SENIOR citizens don’t just need to take the right medications and dietary supplements for optimal health. They also need to get the right nutrients, especially if they are recovering from ailments.
With this in mind, Aged Care Group (ACG) and DF Pharmacy recently signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to provide easy accessibility of healthcare services to the community.
The MoU was signed by Jeff Kong Jiang Foong, DF Pharmacy managing director, and Carol Yip, ACG chief executive officer.
The collaboration aims to provide a holistic approach to elderly care in terms of dietary needs. At the signing ceremony, Kong explained that DF Pharmacy Dietetics Services will help the public, especially the elderly, monitor their food intake and weight. This service will ensure they have the necessary nutrients to recover from ailments.
“People are growing older in Malaysia, but we do not have enough aged care services for them. ACG offers a good platform for professionals to come together to provide a better lifestyle for the elderly in Malaysia,” said Kong, adding that DF Pharmacy hopes to play a more active role within the aged care sphere.
