Historic Day

Exchanging MoU of both side, UKM and PWEHL
Senior citizens are still able to contribute substantially to the country's education sector through volunteer services at the university or medical research center. It is evidenced by the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) between the Association of Senior Citizens Hulu Langat (PWEHL) with The National University of Malaysia (UKM), yesterday.

Dean and Director of the UKM Medical Centre, Professor Dato’ Dr Raymond Azman Ali said the cooperation with the PWEHL has started since 2007 and is now cemented through the MoU so that it is more formal.

"We see the elderly as a valuable asset that can help drive the country's medical and research fields in the long run.
"For example, we train a number of senior citizens to be "standard patient" and assist UKM in conducting clinical examinations for students from the Faculty of Medicine," he said.

He was speaking at a press conference after witnessing the signing of MoU between PWEHL and UKM at UKM Medical Centre yesterday.

UKM was represented by Deputy Vice Chancellor of Industry and Community Partnerships, Professor Dato’ Dr. Saran Kaur Gill and while PWEHL was represented by Mr. President, Muzir Aseral.

Dr. Raymond said, UKM will continue to strengthen cooperation with the local community, especially senior citizens to enrich the field of research, education and services.
"For standard patients, it not only affects the elderly but also requires infants, children, adolescents and adults. "However, for senior citizens, we take the initiative to train them to assist the UKM at the same time provide greater fairness to students who attend an important exam," he said.

He said many interesting activities provided by the UKM to shine up and cheer to senior citizens.

"We respected PWEHL’s vision to create a senior citizen development model that is applicable for all parties. Indeed, UKM were proud to support and be a facilitator in any association activities, as long as it provides the common good, "he said.

What do you mean when you say 'a healthy elderly"? Does it mean an elderly without any illness? But is it fair to say that an elderly who has hypertension unhealthy? According WHO, health is "a state of complete physical, mental and social well being and not merely the absence of diseases and infirmity". This definition was updated fifty years later with the addition of two words, "Health is a dynamic state of complete physical, mental, spiritual and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity".

Never too late to learn” was the title of an article in the section Star Educate (Sunday 19th June 2011). Inspiring stories regarding some older Malaysian who were involved in the activities under the University of the Third Age (U3A) at the Institute of Gerontology (IG), Universiti Putra Malaysia were laid down. It is a very good project piloted by IG and it is hoped that these activities will keep on going. Perhaps this type of project can be taken up, even at small scale by other stakeholders. Reflecting what I wrote in my blog in 2008 titled “Post Doctorate at 82”, where I felt very inspired after talking to an elderly participant who attended the British Socitey of Gerontology conference. She came not only as participant but presented a paper. The moral behind all these is that the elderly people want and should maximise their health and vitality. And the younger generations should be aware of their needs and work together with them.
