Brussels: Plans for first Muslim retirement home
Via HLN (Dutch):
Muslim theologian Abdelkader Dahmichi intends to open the first Muslim retirement home. The private home will be open for everyone and could be open in 2014, possibly in Molenbeek, according to a report in La Capitale.
Dahmichi is concerned about the situation of elderly Muslims. "Currently there's no specific home for them with is adapted to their religion," says the professor, who works at the Islamic Center of Belgium.
"This project is not a call to place our elderly en masse in a nursing home. It should offer a solution for emergency cases, when the children can't care for their parents any more."
