The Care Center for the Elderly in the Sarajevo Canton, which has been acting as a public institution since 1952, provides accommodation, shelter, healthcare services and social events for the needy senior citizens. A total of 370 senior citizens live at the center with 116 employees, for which the resources are provided from the budget of the Sarajevo Canton.
