Alpro physio community services at Rahang area (Weng Da Old Folk’s Home)
Alpro physio had visited Weng Da Old Folk’s Home for our weekly community service routine.
Weng Da Old Folk’s Home was established by Miss Liew (Manager) since 2001. There are 40 residents over the home and 18 of them are actually homeless. According to the manager, they are aware of the physiotherapy service needs, yet they cannot afford to provide the service to the elderlies due to inadequate funds. They were glad that, Alpro physio provided them the services they need.
As usual, our physiotherapist had given a simple talk regarding “The importance of exercise among elderlies” and conducted some simple exercises for them to perform it as daily regime to enhance their quality of life. We also provided some physiotherapy assessment and treatment to the bed ridden or disabilities one. In the meantime, we met a fracture elderly which experience motor vehicle accident on December 2017. Unfortunately, this incident cause her multiple fracture and also lost her husband. Due to multiple fractures on her entire body, she desperately needs physiotherapy treatment to optimize her quality of life. Our physiotherapist had assessed her and tailored treatment according to her needs.
We hope we can constantly provide community services by understanding their needs and contribute to the community more.
Last but not least, Miss Liew also claimed that currently Weng Da Old Folk’s Home is still high depending on external donations to run their operations. For those who interested to make any donations, please do not hesitate to contact Miss Liew (019-3628717).
