ABSTRACT

Stable growth of the elderly age group is observed in the population of circumpolar areas of Russia. In northern conditions chronic pathology facilitates activity restriction development, changing the habitual lifestyle. Ageing process involves functional constraints of physical and mental activities, difficulties in doing everyday work. Aging changes of the nervous and respiratory systems are more characteristic of aged men and women living in the nursing home system of Russian urban circumpolar area. These changes are caused by worse psychological state, hypokinesia so there is a need in improving approaches in medical and social care services, in particular, introducing activating technologies and the micro-environment enhancement.
