Russian Railways CEO Oleg Belozerov takes part in opening of Centre for the Elderly in Moscow Region


The Centre for the Elderly was officially opened on the basis of Central Clinical Hospital No. 4 in the Ruza district of the Moscow Region on 24 January 2018.

The event was attended by Oleg Belozerov, Chief Executive Officer and Chairman of the Board of OJSC Russian Railways, Olga Tkacheva, Chief Geriatrist of Russia’s Ministry of Health, and Yelena Zhidkova, Head of the Central Health Directorate at OJSC Russian Railways.

"Today, railway medicine has all the necessary resources, infrastructure, experience and personnel to share and exchange developments in the field of geriatric care. We are ready to become a reliable partner of the national healthcare system in looking after the older generation," said Oleg Belozerov in his address to the opening ceremony.

The Centre for the Elderly has been established with a view to rehabilitating pensioners who have worked in the railway transport system, as well as members of their families.

Four rehabilitation programmes have been developed in accordance with the degree of activity and independence of elderly people. The programmes are designed for different periods of stay, from a few days to a month or more.

The new institution conducts classes using specialised computer programmes to enable individual cognitive rehabilitation and offers art therapy classes and group psychological training.

Preventive and rehabilitation medicine is now becoming the most important area of ​​medical science and practice in connection with the global trends in increasing life expectancy and professional longevity.

The experience of OJSC Russian Railways in organising medical care for the elderly will serve as a good foundation for the work of the new Centre.

Providing care for railway veterans and pensioners and quality and affordable medical services are important elements of the Holding's social responsibility.
