Rationale for social importance

The project "Social tourism as a means of active life" has been implemented in the Odintsovo region for several years. My work as the head of the daytime department of the State Budgetary Institution of the Siberian Branch of the Moscow Region "Odintsovo Integrated Center for Social Services for the Population" made it possible, in the process of communicating with people of the older generation and conducting monitoring, to reveal their great interest in travel. Tourism is a very interesting and promising direction for improving the quality of life of the older generation. Today, not every Russian pensioner can afford to travel to interesting historical places in the Moscow region and beyond. And participation in the program will help to realize these dreams, and at the same time get a powerful charge of positive and cheerfulness. Indeed, among retirees there are many people who are energetic and curious, eager for vivid impressions and new discoveries, and tourism for them is one of the best ways to prolong active longevity. Social tourism for elderly citizens and disabled people is a new form of service aimed at maintaining health, organizing proper and useful rest, expanding the circle of communication according to interests, and increasing the efficiency of the body. Tourism creates an environment of full-fledged communication in which a person with problems interacts with different people, establishes social contacts and has the opportunity to fulfill various social roles. Tourism is a unique means of rehabilitation, it makes it possible for older people to fully communicate. Travel, new acquaintances, vivid unforgettable impressions - all this raises the mood and tone of a person, allows him to feel the fullness of life, tunes in a positive mood, gives strength in the fight against ailments. In the Odintsovo complex there is a 9-seater Ford passenger car, on which a cycle of excursion programs is carried out in the Moscow region and other nearby regions. Excursion programs operate in several directions. Educational tourism, which includes visiting historical and cultural attractions. The cultural and local history direction allows you to admire the natural monuments of your native land, to get acquainted with ancient folk songs and dances performed by folk groups. The Orthodox and ethnographic direction offers to get acquainted with the history, architecture, icon painting, craft traditions of Moscow and other regions; gives the opportunity to touch the origins of Orthodox culture, get acquainted with its traditions, values, heritage, take part in religious ceremonies. When planning excursion routes, I try to prepare and during the trip tell my wards about the history of this or that region to which we are heading.

Social tourism for the elderly is a new form of service aimed at preserving health, organizing proper and useful rest, expanding the circle of communication according to interests, and increasing the body's performance.

A social tourism program for the older generation has started in our center "This is a very interesting and promising direction for improving the quality of life of the older generation." Today, not every Russian pensioner can afford to travel to his native land.

“Participation in the program will help make these dreams come true, and at the same time get a powerful charge of positive and cheerfulness.

Tourism has a great impact on the health of the elderly and people with disabilities and is a factor that counteracts hypokinesia, which has a destructive effect on health and psyche. Motor limitations significantly reduce life opportunities, cause depression, despondency, stress, loss of faith in oneself.

Secondly, tourism creates an environment of full-fledged communication in which a person with problems interacts with different people, establishes social contacts and has the opportunity to fulfill various social roles. Tourism eliminates feelings of loss of dignity, inferiority, and integrates the elderly and disabled into society.

The "Social Tourism" project is being implemented in the following types: cultural studies, tourism-recreation, health-improving tourism, ecological tourism, Orthodox tourism.

Tourism creates an opportunity to establish independent and diverse contacts that help to obtain the confident and effective life support that an elderly person needs.

Helping an elderly person is, first of all, to understand and accept his world! Showing maximum attention, love, and most importantly, respect, the specialists of the day care department prove to the clients of the Center every day that life goes on and that there is no need to give up even in the most difficult situations.
