The Community Development Authority (CDA) pays special attention to the senior citizens, and is keen to integrate them into the community. The authority also promotes the transfer of their knowledge and experience at a level commensurate with their physical condition and needs. CDA believes that benefiting from the expertise of the senior citizens is absolutely necessary for sustainable development.
The senior citizens have extensive expertise accumulated over many years, especially those who have witnessed the formation of the Federation and the different stages of the state development. It is such a waste to overlook these experiences, this knowledge and the cultural heritage that our younger generations need.
For the purpose of providing social services, the CDA defined the senior citizens as anyone above the age of 60 - the retirement age in the UAE. According to the Dubai Statistics Center, the senior citizens account for nearly 6.6% of total Emirati population in Dubai. This percentage is expected to rise gradually based on the continuous increasing of people's age & the development of health care services, which makes the senior citizens one of the most important community groups for which CDA provides various services.
Community Development Authority collaborated with a number of government authorities and private companies and issued the Thukher Card, which provides a package of services and facilities for the senior citizens in recognition of their contributions and effective role in building our society.
Thukher Social Club offers a number of activities, events and daily programmes that meet the needs of the senior citizens. These span across a range of interests including cultural, social, recreational and health.
Weleef is a program that provides care and improves the quality of life of senior citizens UAE nationals who live alone in Dubai. Weleef runs regular training courses on best practices to professionals who, in turn, offer a range of social services to the senior citizens at their place of residence.
The Community Development Authority (CDA) trains and educates servants who provide care services to the senior citizens with regard to social and health.
The Intergenerational Communication Initiative sees 20 of its registered senior citizens transfer their knowledge and experiences to students at schools and universities.
