[Media Release] MOU AIM Healthcare/iElder and ACT4Health to sign MOU to establish training programme for Management of Older Persons
You're invited to attend the MOU Signing between ACT4Health and iElder.asia!
As we and our loved ones age, we grow vulnerable to life-changing health complications, such as a stoke or dementia.
In most cases, we find ourselves caught unprepared for such a scenario, and struggle to adapt with the circumstances, wishing we had more time to learn and prepare.
iElder.asia and ACT4Health will be signing a MOU during the SIBS EXPO in KLCC, to provide elderly assessment services and assement training to caretakers in Malaysia, which will enable elderlies to detect health complications before they turn serious, allowing families to prepare themselves way ahead of time.
Rapid aging will be a crucial megatrend affecting Malaysia in the coming decades.
According to World Bank, going from an aging to aged society in just 24 years, the country’s transition happens at a similar pace to Japan’s and follows the trend of other high-income economies.
In 2020, more than 7 percent of the population will be age 65 and above, meeting the conventional international definition of an “aging society”
By 2044, 14 percent of the population is expected to be above 65 years of age making Malaysia an “aged society”
Come 2056, Malaysia will be a “super-aged society”, with over 20 percent of its population above the age of 65.
As this population ages, the demand for products and services that improve their quality of life will follow. We at iElder.Asia and ACT4Health in the healthcare industry would do well to prepare ourselves to receive this demographic with the proper goods and services to meet their needs.
MEDIA RELEASE: iElder.Asia signs MOU with ACT4Health
Kuala Lumpur, 7 October 2022 – ACT4Health and Asian Integrated Medical Sdn Bhd (AIM Healthcare) have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to offer elderly health assessment services for Malaysian seniors and training programmes for geriatric caretakers across Malaysia.
ACT4Health, a spin-off company under the University of Malaya, provides training and health assessments based on independent research evidence. Set up by the Ageing and Age-Associated Disorders Research Group and led by one of the leading professors in University of Malaya’s Faculty of Medicine - Prof. Dr. Tan Maw Pin, ACT4Health seeks to improve healthcare for older persons in Malaysia and Southeast Asia through training, consultancy, research and health promotion.
The MoU is a cohesive effort by both organisations to provide accessibility to upscaling in skill for local caretakers caring for the elderly, and to raise the level and quality of geriatric healthcare within Malaysia. The goal is to improve the current state of geriatric care in Malaysia until we stand on par with some of the current world leaders such as Japan, Sweden, and Norway. ACT4Health will work closely with iElder.Asia (a subsidiary of AIM Healthcare) to outreach to and provide professional training opportunities to caretakers, in an effort to increase the number of reliable elderly assessment services available across Malaysia, whilst studying and sharing data to improve the level of services provided by both parties.
