This paper examines organizational support to the long-term care system which consists of the regulatory, infrastructural, financial, staffing, methodological and information technology support. The authors have analyzed the data provided by the Federal State Statistics Service of the Russian Federation reflecting the count of pensioners receiving the old-age pensions and pension average size, as well as the current state of social service organizations in the Russian Federation. The analysis results were used to validate a necessity to introduce the system of long-term care for senior citizens and people with disabilities. It was determined that it is possible to create infrastructure and financial support to enable functioning of this system by implementing the public-private partnership projects. The authors proposed measures for efficient implementation and functioning of the long-term care system in the Russian Federation. The undertaken analysis brought us to the conclusion that in the Russian Federation there is a need to take certain measures aimed at: development of social infrastructure facilities for the disabled and senior citizens; construction of new modern infrastructure; active engagement of socially committed non-profit organizations for the provision of social and medical services included in the long-term care for senior citizens.
