Elder Abuse & Abandonment: Eldercare Center Visit Step part.1

  • مركز الامل لرعاية المسنين- الجندويل (map)

As the holy month of Ramadan begins, our job as medical students and activists in the scope of human rights to raise awareness and improve the community’s perspective towards elder rights begins with it.
This project focuses on elder rights locally and globally. What we are trying to do in this project is to accomplish a better and deeper understanding about their rights and the abuse they might face and define its types by raising the awareness in our community to a level that suits a modern and educated society like ours.
In this step, we will visit an eldercare center that provides the special needs and requirements to senior citizens. We will talk to them about their feelings and the reasons behind them being in the eldercare center. This step aims to conclude the reasons behind elder abandonment, find solutions to solve this problem, and to educate medical student about the proper way to treat elders through interacting directly with them.
