TENA Empower Geriatric Lifestyle Care Among Malaysians | Care | Challenge | Improvement

Take care of geriatric is a need and responsible for all. TENA, The Understanding Specialist and Continence Foundation of Malaysia recently launched the ‘Sentiasa Denganmu Mak Abah di Mana Jua: Idea Mudah Untuk Rumah, Ibu Bapa Kita Lebih Selesa’ Campaign to empower adult children to be more aware of the little things they can do and how they can play an active role in understanding the many challenges their parents face, including the onset of incontinence which occurs in 1 out of 2 older persons . 

As incontinence can affect one’s parents’ mobility and quality of life, the campaign offers practical suggestions from experts on proper care, management and simple improvements in their homes to help elderly parents feel more comfortable while reducing the risk of falls. 

Incontinence affects 1.4 million Malaysians and is estimated to increase by 4.5% annually.1 Despite this, studies have shown that 69% do not seek help  largely due to embarrassment and social stigma.

“At TENA, we firmly believe that an active life with incontinence is still possible, hence the need to raise greater awareness so that the condition can be managed effectively with the RIGHT solutions and support, especially from family members,” said Debby Ho, Marketing Manager, Vinda Malaysia. “The last thing our parents want to do is to trouble us, and it is even tougher for them to bring up a sensitive topic such as incontinence. This is why TENA recognizes the great need to empower children with simple steps and small gestures that can help our parents feel as comfortable as possible, especially at home, without making them feel small,” she explained.

In line with this, TENA works with experts to provide holistic solutions including simple home improvement ideas as well as product solutions, such as TENA Pants, an absorbent underwear which enables them retain their dignity and freedom to enjoy their golden years without fear or embarrassment.

“Incontinence is very common, affecting approximately 50% of older persons. This impacts their lives in many ways, from remaining homebound out of embarrassment or visiting the toilet frequently throughout the day. As they are staying at home for most of the day, it is of utmost importance to prevent our elderly parents from a fall as it could lead to many other complications such as difficulty recovering, as well as other complications if they are hospitalized,” explained Dr Peter Ng, consultant urologist and president of Continence Foundation of Malaysia.

In addition to using TENA Pants, simple home improvements can make a big difference since elderly parents spend the most time at home. In support of the ‘Sentiasa Denganmu Mak Abah di Mana Jua: Idea Mudah Untuk Rumah, Ibu Bapa Kita Lebih Selesa’ Campaign, renowned Malaysian designer Dr Eric Leong shares home improvement ideas in phases on the TENA Facebook page ( and TENA website (

“One of the best things we can do for our parents is help them maintain their independence, and home ideas in the bedroom, bathroom and living room can make it much easier for them to move around safely,” said Dr Leong. “These can be complemented with the right colours and refreshing scents to make their homes more relaxing.”

In addition to recommendations from experts, the campaign also provides other educational support through the TENA website, where the Caring 101 e-Handbook can be downloaded and product samples can be requested.

Active lifestyle is important to keep us stay healthy body and alert mindset. Being active living is a way of life that integrates physical activity into our everyday routines such as walking, running, zumba, yoga and so on.

Combination of physical activity and recreation activities are able to encourage a healthier lifestyle. It goes to MR and MH too, mouse mommy has 2 active boys that always find something to do. In this era, digital gadget is a norm. There is always an argument whether we should allow our kids to play gadget?

Computing is unable to avoid in our society now. Kids have to expose, explore and know how to function it. At the same time, physical fitness is so important to keep them alert and overall wellness too!

Do you allow your children to play physically? Yes, mouse mommy does allow MR and MH to join indoor and outdoor play. And mouse mommy will join the fun physical activities together too.

As for outdoor activities, we love to join family fun run together. That is one of the exciting physical activities that we love - run, sweat, detox, chat, bonding, explore, experience and relaxation. This is the time that we can run together. 

Sometimes, MR will complaint of no energy in the middle of the run. Then, mouse mommy and MH will encourage and ganbatte for bro MR to keep going. No one will left behind but moving forward together. 

Same goes to any obstacles that we might be facing, as long as we are keep going and solve it, there will be a solution / result at the end of it. Victory is awaits at the ending point always.

Sometimes, mouse mommy is too tired in the middle of the run. MR is so sweet to pluck flowers by the roadside and gifted to mouse mommy with a big hug and energy kiss on my cheek. OK let’s go! Mouse mommy can continue join the family fun run!

The kids also get to learn and know the environment surrounded us. 

Through our running experience, we got the opportunity to explore different place, plants, animals and habitat at hills, animal farm, vege farm, KL city, mangrove and river. That is our real life experience!

As for indoor activities, we love to join KidZania indoor activities. Spend a day in KidZania can really make us sleep well once reached home. 

There are many activities that required the kids to “hands-on” and “Do-It-Yourself (DIY)” by themselves, such as KidZania Cash and Valuables Transport as banking security service that required MR to courier the delivery items to the respective departments or stores.

Mouse mommy always believes that our children can perform if we give them a task and opportunity. Let the kids take up the responsibility to learn how, what to do and get the job done. If they did the job well, give them appraise. If not, no worries, we can do post-mortem together to see anything goes wrong. Let’s discuss and get a solution!  

There are many role-play and job responsibilities at KidZania Kuala Lumpur to let our kids to explore, experiment and experience

There will be never the same experience every time that we visited to KidZania!
