Emirates ID honours UAE’s Elderly by marking the International Day of Older Persons

The Emirates Identity Authority has honoured a number of the oldest living people and the elderly across the UAE in celebration of the International Day for Older Persons which is observed on 1st October each year.

The theme of this year’s event is: "The future we want: what older persons are saying". It aims to showcase the contributions that older people can make to society while promoting the need to take care of them and provide them with the best possible services and attention.
Emirates ID affirmed that its participation in the event is in line with its keenness to appreciate the role played by this valuable segment of society and celebrate parents who devoted their lives to growing and bringing up good generations.

It added that honoring older persons is a religious, national, ethical and humanitarian duty towards our parents and grandparents, those who spent their lives serving their families and society and contributed in building up and developing the UAE, leading it to the advancement and growth it is enjoying in different fields. It also complements the values emanating from Emirates ID?s strategic plan embodied in active participation in social events, and promotion of social compassion among society members.
In this context, Emirates ID donated 150 devices blood pressure and blood sugar measuring devices to elderly people visiting its service centres across UAE. Elderly persons were also treated courteously, their applications were processed attentively and their issues were promptly solved.

Events held on the occasion included organising lectures on the roles that older persons can play in current society, the need to benefit from their experiences and transfer their knowledge to new generations in order to preserve the inheritance of our ancestors and maintain the UAE?s rich cultural heritage. Lectures also emphasised the priority to provide elderly people with care and attention and to respect them, representing the teachings of Islam and reflecting the UAE intrinsic social values.

In Fujairah, Emirates ID’s Service Centre, in collaboration with the Humanitarian Services Department, organised an initiative to deliver gifts and devices for checking blood pressure and blood sugar to the older persons who receive the Department?s Home Care Services. Gifts and monitoring devices were also given out to elderly customers who visited the centre.

The older persons visited by Emirates ID’s delegations, as well as their families, expressed their gratitude and appreciation to the Authority and its leadership for such an initiative, stressing that it brought happiness to their hearts. They said that the initiative reflects Emirates ID’s commitment to social responsibility and its persistent endeavours to provide the best and highest levels of services to its customers in particular and Emirati society members in general, thereby contributing to achieving happiness for all and putting smiles on their faces.
