23 September 2018

Orang ramai perlu berpuasa sebelum menjalani pemeriksaan penyakit kronik. Bagaimanapun, tidak begitu bagi Pemeriksaan FUNGSI.

Semasa ditemui, Cik Sinah berkata pemeriksaan sedemikian memastikan penglihatan, pendengaran dan deria rasa beliau akan dapat dikekalkan sedang beliau terus meniti hari-hari tuanya.

"Usia memang tidak menyebelahi saya. Tetapi selagi boleh, saya nak juga hidup dengan selesa sebagaimana orang lain - dapat lihat, dengar dan rasa makanan sedap dengan sempurna," katanya.

Menurutnya, lima kali seminggu (Isnin hingga Jumaat), beliau juga akan menjalani terapi di salah sebuah rumah rawatan pertubuhan Melayu/Islam setempat bagi memastikan fungsi tubuhnya juga bergerak dengan baik.

Kini, selain kakinya yang kurang kuat, Cik Sinah yang turut mengalami masalah tekanan darah tinggi berasa kesihatannya masih kekal baik.

The programme, which is underpinned by a contribution of $35 million from Temasek Foundation Cares and 11 corporate donors, will scale up the number of these checks across Singapore.

More Seniors to Benefit from Functional Screening

19 September 2018

The Ministry of Health (MOH) is partnering Temasek Foundation (TF) Cares and the business community to bring functional screening to senior citizens over the age of 60. This is in support of MOH’s efforts under the SG Cares movement, to help seniors stay healthy and age well in place.

Project Silver Screen supports basic functional screening for hearing, eyesight and oral health at subsidised rates for all citizens above 60 years old over the next few years. It is free for Pioneer Generation citizens, S$2 for CHAS card holders, and S$5 for others.

Project Silver Screen vouchers of between S$15 and S$200 will also be given to those who require aids such as spectacles, hearing aids and dentures. This is to further reduce the out of pocket costs for our senior citizens, over and above existing government subsidies, regardless of household income.
