Recently in Kiev there was an All-Ukrainian conference "Protection of the Rights and Interests of Elderly People in Ukraine" which was organized by public organization "Care about Aged in Ukraine". Representatives of the Ministry of Labour and social policy of Ukraine, the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Ukraine and heads of departments of local militia inspectors of ten areas of Ukraine took part in it - where the public organization "Care of the Aged" has the branches.

It appeared that activity of public authorities as a whole didn't satisfy 47%, among them both local governments, and social services, and services of social protection, and health care bodies.
At the same time the smallest dissatisfaction (namely 20% of respondents) in relation to employees of militia is expressed by people of advanced years. As participants of conference explain, such situation is caused by that employees of militia respond on addresses which are done by people of advanced years and always listen to their problems.
It is clear that the militia isn't able to solve the majority of questions with which people of respectable age address as they don't enter to their competence. But guards can always listen, advise, redirect a problem to competent authorities
One more stunning figure sounded at conference - 26% of respondents specify that they are absolutely not happy with the relations in a family, namely the address of members of families to people of advanced years.

As we see, there is a considerable circle of problem questions which people of respectable age need to help to solve.
At conference concrete steps concerning cooperation of public organizations with the regional Departments of Internal Affairs were discussed. In particular, representatives of the "Care about Aged in Ukraine" organization wish to develop special methodical materials which would help with communication to employees of militia with people of advanced years (unfortunately together with department of local militia inspectors, to it don't teach in educational institutions).
