It is necessary to have Islamic Education Program as there is an emergency in facing the twilight years and others including the Covid-19 Pandemic. The researcher has researched Islamic Education Program specifically targeted to the Elderly in MHCC. The research method was descriptive analytic using observations, interviews, documentation, and analysis with triangulation. The result of the research has generated a setup that the Islamic Education Programme for the Elderly consist of the reciting of the Al-Quran and its translations, the knowledge of Fiqh’ related to daily living for the elderly taught by religious teachers; physical education together with physiotherapy activities using sports equipment such as treadmill; mental and spiritual guidance for the elderly facing depression and stress by an occupational therapist as well as religious teachers. Other research has shown similarities in the treatment of health and psychology towards the elderly. The result of this research shows that Islamic Education instils constant religious practice in the heart of the elderly although they lack the mobility to seek education outside. To further improve the program, it is suggested to increase the interaction between caretaker and elderly and to practice more “Zikir” together. This is to increase the sense of kinship.
