"Hands That Help Are Holier Than Lips That Pray" & "Service To Mankind Is Service To God".

 

Another community service by our ALPRO PHYSIO SEREMBAN 2 Physiotherapist Malar and Eelin to Madam Yap Nursing Home at Starlight Park Seremban. This home  was established by Madam Yap since year 2011. Currently there are 34 residents and most of them are females. There will be a visit by Government Hospital Doctor monthly to this home and a private Doctor will give a visit 2 times a week. So far there are no any Physiotherapy services to this home, only the staff will be doing some morning exercises with the residents. Most of the residents are retiree, elderly, stroke cases and even Motor Vehicle Accident (MVA) victim’s. As usual we start to gather them and do some simple exercises with them. They really enjoyed the precious time we were there and compliance to us. Madam Sim, a retired staff nurse who is doing some voluntary work over there request us to come back if possible to have some time with the residents. We ended up the session with a group photo and warm smile.

 

不仅是祝福的口,更要有助人的手!

 

大专物理治疗师玛拉微妮与蔡绮琳在爱心安老院提供了另一项社区服务。该中心自2011年起由叶女士设立,目前共有34名老年人,其中大部分为女性。政府医院的医生每月固定在这间老人院为住户们做一次健康检查,而私人医务所的医生则安排每两天为他们进行一次身体检验。负责人叶女士表示,迄今为止,没有机构或自愿者提供任何物理治疗服务,住户们只能仰赖工作人员在每日早晨带领他们进行一些简单安全的暖身操。爱心安老院里的住户有许多来自退休人士、年老无子女者、中风患者,甚至有好几名因交通意外受伤而长期卧床。

物理治疗师在了解爱心安老院的住户情况后,如往常般与工作人员配合,有耐心地将住户们以搀扶或推轮椅的方式聚集在一起,接着便进行物理治疗师们精心设计的、能够强化肌肉及训练关节灵活度并适合年老人士的运动。这是个美好的时光,长者们即便有些行动不便,也露出笑容努力配合,因为他们明白这些运动可以使他们更健康,这是给物理治疗师们最好的礼物。

这里也要提到一位爱心天使——沈女士。她是一名从政府医院退休的护士,退休后的她并没有停止为有需要的人服务,每星期依然定期来到爱心安老院帮忙。她表示希望日后物理治疗师们能再安排时间探访爱心安老院,因为物理治疗是维持长者健康所需要的专业。

随文附上一些照片与结束时的大合照,大专物理治疗仍会继续努力,务求做到服务社区的责任。
