[:ID]PROGRAM RAMAH LANSIA SAMBANGI KELURAHAN MACCINI DI MAKASSARMAKASSAR. Salah satu indikator keberhasilan dari pembangunan kesehatan di Indonesia adalah meningkatnya angka harapan hidup. Indikator tersebut bisa terlihat dengan semakin meningkatnya populasi lansia. Sebagai upaya untuk meningkatkan angka harapan hidup, Rumah Zakat dan Cita Sehat Foundation sebagai mitra kesehatan Rumah Zakat bersinergi dengan Puskesmas Maccini menggulirkan program Ramah Lansia.

Rabu (09/05) pagi, Rumah Zakat bersama Cita Sehat mengadakan program Ramah Lansia di Kelurahan Maccini untuk pertama kalinya. Para lansia sangat antusias untuk memeriksakan kesehatannya. Kegiatan dimulai dengan registrasi, penimbangan berat badan, pengukuran tinggi badan, pemeriksaan tekanan darah dan pemeriksaan metabolik.

Selain fasilitas pemeriksaan kesehatan, adapula penyuluhan kesehatan mengenai cara pencegahan meningkatnya gula darah yang disampaikan oleh Nani Andhani, A.Md Kep. Materi tersebut dipilih berdasarkan riset yang dilakukan oleh tim pelaksana yang menemukan bahwa rata-rata gula darah lansia di wilayah Maccini mencapai 200.

“Alhamdulillah saya baru pertama kali ikut pemeriksaan kesehatan seperti ini, ternyata gula saya tinggi, jadi saya harus rutin periksa gula. Terima kasih Rumah Zakat.” Ujar Hafsah (62), salah satu penerima manfaat.

Meskipun program Ramah Lansia baru pertama kali dilaksanakan, akan tetapi minat dan antusia dari warga sangat tinggi, terbukti sebanyak 60 orang hadir dalam kegiatan tersebut. Usai pemeriksaan dan penyuluhan, kegiatan ditutup dengan pembagian makanan tambahan berupa bubur dan kurma.

Makassar [:en]PROGRAM RAMAH LANSIA SAMBANGI KELURAHAN MACCINI DI MAKASSARMAKASSAR. One indicator of the success of health development in Indonesia is the increase of life expectancy. This indicator can be seen with the increasing of elderly population. In an effort to increase life expectancy, Rumah Zakat and Cita Sehat Foundation as health partners Rumah Zakat synergize with Puskesmas Maccini rolled out Elderly Friendly program.

Wednesday (09/05) morning, Rumah Zakat together with Cita Sehat held the Elderly Friendly program in Maccini Village for the first time. The elderly were very enthusiastic to check their health. Activity began with registration, weighing, height measurement, blood pressure check and metabolic examination.

In addition to health screening facilities, there is health counseling on how to prevent the increase of blood sugar delivered by Nani Andhani, A.Md Kep. The material was selected based on research conducted by the implementing team that found that the average elderly blood sugar in the Maccini region reached 200.

“Alhamdulillah, this is my first time to follow a health check like this, it turns out my glucose level is high, so I have to check my glucose regularly. Thank you Rumah Zakat.” Hafsah (62) Said, one of the beneficiaries.

Although the Elderly Friendly program was first implemented, the interest and anticipation of the residents was very high, as many as 60 people attended the event. After examination and counseling, the activities were closed with supplementary food distribution in the form of porridge and dates.
