It was founded in 2009. Civil, government and private efforts have been united to support the idea of establishing the Home to serve the elderly during the day. The Home is managed by Um Al-Hassam Charity’s Board of Trustees and is technically supported by the Ministry.

 

Objectives:

  1. Provide care and housing for the elderly who have no supporters or whose families are not able to take care of them. The offered service involves day care, intermittent residence interchanged between the Home and family, or permanent residence at the Home according to its capacity.
  2. Provide health, social and living care for residents.
  3. Invest the elderly people’s leisure time, provide them with the opportunity to exercise any activity consistent with their experiences and preferences, and train those who are able among them on some of the skills that have a positive impact on them.
  4. Strengthen the relationship between the elderly people and their family members and deepen their social interaction with their surroundings, ensuring psychological and social adaptation.
  5. Assist the elderly people residing at the Home and who have no supporters by fulfilling some of their needs that they find difficult to perform.
  6. Organize cultural programs and recreational parties for the elderly.
  7. Reinforce the relationship and cooperation with public and private institutions working in the field of elderly service.

 

Services provided by the Home:

 

  1. Psychological, social, recreational and rehabilitation services to keep the elderly people related to the surrounding community so as to foster their feelings of psychological stability and security.
  2. Communication among generations through the promotion of linkages between individuals in the community, and through outside visits, tours and various gathering events.
  3. Health services, including physical therapy services and motor programs for the elderly people whose health conditions require so.
  4. Handicrafts and vocational hobbies to keep the elderly busy during their leisure time, encourage them to recover their motor skills naturally, and urge them to rely on themselves.
