In an era where healthcare takes centre stage, ReGen Rehab crafted an enriching experience for patients and caregivers alike, ensuring that each participant departed with a deeper understanding of rehabilitation and recovery education for a wide array of medical conditions, including orthopaedic, post-stroke, geriatric & elderly care, and post-surgical patients.

Mr. Hanafi Salehuddin, Chief Executive Officer of ReGen Rehab, expressed the profound impact of the event, stating, “Our Recipes For Recovery experience stands as a living embodiment of our unwavering commitment of “Bringing You Back” to your best self.

Datin Dr. Lydia Abdul Latif, Chief Medical Officer and Consultant Rehabilitation Physician of ReGen Rehab, who led the charge in unravelling the hardships of rehabilitative recovery remarked, “Our primary objective with ‘Recipes For Recovery’ is to educate the public with a deep understanding of rehabilitation and its many facets. Recovery is a dynamic process where different ingredients—be it medical expertise, therapeutic approaches, or nutritional guidance—blend seamlessly to create a transformative experience of recovery. When all the above factors come into play, patients would experience faster recovery with better outcomes, optimising their quality of life and well-being, hence translating to overall lower medical and social costs.”
The event transcended traditional healthcare narratives, where learning met delight. Four captivating highlights awaited the public:
Illusions, Delusions, Confusions on Recovery
Ms. Wong Ming Sze, Occupational Therapist at ReGen Rehab Hospital
Conducted by Datin Dr. Lydia and ReGen Rehab experts, the talk dispelled myths and misconceptions surrounding rehabilitative recovery. Rather than just presenting information, it spotlighted the indispensable roles played by various experts, including Rehabilitation Physicians, multi-speciality therapists, rehabilitation-trained nurses, and dietitians. Each expert’s contribution was highlighted, emphasising that in the journey to rehabilitation recovery, each piece is as crucial as the other.
Hands-on activities were also demonstrated during the talks, ensuring all participants were allowed to fully immerse themselves in understanding the struggles of rehab patients, and the roles the ReGen Rehab experts play in their road to rehabilitative recovery.
In a workshop led by Ms. Yap Lai Yin, Dietitian at ReGen Rehab Hospital
ReGen Rehab’s dietitian and occupational therapy team hosted a “one-hand-on” Meal Preparation Demonstration, where participants had to cook using only one hand, with the other hand in an arm sling; this showcased the complexities rehabilitation patients face in relearning daily living activities. The engaging activity, product-sponsored by Quaker™ Malaysia, seamlessly merged the joy of cooking with the science of nutrition as a key recovery tool; reinforcing ReGen Rehab’s commitment to inclusive health practices.
Attendees were treated to a healthy buffet spread that surpassed the confines of a healthy meal. The feast presented delicious and nutritious dishes that not only nourished the body but captured the essence of holistic recovery. The infusion of Quaker™ Malaysia within the menu for the day also highlighted its ability to increase bodily fibre and lower blood sugar levels for rehabilitation patients; important factors to consider when crafting one’s own recipe for recovery.
