Tak­ing care of elderly par­ents

The Star Malaysia - Star2 - - Stroke Awareness -

ARE you wor­ried whether your helper at home is tak­ing good care of your aged par­ents or loved ones?

If your aged par­ent suf­fers from stroke or is not fit to be home alone due to med­i­ca­tion needs or phys­i­cal lim­i­ta­tions af­ter a surgery, KPJ Se­nior Liv­ing Care is a good choice for re­ha­bil­i­ta­tive ther­apy, as­sisted liv­ing and post-oper­a­tive care.

It is lo­cated strate­gi­cally at KPJ Tawakkal Health Cen­tre, Jalan Pa­hang, Kuala Lumpur.

The nurs­ing home is also sup­ported by other es­tab­lished ser­vices such as KPJ KL Re­ha­bil­i­ta­tion Cen­tre, KPJ KL Den­tal Spe­cial­ist Cen­tre, Con­sul­tants Clin­ics, Hae­modial­y­sis Ser­vice, Di­ag­nos­tic Imag­ing Ser­vice (X-ray and OPG/den­tal X-ray) and Eye Cen­tre.

KPJ Tawakkal Spe­cial­ist Hos­pi­tal is only a two-minute walk­ing dis­tance from KPJ Tawakkal Health Cen­tre for any emer­gency cases.

KPJ Se­nior Liv­ing Care of­fers the wide range of care from low to high care, from in­de­pen­dent liv­ing to res­i­den­tial aged care

The facility pro­vid­ing 24-hour res­i­den­tial care is af­ford­able and all cul­tural and reli­gious dif­fer­ences are re­spected.

Other than serv­ing a long-term res­i­dent or a short-term re­ha­bil­i­ta­tion res­i­dent, an adult day­care pro­gramme is also pro­vided for so­cial­i­sa­tion and to give care­givers a needed break.

How­ever, a con­sul­tant will need to assess what level of care is re­quired and then de­velop a per­son­alised care plan that meets your spe­cific needs.

The team com­prises con­sul­tants, nurses and ther­a­pists work­ing to­gether to pro­vide the high­est qual­ity care to meet the in­di­vid­ual needs.

Re­ha­bil­i­ta­tion physi­cians and ther­a­pists will work closely to de­velop a re­ha­bil­i­ta­tive care pro­gramme within the wide spec­trum from phys­i­cal and oc­cu­pa­tional ther­apy to speech ther­apy to serve the res­i­dent’s spe­cific needs.

Ba­si­cally, the care ser­vice con­sists of rooms, nurs­ing care, weekly doc­tor vis­its and meals. There are also fa­cil­i­ties such as a liv­ing hall, din­ing area, mini gym­na­sium, mini li­brary, recre­ational room and, more im­por­tantly, a so­cial area such as a karaoke room and rooftop gar­den for large fam­ily gath­er­ings.

The cheerful team and com­fort­able en­vi­ron­ment make the over­all facility feels like home for the res­i­dents and guests. KPJ Se­nior Liv­ing Care (Nurs­ing Home) un­der­stands the chal­lenges and stress fam­i­lies face when deal­ing with frus­trat­ing sit­u­a­tions re­lat­ing to elderly care.

Thus, it aims to pro­vide pro­fes­sional and com­pas­sion­ate care as well as en­cour­age an ac­tive and healthy lifestyle for the elderly, giv­ing the fam­ily mem­bers peace of mind that their loved one are in safe hands.
