Now the whole country is worried about the state of the 85-year-old people’s favorite. A week ago, Leonid Vyacheslavovich, with suspicion of covid, was taken away in an ambulance from the Idyllia nursing home in Moscow. The tests, fortunately, turned out to be negative, but Kuravlev’s whereabouts before hospitalization caused a wide public outcry. Earlier, “StarHit” already wrote how the actor ended up in a boarding house for the elderly: his children, Vasily and Ekaterina, for a long time chose an institution with professional rehabilitation therapists, where their father could be helped to cope with depression and melancholy. Let’s talk in more detail about how the star of Soviet films lived for the last six months.
“We have only two types of placement geometry – Kuravlev was in a one-bed room at the request of his relatives, and there are also“ deuces ”- a little more,” the Idyll press service told StarHit. – At first, he himself did not want to communicate with anyone, he lay motionless. Specialists gave him massages and exercises in the room, psychologists came and talked, as the elderly have difficulty adapting, employees brought food directly to the bed – all this is a standard proven technology. Then they began to take them out on a gurney for walks. And later Leonid Vyacheslavovich began to publish himself! He was engaged in physiotherapy exercises, plus on simulators – at his age it is a real feat. “
The People’s Artist did not make any close friends in the nursing home, but he communicated with all the guests in about the same way. “He was very fond of his nannies, who looked after him. Three times a day they have a round – checking the temperature, saturation, pressure, someone is helped to change clothes, wash. And Kuravlev all the time complimented the girls, giggled with them. He retained an excellent sense of humor, which also says a lot, ”says the representative of the boarding house.
Leonid Vyacheslavovich was often visited by relatives, he was always especially happy with their visits. “The son and daughter-in-law came and put his own elegant Christmas tree for the New Year,” continues the employee of the institution. – Nobody left him – this is some kind of offensive nonsense. There were grandchildren, and even the parents of the daughter-in-law – they all communicate closely within the family. They arranged a real holiday with their appearance. My daughter came a little less often, but also regularly. The children did not make any plans regarding the duration of their father’s stay here. They just wanted him to get a little better. “

On December 31, Idyll hosted a festive evening with Santa Claus – all grandmothers and grandfathers took part in it: they were presented with gifts, treated with sweets and tangerines. At that moment on TV, everyone’s favorite Soviet films were shown, including “Ivan Vasilyevich”, in which our hero played the main role almost 50 years ago. “In principle, Kuravlev did not like to watch TV, all these films with his participation,” they say in the boarding house. – But, probably, many greats are so – it’s hard to see yourself young and handsome.
