a real help for us, says Sergey Mikhailovich. – The chair allows for a comprehensive full body massage, it is easy to change the intensity and duration of the procedure. And all this with complete relaxation and comfort. An exercise bike is also not easy: it is designed so that not only the lower, but also the upper body is actively involved in the movement, legs, arms and back are strengthened at the same time. And, of course, the ultrasound treatment apparatus is indispensable for combating ailments of the joints and spine. In addition, the new technology will help optimize the work of our specialists, which means that we will provide assistance even faster, better and more efficiently. Many thanks to the staff of the fund and its head Andrey Vladimirovich Skoch for a wonderful present!
The transfer of new equipment took place on September 10.
Our pensioners, veterans are the most respected people who, through their work, made the Belgorod region a prosperous, fertile land. And now, when they so need care, it is very important to provide them with support, especially in terms of health. For the Generation Foundation, the topic of medicine is one of the most important. So, 1 billion rubles was allocated to equip state medical institutions in the region to provide affordable quality care to residents of the territory. In our region, about 500 thousand people are on pensions, in the Gubkinsky urban district, elderly people make up a third of the population. And we, of course, try to support them. As for the complex center of social services, this is a unique institution of Gubkin, which allows representatives of the older generation to maintain not only health, but also good spirits, energy and creativity. We consider this a good thing and try to help him in everything!

The Generation Foundation helps us to keep the elderly people of Gubkin active. For example, a little less than a year ago, on the basis of the same center, thanks to the foundation, a wonderful leisure area appeared, where older people can engage in creativity – sing, dance, perform performances. This year, the assistance is aimed at improving the health of pensioners, in connection with which new high-tech equipment has appeared. And we are confident that our interaction with the fund for the benefit of the residents will continue, plans for future achievements have already been outlined. We love Generation very much and say thank you to Andrei Vladimirovich Skoch for the fact that his many good deeds are aimed, among other things, at caring for people of the “silver” age.
