COVID-19 Prevention with CHSP Seniors

Stay safe and keeping healthy is everyone’s top priority, especially for our seniors. We had officers from SA Health to come in and give us a talk about COVID-19, while clearing any doubts, concerns and misconceptions about the disease and its prevention. Our seniors were also informed on how and where to get tested and what to do in the event of them testing positive.

We hope to be able to assist our seniors to make a more informed decision about receiving the vaccine and maintaining public health. It is especially important so we can prevent the development of serious health conditions in our seniors!

My Home Hospital with CHSP Seniors

Earlier last month, our seniors attended a talk about accessing hospital-level care treatment from the comfort of their own home. With recent events, it is essential that our seniors are aware of where and how to get the medical help that they need! We hope that the introduction of hospital-in-home service that is available 24/7 so that our seniors can manage their healthcare plan well.

Muslims Meals Project @ Old Bazaar Market

The Muslim Women’s Association of SA (MWASA) supported Multicultural Aged Care (MAC) in the launch of the Muslim (Seniors) Meals Project last week at the Old Bazaar Market, Hollywood Plaza.
 
MWASA – along with other community service providers such as Uniting Communities, ARAS (Aged Rights Advocacy Service) and Catalyst Foundation – had a stall at the expo to share information with the public on our respective services and activities.  
 
About 20 of our CHSP seniors participated in the event. After the launch, they visited the information booth and then were treated to lunch. The seniors thoroughly enjoyed the day as they were able to eat lunch and socialize with their peers in a relaxed and comfortable ambience.
