Who are Senior Emiratis?
Individuals who are 60 years of age or over are seniors.
Under the National Policy for Senior Emiratis, UAE elderly will be referred to as ‘Senior Emiratis’ in recognition of their experience, giving, dedication and sincerity to UAE.
The UAE has retirement homes for the seniors/elderly. These are also called elderly care centres. They are under the responsibility of Ministry of Community Development. These centres provide primary health care, social, psychological and physical therapy for the Senior Emiratis in a nursing home in Ajman. Register
