'Estima Gang' Menace
PETALING JAYA: A gang of four parang-wielding robbers who move around in a white Toyota Estima are terrorising Klang Valley residents after pulling off at least 11 robbery cases in the past two months.

Except for two cases where they were reported to have come in a Toyota Vellfire and a Lexus MPV, the robbers had used a heavily-tinted white Toyota Estima in the rest of the robberies they committed.

The vehicles were fitted with false number plates in all cases.

Dubbed the “Estima Gang”, the robbers are behind nine cases in Selangor and two in Kuala Lumpur.

Police have reports from victims in Puchong, USJ, Cheras, Bukit Antarabangsa and Rawang. Read more .....

What you need to know about preventing seniors from falls

Are senior citizens falling at home or outside? If they are falling outside, what are the factors that cause them to fall? And if they are falling at home, one should be concerned about the home environment.
Questions pertaining to the elderly and falls are issues that interest Associate Professor Dr Tan Maw Pin of the Faculty of Medicine, Universiti Malaya. She is also consultant geriatician with Universiti Malaya Medical Centre.
“By asking specific questions, we’re able to tell how common falls are and where seniors are falling. If they are falling outside, is it because the pavements are uneven?” asked Dr Tan.  Read more

Programme aims to empower seniors to take charge of their health

There is a black hole with regard to social protection for the elderly in Malaysia. Post-retirement, there is no unified national strategy for social protection in the areas of healthcare and finances for seniors, said Associate Professor Dr Shahrul Bahyah Kamaruzzaman.
If an elderly person is not a pensioner, and they and their children are low-income earners, they are probably going to be dependent on the state for financial aid, said Dr Shahrul, a consultant geriatrician at Universiti Malaya Medical Centre (UMMC). And if complications set in for a sick elderly person, there is added financial burden.
“Many do not buy health insurance and not everyone has a golden nest egg. There is no national strategy to initiate savings from young or plan for old age,” said Dr Shahrul. Read more .....

The Star interviews SS20 MELoR participants

I used to smoke 60 cigarettes a day. Now I have quit smoking, says David Cho.
David Cho, 68, a former bank officer, was a heavy smoker. When he found that it was getting more expensive to feed his habit, he quit smoking in 2005. “I used to smoke 60 cigarettes a day or three packets. In those days, a packet of cigarettes cost RM7. Today, it is more than RM10,” said Cho. “I’m better off spending money on nutritious food.”
In 2007, he had a stroke. He woke up one morning and experienced immobility on the left side of his body. Then last December, Cho slipped and fell when he stepped on a pool of water on mossy ground. He fractured his arm.
These days, he walks slowly and uses a cane to steady himself. He has not regained full use of his left hand. Cho enrolled as a participant in Universiti Malaya’s Malaysian Elders Longitudinal Research (MELoR) last month.
“I get free blood tests and health checks. I’m more informed about my health status,” said Cho who does tai chi daily to keep fit.
“Every new day is a bonus,” he added.
Knowing my health status gave me confidence. At MELoR, the health screenings are free for all participants, says Chua Piak Chwee.
Chua Piak Chwee, 69, a former agricultural officer, is pleased with his health screening by MELoR. “Except for my high cholesterol, I’ve no major health problems.” Cho has been on medication for mild hypertension and cholesterol for the past decade.
“Knowing my health status gave me confidence. A blood test can cost over RM100. At MELoR, the health screenings are free for all participants,” said Chua.
During the home interviews by MELoR, he was asked if he would stay in a retirement village if one was built.
“I would rather stay in a well-run retirement village with medical facilities than go to a nursing home which is not well run. Anyway, retirement villages or nursing homes are for those who are not independent and do not have family support,” said Chua, who added that he would rather stay home with his family.
As a MELoR participant, Chua received tips on keeping his home safe and age-friendly. “When using the staircase, hold the railing. The bedroom should be kept simple without any obstruction. Bathrooms should not be wet and slippery but kept dry. And use slip-free mats.”
Dr Lim reckons the study aims to find out the kind of environment that is vital for the health and well-being of senior citizens.
Datin Dr Lim Ah Lan, 67, a former Botany professtor at Universiti Malaya, said: “MELoR is trying to use a sampling of the elderly participants and postulate what kind of senior citizens would live healthily and happily.”
A MELoR participant, she reckoned the study also wants to find out “what kind of environment and social interaction are vital for the health and well-being of senior citizens in Malaysia”. 
Accountant Cheah Hai Tah, 76, said that by joining MELoR, he can get his health problems checked. He has eye problems and tinnitus.  Read more ......

Beware Good Samaritans, victims could be robbers

13 July 2015
Police have advised the public to be careful when lending a hand to riders who appear to have fallen off their motorcycles because they could be robbers. 

According to Ampang Jaya district police station, two people were recently robbed after they stopped their car to help two suspects in Taman Chempaka. The suspects had purposely fallen off their motorcycle in front of the victims’ car. As expected, the 67-year-old male victim alighted from his car and found himself being threatened with a knife by one of the suspects. The other suspect then went to open his car door and grabbed the handbag of the other victim still sitting in the car. Both victims suffered about RM1,000 in losses, which included cash and a few items.

Play part to combat rise of dengue, health experts tell public

PETALING JAYA: A continuous hot and warm season would give rise to dengue cases as it is the perfect condition for mosquito-breeding, warn health experts.
Dr Muhamad Hazizi Muhamad Hasani, who is the Malaysian Integrated Medical Professionals Association (Mimpa) operations director, said there were several factors that contributed to the rise of dengue.
He said a prolonged hot season, coupled with a few rainy days, allowed more mosquitoes to breed at stagnant water areas.
“With such conditions, they can breed and become more active. They can even fly twice further,” he said yesterday.
He said cooperation from the public was ­needed to combat the rise of dengue as the authorities embarked on several efforts to contain its spread.  Read more .....
