||The presenter is the Honorary Secretary of the Gerontology Association of Malaysia (GeM)
||This presentation shares experiences on how to empower family institutions as well as how these changes are impacting the current scenario such as increasing social or negative symptoms. A new culture that is not filtered to the family. The institution of the family is increasingly challenging, parents are unaware of the condition of the children. Parents, grandparents and the community are unprepared from the knowledge, mentality and awareness to cope with new scenarios. Actions that can be taken to cope with the transition of new scenarios are through continuous learning for parents, grandparents and the community, creating a mutually supportive growing environment, enabling grandparents to assist in parenting, more integrated, more knowledgeable and sustainable family governance and a more caring community.
