Parent Homes

 

The homes were established to provide care, health, social, psychological, recreational and educational services for the elderly in the midst of residential neighborhoods, and to keep them close to their families and social environment, in order to enhance the positive psychological feeling and deepen communication between them and members of society. These homes are like day clubs for the elderly and are distributed in all governorates of the Kingdom.


These homes are managed by NGOs, charitable funds, and private institutions, which are licensed by the Ministry of Labour and Social Development and which, supports them technically.
