On 5/3/18, Alpro physio has organized a visit to Pusat Jagaan Warga Emas Tong Sim Seremban. The nursing home was established in 2006 and has been operating for 11 years, with a total of 9 permanent residents currently. The operation of the nursing home is fully covered by the management and donations from the enthusiasts. The residents are very united and they team up to prepare meals for everyone. It was very heartwarming to see an uncle despite suffering from stroke, still took up the role to cook lunch for everyone.
Our physiotherapists gathered the residents and conducted a group exercise to maintain their joint mobility and muscle function. They also designed some simple games to get everyone involved and engaged in the exercise. In the end of the program, our physiotherapists also personally assessed and treated a few of residents who required more specific physiotherapy care. The residents sent us off with smiles and a reminder to visit them again. It was a very rewarding morning, both for the residents and the physiotherapists.
