THE Perak Community Specialist Hospital staff organised back-to-back visits to two welfare homes to spread some Chinese New Year joy to the residents there.

They first visited the Persatuan Warga Tua Seri Bahagia home at Jalan Sultan Dr Nazrin Shah and called on the Precious Gift Home the following day.

The 38 elderly folk and 17 children at the respective homes received ang pow and Chinese New Year gifts.

Hospital chief executive officer Nicholas Chan said the senior citizens were also presented with nutritional biscuits, towels and ointments.

“Our physiotherapists visit this home once a month to conduct physiotherapy exercises with the elderly, to improve their mobility.

“The next day, we took the children to McDonald’s for a fun-filled day and gave them toys and sporting equipment,” he said.

During the visit to the old folks’ home, Perak Social Welfare Committee chairman Wong May Ing said she felt honoured to be able to celebrate the Lunar New Year with the elderly.

“I hope programmes like this will motivate the younger generation to care for the less fortunate and the aged,” she said.
