Abstract

Low participation of elderly in posyandu lansia Program because of the fear of knowing their illness or lack socialization about implementation program and then limited health workers are some problems in the implementation of the posyandu lansia program especially at Puskesmas Jua Gaek in Solok Regency of West Sumatera. The working area of the Puskesmas Jua gaek consists of nine jorong areas With the structure of the rural area and the majority of the population are a farmer that makes the posyandu lansia program was not maximum and fully followed by the elderly population. Although the implementation of the posyandu lansia program is still carried out regularly every month, there is no significant increase in the number of elderly people to participate. Even though the implementation of this program is included in the routine budget of puskesmas Jua Gaek . The condition of the Covid-19 pandemic also affects the implementation of the posyandu lansia program although it is still carried out every month but on implementation the health worker still working face to face with the elderly. The problem is whether the implementation of the posyandu lansia program could improve the quality of life of the elderly when the participation of the elderly is minimal?. This paper answers these questions and at the same time provides an alternative choice of implementing the elderly posyandu program by making a schedule to picking up the elderly.
