There are no public services specific for older people. Furthermore, most of the public health facilities accessible to the older persons do not have the appropriate services (Waweru et al., 2003). The basic inpatient and outpatient facilities are not sufficient to accommodate the long-term health needs of older persons (Wanja, 2016).
