Abstract
The current situation of a today’s person life presupposes digital technologies integration into all spheres of life activities. And for many representatives of the elder generation, the adaptation to these new for it conditions becomes a significant problem. The study objective is the determination of Slovak and Russian pensioners social intensity (saturation) level and revelation of the main directions of their psychologic-pedagogical assistance in the digital epoch. 153 interrogated respondents from Slovakia (average age of 72±8,3 years old) and 93 respondents from Russia (average age of 71±5,4 years old) took part in the study. “The Pensioner Social Saturation Questionary” (Búgelová, 2010) was used for the collection of data. The results have shown, that the Russian pensioners feel the higher rate of social intensity, than the Slovak ones. Herewith, the gender differences of the social intensity level were revealed only for the Russian pensioners. In Russia male pensioners are more socially saturated, than the female pensioners. Herewith, in both selections, notwithstanding the gender, the low level of social saturation was revealed. The common critical point of emotional sufferings of the pensioners of both nationalities are the risk of social isolation, feeling of loneliness and idleness for other people. Almost 90% of all pensioners worry, that their existence is burdensome for their loved ones. The article deposes attention emphasis from the description of typical gerontological problematics to the everyday life situations, which the pensioners live through, and which bring psychological and social discomfort in their everyday routine. Besides, the publication turns attention to the current directions of psychologic-pedagogical assistance on the basis of studying psychological (emotional) aspects of the problem of pensioner social saturation – the publication gives a list of situations, causing the highest emotional response of the pensioners, and provides the analysis in the context of national selections of the respondents.
