Healthy Ageing: Helping Older Adults Age In Place

Sending older family members to residential aged care facilities is still stigmatised  in today’s society, and may not always be the best solution for caring for older family members. With the rise of part-time home care service providers, how does having that option benefit not just family members but older adults themselves? Consultant geriatrician Dr Khor Hui Min from University Malaya Medical Centre shares her thoughts on this as well as the precautions that need to be taken as well.
