UAE’s first centre specialising in healthcare services for the elderly will be a key component of Dubai Healthcare City (DHC) phase 2, a health and wellness destination located in Al Jaddaf, Dubai.
The DHC has signed an agreement to this effect with VITA, a UAE-based healthcare investment company.
The healthcare facility will offer comprehensive healthcare services for elderly Emiratis and expatriates over the age of 65.
Once completed, the VITA Elderly Care Complex will “become the centre of excellence for geriatric care in Dubai and the UAE”. Its services will include an outpatient geriatric medical centre; advanced nursing home (long-term care); Alzheimer's centre; elderly day care centre; rehabilitation facility; ventilated care centre; home care centre; and home health monitoring.
Abdullah Al Gurg, VITA chairman, said: “Specialised medical care and non-clinical services for the elderly are currently not available at optimum capacity in the UAE".
