HPUPM, 1 0CT 2021- This year, the University Putra Malaysia Teaching Hospital (HPUPM) has organized its first International Day for the Older Person (IDOP) and the event was organized by the Geriatric unit, Department of Medicine in collaboration with the Malaysian Society of Geriatric Medicine (MSGM). This program aimed to provide exposure and knowledge to the public on the care of older adults with physical disability, nutrition, risk of falls, and urinary incontinence, as well as the care in the hospital.

The celebration begun with an official visit from the Hospital Director, Prof. Madya Dr. Hj Muhammad Bin Mohd Isa, and the presentation of Goodie bags to all older patients in the Medical Ward, followed by a Facebook live talk. The Virtual event was live-streamed on HPUPM's official Facebook page - https://www.facebook.com/hpupm/videos/429250781890853. During the Facebook live talk, the audience was introduced to new services provided under the geriatric unit which were “Fracture Liaison Service and Klinik Diet Warga Emas”. It was fascinating to grab the chance to provide such services to the elderly. In addition, a total of 1.2k audiences, consisting public and healthcare personnel have viewed the talk. Audiences were happy and thankful for the sharing session; one of the audiences wrote “The talks were very informative for all because everyone is going through the aging process.”

The celebration of IDOP is a great initiative not only to empower Malaysians to understand elderly care but also to introduce a variety of interventions related to the care of older persons.
