Royal Society for Senior Citizens



The Royal Society for Senior Citizens expresses deep appreciation for the health camps being conducted for Senior citizens by the Ministry of Health in Thimphu City.




However the access to medical and health care in Bhutan is free, the survey conducted under the joint initiative of UNDP and RSSC in 2012, about 98% of 101563 respondents of senior citizens desire for special medical facilities like doctors visiting senior citizen home, establishment of old age nursing homes, and special visiting hours in the hospitals.

There are some common ailments faced by the old aged senior citizens who are problematic for them to visit the hospital and nearby health centres. In such cases, mobile dispensaries will be initiated to avoid older persons travelling by the public transports. Giving nursing care, injection, checking of blood pressure, taking urine or blood test can be done by the mobile health team professionals at the door steps of the elder patients.
