Earlier this month our office received a call from Sister Fadilah, a participant in our program which specifically supports senior Muslims in the community. She requested for someone to visit as she was feeling a little lonely. June Aini Hussain, Community Development Officer, visited immediately the next day.
Sister Fadilah shared that she had experienced a fall and as a result was not able to move around. She had broken her hip and the Doctor had asked her to minimise movement so that it can heal quicker.
The Sister’s conversational skills had not deteriorated at all and both thoroughly enjoyed chatting about many things across a couple of hours – and across some famous Bosnian coffee and scrumptious home-made cake!
Fadilah showed June some photos taken at past MWASA events; she enjoyed her younger days when she participated in many different MWASA activities. Fadilah’s daughter, who is also her carer, was also present. Sister June updated them on the current program and is investigating how MWASA can further assist in this case.
If you know a senior community member aged 65 years and over who could benefit from MWASA/CHSP services and programs, please visit the program page for further details on eligibility and registration. Alternatively, please call our office during office hours on 08 81212 0800 and ask to speak to June.
