Abstract. Population aging is one of the four global demographic “mega trends” along with population growth, international migration and urbanization. Life expectancy is rising, and advances in healthcare, technology and cosmetics are making life more comfortable. The established trend regarding the increase in life expectancy and the aging of the population, as shown by recent studies, has an active and long-term impact on the development of the world and all national communities. This fact requires not only further serious scientific research on the current situation, but also dictates the need to develop additional social policy measures aimed at the older generation, the most relevant in the development of modern society. In modern Russia, the policy of the state singles out “state support for citizens of the older generation” as one of the strategic priority areas. The most active work in relation to this age category began in the early 2000s. It was then that the Federal Program “Older Generation” was developed, which provides for preventive and rehabilitation work, an increase in the volume and quality of medical services, the development of a system of recreational activities and a system for maintaining active longevity. The successful experience of implementing the project at the municipal level allows the authors to suggest that the practice of organizing club spaces is an effective measure of social support for older citizens and is possible for scaling at the federal level.

Keywords: older generation, social policy, Moscow social centers.
