Dubai Healthcare City (DHCC), Dubai’s dedicated healthcare free zone, and VITA, a UAE-based healthcare investment company, have signed an agreement to open the UAE’s first centre specialising in healthcare services for the elderly.

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.

\The new geriatric centre, operated through VITA Care, will be a key component of Dubai Healthcare City Phase 2, a health and wellness destination located in Al Jaddaf Dubai, overlooking Dubai Creek. Under the landmark agreement, VITA and its medical and operating partners will build a state-of-the-the art healthcare facility, offering comprehensive healthcare services for elderly Emirati and expatriates over the age of 65.

As medical improvements in society ensure that people live longer, the question of care extends beyond purely medical and shifts to quality of life and end of life care. With the UAE hosting one of the largest senior populations in the region, and second highest in the GCC for life expectancy, the need for such care facilities has become more compelling.
