“Gotong-Royong” Programme and Carnival for Senior Citizen
For older adults, good health ensures independence, security and productivity as they age. On 12 May 2017, a Mini Carnival was held for the senior citizens of Bekok. The organisations that were involved in this event were the Health Clinic Consultant Panel, KOSPEN, District Office of Labis, JPP Bekok and SEACO. The event started with Chair Aerobics. Then, senior citizens were directed to obtain a basic health check-up on Body Mass Index, Blood Pressure, Blood Glucose, Electrocardiogram, Dental and Eye Examinations. SEACO conducted the ECG tests whereas other tests were performed by KOSPEN, Ophthalmology Unit from Hospital Segamat and the Dental Department from the Labis Health Clinic. SEACO managed to perform 114 ECG tests at this event. It is very crucial to keep an active and healthy lifestyle during older age. Exercise and strength training can help you look and feel younger and stay active longer. Regular exams and early detection of disease can significantly improve your chances of maintaining good health as you age.
