Elderly people in the UAE have a high social status as an important part of the social fabric. Thus, the local authorities are exerting their efforts to provide them with the necessary support through the establishment of a number of specialized centres that provide full care programs, as well as the provision of social security and government provided pension in addition to many other services.
The Ministry of Community Development has developed many services covering all aspects concerning the elderly’s quality of life, including:
