Improving the quality of life of seniors

T + T – normal size

Greetings of love and appreciation to all government agencies that support the social development system in the UAE, with our great pride in all activities, initiatives and achievements that support the quality of life of seniors in the country and sustainability to serve all segments of society.

We notice this clearly in their valuable contributions in all areas of social and health development and future plans to improve the quality of services for all segments of society, especially for seniors, for example the efforts of the esteemed Ministry of Community Development in launching the “Guideline for the Care of Seniors during the Spread of Epidemics”, in collaboration with the Federal Corporation For young people, and the “We welcome you” initiative to strengthen social cohesion with seniors.

This complements the Family Development Foundation’s “digital integration service for the elderly” initiative, by qualifying them cognitively and digitally and enabling them to use social media, surf the web and interact with digital systems to achieve equal keep up with society and generations as a means of helping them communicate with family and friends, as an appreciation for this category, and a translation of the government’s guidelines to improve the quality of life of seniors, to support the UAE vision 2021 and achieve the centennial goals 2071.

The UAE is one of the leading countries in its strategic vision on care and development services for seniors, which has been translated into an independent strategy for them, which has been approved, including 4 strategic objectives, 7 main axes and 26 innovative initiatives and projects are being implemented, while all institutions replace the name elderly or elderly. Seniors, in accordance with the guidelines of the rational government, which has adopted this name, in appreciation of their great role and status, in addition to health and preventive care for seniors and the provision of all medical support and assistance, as statistics indicate an increase of seniors’ longevity thanks to the health care provided and quality community services.

I do not hide that I look forward to documenting these efforts, as they are regarded as one of the best practices for improving the quality of life of seniors, by teaching and providing them electronically with the sustainability of development and evaluation in the foreseen social and health services and the sustainability of public opinion polls, with the aim of measuring satisfaction with the services provided, and strengthening strategic partnerships with academic and medical institutions specializing in developing cognitive rehabilitation programs and promoting mental health, in addition to providing quality care in various social, health, psychological and recreational aspects, support volunteering, support the efforts of public interest associations to support seniors, as the care and care of seniors is a duty on every member of the community.
